Knitting, Yarn/Roving

2012 Yarn & Fiber Colors – Weeks 37 To 41

ALOHA!!

Been a busy month but quite exciting. I’ve been able to do more knitting than spinning and some dyeing in between but nearly as much as I would like, of course. Here are the colors for weeks 37 to 41.

I’ll start with some socks that I’ve completed. I’m hoping to submit a couple of these to KP’s Independent pattern program once I get the time to type up a submission!

This pair is LouisVuitton-Inspired socks in light & dark blue. The yarn is KP’s Gloss (merino/silk) in Dusk and Dolphin and I made one sock using Dusk as the main, and the other using Dolphin – just to show the contrast:

This pair is Crazy Crazy Eights in KP’s Chroma in Sunrise and Palette in Cayenne:

These are my Smocked Socks that I’m still testing the pattern – in KP Stroll in Mermaid and Imagination in Pixie Dust:

And onto yarn & fiber.

This is AVALON in superfine merino/lace yarn, sw merino/nylon fingering yarn and sw BFL roving:

LIGURE SUNSET 2 in merino/tencel lace yarn, merino/tencel roving and mixed BFL/silk roving:

PIETA ALCOVE in sw merino/nylon fingering yarn and wool/alpaca/bamboo roving:
