The studio is seriously oozing with colour. I finished dyeing the March Fibre Club this past week and it looks like a million gummy worms have taken over the studio. I love that. AND, I’m in love with this handspun merino/silk yarn. I spun it to worsted-weight and it looks like there is 50g of the greens and 75g of the reds. I am so tempted to spin more of this fibre and weave a humongous merino+silk blanket to live in.
And I’m so excited to present this series of semi-solid colourways for the SweetGeorgia sock yarns as a dye-to-order series. Available in the Superwash Sock or the slightly thicker, Superwash Sport, we’ll be dyeing as many skeins of these colours as you like. Over time, I’m looking to expand the series and also add back our more variegated colourways. I know that knitters want what they want when they want it, so I’m hoping to provide this option to many of you.
As for the colours, I think I was subliminally inspired by the Visit Mexico campaign that has been omnipresent in Vancouver buses. I’ve never been to Mexico, but my love for fish tacos seems to make me think I might like it.
