2013 Yarn & Fiber Colors – Weeks 6-7

Aloha! Here are the colors and inspirational images for weeks 6-7.

I’ll start with a new colorway inspired by the upcoming movie, Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2. We had a write-up last month in USA Today and it talked a bit about our food creatures. This colorway is called FLAMANGOES (cross between a flamingo and a mango), in corriedale cross roving and merino/nylon fingering yarn:

Based on the inspirational photo created by the many talented artists I get the privilege of working with. The flamangoes are on the bottom right corner.

For Christmas last year, I dyed up some silk & velvet cut scarves and gave them away as gifts. Of course, I made one for myself first to test the process :).  I loved how the scarves turned out so I made more for the shoppe:

This scarf has a rose motif in raspberry:

This floral scarf is in pretty blue/teal:

I love how the daisies pop on this bright orange scarf with a black background:

And my favorite combination of color – this is a bouquet motif scarf in purple with a black background:

I also dyed up this skein of merino/bamboo/nylon fingering weight:
