New Colors!

Well, here they are in all their glory! All 4 new colorways and I have to say they aren't how I intended for them to be.... But, that happens a lot with dyeing right? The one that stands out the most "interesting" is Caves & Crystals, its the one with pink, purple and black... The shades were suppose to be pastel-ish and a silver tone... But it ended up kind of dark and twisted... I do have to say that I am falling in love with it. You know a face that only a mother can love ;) I really do think it is going to make some RADICAL SOCKS! The dark green and brown is hard to see but it's really nice, trust me on this one! Great mens socks!

So can you tell I am justifying my failure of concept? Really they are all beautiful but , my favs are still in the first four. Wtih out further delay I present Forest, Caves & Crystals, rivers, and Ice & Snow:


here is a new batch of the last four colorways :



I made many in each color so I don't have to dye for a couple of weeks. I better come up with more ideas! I already have a huge list.... Solids are up high on it;)Take care, I plan to knit up some stuff this week and catch up on reading my blogs! I am sorely overdue!!!!!!

Congratulations and long life for your new passion and commercial venture. I haven't been reading my favourite blogs for a long time and I'm delighted to find yours so full of new things. I'll be sure to try one of your beautiful skeins of yarn once my finances perk up.
