I have been having ever so much fun making new Fallish colorways. Autumn is my season. I love every little thing about it, from the bountiful harvest to the falling of the leaves with all of the colorful changes in between!
Also, being the witchy type of woman that I most certainly am, one of my favorite holidays is part of this season ~ Halloween!!
So I have been at my cauldron of color creating all sorts of hue potions for us to play with. I’m pretty excited about some of these so I hope you like them!
Meet my new color besties…
I will most undoubtedly be adding to this within the next few weeks. We have Hanksgiving and Spooky Specks and I have a Coven series of tinted greys I am working on. So stayed tune for more colors from the crypt.
I am also working on a super fun super simple scarf/cowl design with one of my dyer’s Maggie. We will release this pattern withing the next few weeks. Just in time for Rhinebeck and Holiday knitting. Here’s a sneak peak of the cip (cowl in progress) chilling with some pumpkins. The colorway is Heckley Speckley and the yarn is none other than the super fabulous, serious yummy, Single Silk Targhee. What better way to enjoy an afternoon than to knit with one of your favorite yarns ( don’t want to make the other yarns jealous) in on of your current favorite colorways.
Don’t tell the other colorways but I do not think I have loved a colorway as I do Heckley Speckley since Pond Scum. I want to dye all the yarns and fibers in it. It is really beautiful on Crackpaca too.
We just took this bundle of goodness to Twisted. All kinds of colors of Crackpaca and Super Sparkle. So if you are here for Oregon Flock and Fiber and have not had your fiber fill stop by and get your Sparkle on and squeeze some Crackpaca.
Loopy Ewe is also now carrying Crackpaca!!
My good friend Toni Neil of The Fold is here visiting this weekend and we plan on hitting OFFF on Saturday. Hope it does not rain too hard!! I need to see some fiber friends and pet some sheep and hold a bunny or two!
Toni and I are working on all of our Rhinebeck offerings so if there is something special you’d like to see let me know. Today we are going to make the Special Rhinebeck 2016 colorway which we have never had the chance to do together.
As promised I have added a few new Dye Camp sessions to our roster. I am loving getting back into teaching and plan on doing a whole lot more. So if there is any color or dye theme you would like to see let me know.
I also put up our next Rockin’ Whorl Club offerings. We are going to play with long wools and mohair. Since Wensleydale was my first ever fiber crush ( obsession) I have over the years developed quite an appreciation for the long wools breeds. I hope you will join me as we explore all the history of these breeds and how best to process, dye, spin and knit or weave with them.
Okay I am off to the dye barn to dye all the yarn! To make new seasonal color story and gradient kits ( we might have a KAL with Miss Shannon with these soon) and to tint me some witchy greys!
This dyer is on fire!!!
Have a great weekend!
