Deep Plum Colour

File 2017-09-19, 10 49 49 AMPerfect for this fall Season is this deep Purple plum colour.

I could think of many projects to knit up…if my time would allow it.

Special Order for Carla A. Canonico of
“A Needle Pulling Thread” and KNITmuch. 
Carla told me she loves her purples and is looking forward to seeing the once I have dyed for her.

“It has to be the right purple”

I believe it is the one just like the Italian dark Plums. The one we can find in most grocery stores in the past view weeks.
So here are a view skeins dyed and drying up in the last week of summer. Truly love how beautiful they look in the sunshine

Ecuador Cardigan

 DSC04376  Ecuador Cardigan

 Is this amazing pattern by Joji Locatelli.
You can use so many fun yarns for this cardigan. A swinging fun summer evening cardigan or an all around great Fall cardigan. But who is to says you have to add sleeves to it!?2013-07-13 20.50.33
I knit this one with no sleeves for a swinging vest and it looks fabulous too
Though for this carding  I used Malabrigo Yarn Sock   …in colour 863 Zarzamora
 Have a look at all there other great yarns from Malabrigo one of my favours
As soon as I was finished knitting it for one of our customers the yarn sold like hot cakes…Surely my boss likes this. With only 4 skeins so about 1760 yards or 1609 meters of it.
Oh I could tell you another great yarn for this “Dye Hard Fibre Arts” available at “The Yarn Store.ca” the sock weight possibly or even the Dk weight if you like to make it more of a warmer winter cardigan.
I have my next one already on the needle

 Ein tolles Muster von Joji Locatelli.
Du kannst es mit  so viele schönen Wollen und Garnen stricken. Ein schwingender Spaß  für ein schöner Sommerabend oder eine rundherum tolle Herbst Strickjacke.
Aber wer sagt das Du dazu lange Ärmeln stricken must!?2013-07-19 14.15.50
Ich strickte dieses Muster ohne Ärmel für einen schwingende Weste und es sieht auch fantastisch aus.
Doch für diese Jacke brauchte ich 4 Kneuel “Malabrigo Yarn Sock” in der Farbe 863 Zarzamora  http://www.malabrigoyarn.com/
DSC04377Sobald ich fertig war mit der Jacke die für eine Kundin war…wurde auch die Wolle schnell verkauft.
Hier noch ein paar andere  Wollen die sich für diese Jacke eignen: “Dye Harte Fibre Arts” die nur wir im verkauf haben  “The Yarn Store.ca”
