I wanted to get some spring into your hands in time to work it up for the upcoming season. This inspiration photo of a spray of Orchids was just the thing! I had fun working up the bright green and pink, a soft and stronger yellow, and the perfect blue to tie it all together (I erred a bit more toward sky than the teal in the photo….artist’s license….and the color the picture printed out as!).
The fiber is Falkland, one of my favorites, especially when I want to dye clear and pale colors. It’s a great all-around fiber, soft enough, but with a bit of sturdiness, too. Spin as-is back and forth across the colors, or divide up to keep the colors in order….or do your own thing….I can’t wait to see your yarn!
The yarn is Panda, a blend of superwash Merino, Bamboo rayon, and Nylon. It’s quite sturdy, and has enough memory for socks….or a great drape for shawls, scarves, and clothing items. It’d be pretty for baby, too. It’s dyed in the round for longer color repeats, and will likely mini-stripe on socks. It might be fun in a modular type pattern, such as entrelac or domino knitting, diagonal stacking sock like Skew, or shortrowing like Diamondback. Or try stacking the colors by knitting a cowl in the round. Or weave a scarf on your rigid heddle loom! Stop by the Facebook page, or our Ravelry group and show us what you make!
