What is your current favorite color or color combo?
I love bright, bold colors, and I always find myself drawn toward putting them together in new combinations. I’ve recently added several “electric” dyes to my line up, and they add such a satisfying pop to the items that get knit up with them!
I dye a variety of Inversibles sets, which include two “inversed” striping half-skeins of yarn to create fun matched but mis-matched pairs of socks, mitts or other creations that will showcase the skeins’ oppositeness. Show here, my Autumn Inverisbles, with one autumn orange stripe and one multi-colored autumn speckled stripe.
A favorite winter self-striping colorway with six stripes, Winter’s Wizards, was inspired by Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Wizards in Winter. It’s shown on my Traveler sport weight base.
Socks blanks are fun to dye and fun to knit with…these blanks feature designs created with various resist, handpainted and speckled dye techniques. I offer blanks in yarn bases both with and without sparkle.
I offer kits to knit up several of my own knitwear designs. Shown – Rambler Cowl; Flurry Cowl; Miscellany Hat.
One of my newer self-striping colorways, Seven Deadly Sins, has become a big hit! Shown here on my Bounce base.
