2014 Yarn & Fiber Colors – Weeks 24 to 26

Aloha!

Here are the colors for Weeks 24-26 that I posted on the shoppe, www.AlohaBlu.com

This new colorway is AQUARIUM, in sw merino/cashmere/nylon fingering yarn and sw merino/nylon fingering yarn. This colorway used 14 dyes to showcase the bright colors of the fish & coral anchored by the greens and tans of the rocks. This inspirational photo was taken at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific.

An oldie, but a goodie, PAGSANJAN FALLS,  in sw merino/silk fingering yarn, sw merino/nylon fingering yarn and Falkland roving was inspired by this photo I took while on a ‘roaring rapids’ experience in the Philippines!

A new colorway, BRIGHTS, was added to the shoppe in a bright self-striping sw merino/nylon fingering yarn.

More pink yarn! This is WAIMANALO FLOWERS, which I don’t have an inspirational photo for as we were driving through the town of Waimanalo on Oahu and all my photos came out blurry. I guess I’ll need another trip back to get a photo, right? 😉 These pieces are merino/bamboo lace yarn, sw merino fingering yarn, merino/bamboo/nylon roving and targhee roving.

HONOLULU SUNSET 2 is a re-vamp of the original colorway. This time I added more colors in the orange/peach/yellow range.  When we were watching this sunset on Oahu, at one point I was checking the photos on my camera when I heard hubby say “Take this picture, NOW!”. What great timing he has, as the sun was illuminating all the windows on the cruise ship below! These pieces are sw merino/nylon fingering yarn, sw merino/nylon/stellina fingering yarn, polwarth roving and sw merino/nylon roving.

On my birthday this year, hubby took me to a nearby restaurant where I saw a pretty sign for their Happy Hour. When I went to dye it up, I was not impressed with the outcome . . . so, I overdyed it with my favorite color PURPLE! Much happier with these now. Both of these skeins of HAPPY HOUR are fingering weight yarn: one is sw merino/nylon/stellina and the other is 600 yards of sw merino/cashmere/nylon.

SOUTHERN SUMMER SUNSET 2 is another ‘re-vamp’d’ colorway. This time I added blues to the mix! This photo was taken whilst vacationing in beautiful Raleigh, North Carolina.  These pieces are sw merino/nylon fingering yarn in variegated and self-striping, merino/silk/stellina lace yarn, and a small braid of alpaca/merino/silk roving.
