I love my Birthday shawl! This clever triangular shawl uses knitting on the WS to create the purl ridges. Therefore you only need to purl to maintain the stockinette sections! The stitch pattern is great for showing off hand dyed yarn, and the shape is flattering!
Wear as a shawl or wrap around your neck as a generous scarf. For more info see the pattern page here.
It all started with a ball of yarn. It sparkled and glimmered at me until I would stroke it’s soft alpaca halo. I was hooked after that! Schulana’s Luxair (distributed by Skacel) is currently my all time favorite yarn. I dream of knitting a throw with huge 8 stitch cables all over it. It will be warm, soft, and I’ll never leave the house again if I make it!
Anyway, about the collection. There is four quick knit hats; Adventure, Venture, Embark, and Journey. All of the hats are reversible sans Venture. Adventure, Embark, and Journey finished measurements are: Brims are 17.5” / 45.5cm but it will stretch to fit 23” / 58.5cm, Depths are 8” / 20.5cm. While Venture is a super slouchy with a Depth of 10” / 25.5cm.

400 yards (366 m) of fingering weight. I used Bolinas Sock by Tactile in color Denim. If you get a chance you should check out Maia’s yarns, they are gorgeous! Thank you again Maia for the yarn support, it was so nice meeting you!
I haven’t had much to blog about, until now…presenting, Colorfulpurls first shop update! That’s right, I’m on Etsy! Right now I have just two skeins to test out Etsy. Below are pictures of the skeins along with part of the description that I gave on Etsy.
Yummy lemon yellows, juicy oranges and tart grapefruit are delicious to eat, but even better on yarn!
A close up.
Salty blue water, green seaweed, pink sea stars, purple starfish and seashells are the inspiration behind the colors of this yarn. Everything I love about the beach without sunburns! 😉
As I have been very busy and I’ve also had a little bit of trouble with posting there has been no new postings lately. So, it’s not that I haven’t been knitting or spinning.
Yarn from the Brown Sheep Company! 16 beautiful skeins of yarn! I may have to do close ups later…
This is a lame picture of my amazing(not that I’m bragging) handspun yarn. I started with a raw(unwashed) romney fleece that I washed, dyed with kool-aid, carded and spun. I was aiming for a sock-weight yarn, so much for that, I think this is a heavy-worsted yarn.
I decided to start a cardigan last weekend and I love to make my own patterns and I love cables. I’m knitting the front pieces and the back pieces to avoid excess seaming which I hate.
My pom(pomeranian) loves yarn to. All forms of yarn. Cotton, wool, mohair, acrylic, he loves them all. So, I forget to put away my sweater-in-progress and he had at it. 😦
