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:
Another LIGURE SUNSET 2 in merino/tencel roving:
And some bamboo roving in blue-green, lavender/blue-green and light blue-green :

Those scarves are amazing! Love the purple and the blue/teal. Sigh……=D
