Cappuccino, Sorbet, Sanibel

Here are some colorways that have made it into the shop lately:

CAPPUCCINO
This is a 4-ply yarn (light fingering weight) with a yardage of 480 yds/100 gr. The colors change gradually from light beige to medium to dark brown - just like a cup of coffee into which you slowly pour milk...

Then there is SORBET.
Another 4-ply yarn available in 100 gr skeins (480 yds). This one is really yummy: colors change from a mauve/strawberry-red to lemon yellow to lime green. Looking at this color makes me want to head to the next ice cream store. I don't have a swatch to show yet but a shawl is in the works. Pictures coming soon.

And here is SANIBEL.
It has been a few years since I last visited Sanibel Island, FL and the place might have changed by now, but somehow these colors reminded me of that cute little island. This colorway is available as 50 gr skeins (240 yds/50 gr); it is also a light fingering weight 4-ply yarn. A swatch is in my to do-queue... :)

  1. You're right about the coloring for Sanibel. Those colors remind me of the water colors and color of the sky, just before sunrise. :) And, those are my favorite colors.
