I like "Spin a Perfect Sock Top / Roving - 6 oz kit handpainted colorway "Little Lambs Eat Ivy" BFL Kid"

I love the Hawaiian Orchid and Sonoma in Fall color ways! So pretty, and the fiber content is wonderful!

I love the Detective Superintendant Hannasyde of Scotland Yard colorway. I remember spinning my sample and loving it. The merino sock yarn would make some amazing winter socks (I only wear socks in the house in winter - we're in Florida, what can I say).

Midnight bells drew my eye right to it! So pretty!

"I Know Too Much About Miss Beulah Birtley" BFL Kid is a colorway I've been trying to get right for a few weeks. How very gorgeous, so much nicer than any I've managed so far.

I love the Sea Shell colorway of her sock yarn.

The "Lichen" colorway didn't make me so much think of lichen as fields that are almost ripe, but still contain a hint of green.

Marilyn a.k.a. Merry said...

Love the harvest squash colorway in the sock yarn.

I really like the colors in the Merino Sock Yarn-New Artisan Sock 3 ply in the Harvest Squash. They remind me of fall colors. I think it would make a beautiful fall shawl.

My goodness! I absolutely love the Kido Lame Sparkling Laceweight Kid Mohair yarn in Gavin Plenmuller Writes Detective Stories. So gorgeous and perfect for that special New Year's Eve or holiday project.

Zabelle said...

I am a huge fan of the carded rovings she offers. I love batts, but often have trouble when trying to section them off for spinning, so to me carded roving is the perfect answer, like batt-roving for ease of spinning.

I like the queen sonja fingerless mitts kit. It would be a great small project to learn color work.
