On June 4, 2012, in yarn, by Anna

It’s summer and I guess I must be in the mood for some colourful shawls.  And as you all know, colourful shawls start with colourful yarn.

Just a week and a half ago, I got this wonderful package from Hazel Knits:

The left skein is divine in the colour way Carnelian, and the right skein is piquant lite in the colour way hoppy blonde.  The divine yarn (which really lived up to its name, by the way) has already been knit up into a new shawl design.

I also got a delightful package from Tanis Fiber Arts containing the following beauties:

That’s two skeins of red label cashmere/silk single in orange blossom and poppy that will be combined into a new design.

Do you notice a common theme here?  Orange.  I don’t know how that happened.  Maybe there’s something in the air?  But in any case, I’m getting ready for some happy, orange knitting!
