Yarn & Fiber Colors for Week 10

Hi all and Happy Friday! Here are a few colors from last week:

BIG SUR VIEW is a Merino/Bamboo/Nylon blend and the inspiration photo is from a visit to Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California.

LAVENDER BARK was a fun experiment using Superwash BFL. This was based off of yarn that I spun using a pretty lilac/purple and a dark brown.

MEDIEVAL WALL is the second version of this roving. This one uses a wonderful Oatmeal BFL base wool which I then dyed with browns, grays, yellows.  Inspirational photo is from the Medieval Wall in Lucerne, Switzerland.

PRETZELS & BEER. What else is there to say? LOL! I have been dreaming about dyeing up this colorway since our trip to Switzerland. We visited a brewery in Lucerne where we ordered a handmade pretzel and Swiss beer. I wish I could remember the name of my drink because it a mix of beer and soda (maybe like a Sprite) and was quite refreshing! We like the brewery so much we went back a few days later for more pretzels and beer 🙂

SWEETHEART is a lace weight yarn that was a nice shade of bright pink that I over-dyed with deep purple. I like it better this way 🙂

Enjoy!
