The most current handpainted yarns I have been working on are a blend of 40% silk/60% kid mohair (a laceweight yarn) and a beautiful silk boucle. The inspiration for these pastel hues is the sea and its environs. There will be lilacs, sea glass, corals, sea grasses, pale yellows and aquas. I hope to have these available through my very favorite yarn shop, La Petite Knitterie in Ladera Ranch, the first week of March. (www.lapetiteknitterie.com) Here is just a sampling of these yarns, the corals and pale yellows. These will be wonderful for the renewed enthusiasm in lace knitting. Also, they are a great compliment to the new cashmere/silk yarns that our friend, Melissa Sheppard, has just brought in to La Petite Knitterie.
As part of this blogging experience, I hope to have a link to fibers and yarns that I will have for sale from time to time, but that will be for another day. My hand now trembles, as I go for the "publish" button. Was I successful in my first posting? I hope so.
