2012 Yarn & Fiber Colors – Weeks 1 & 2

Aloha! Of course, I’m already late in posting the colors for the 1st two weeks of the year – LOL! BUT, I did manage to dye up 20 pieces this past weekend so there will be more to see in the next few weeks.

I’ve decided to try to dye up 1 yarn skein and 1 roving for each colorway since there are so many colorways that I do only one or the other, so let’s see how I do.

This is DIAMOND HEAD SUNSET in merino/cashmere/nylon yarn

and merino/bamboo/nylon roving:

and the inspirational photo taken at a beach park in Diamond Head

DA KINE in superwash merino/nylon yarn

I also did a small sample of Da Kine in merino/tencel roving which I have to post, so I’ll add that later.

WAIMANALO FLOWERS in superwash merino yarn

and merino/tencel roving

And a few new pair of socks – 2 of which that were knitted on Oahu.

(sorry mannequin feet are a little shorter than the socks):

COLUMNS SOCKS in brown:

and lastly, TRIPLE CABLE SOCKS in red/pink, knitted on Oahu:

enjoy!

  1. For someone who was taking a vacation, you certainly seem busy!

    • I was busy knitting (and dragging the hubby to yarn stores – that man deserves a medal for indulging my obsession!). And taking photos. . . photos and fiber, a match made in heaven :)
