Yarn/Roving

2012 Yarn & Fiber Colors – Weeks 21 & 22

Aloha All! Here are the colors for Weeks 21 and 22.

The first was inspired by a well known Hawaiian dessert/snack, HAWAIIAN SHAVE ICE. The best place to get one on Oahu is Aoki’s on the North Shore. The line is always long, the prices fair and you get your choice of flavors with or without sweetened Azuki beans and vanilla ice cream. Be warned though, you’ll be on a sugar high once you’ve eaten it all!

These are pastel versions in merino/bamboo roving and superwash merino lace yarn.

Traveling from the Pacific to the South, this is SOUTHERN SUMMER SUNSET, inspired by a photo taken in Raleigh, North Carolina. These are superwash Falkland British merino/nylon fingering yarn, superwash merino lambswool roving, and superwash merino lace yarn.

We head farther east to Europe for this one. This colorway has grown on me since I’m usually drawn to cooler colors, but BLOOD ORANGES always trigger fond memories of traveling through Italy in winter! These are merino/bamboo/silk roving and sw BFL/nylon fingering yarn.

And we end back on the islands with WINDWARD WATERS, inspired by the colors off the Oahu coast. These are merino/silk lace yarn and corriedale cross roving.

enjoy!
