Autumn Forest and Beach Coral

Beach CoralI had fun spinning these two skeins up. The Autumn Forest was spun from fine merino. I blended lime green, orange,yellow with a little bit of blue, this made the green come up a bit darker and look more earthy. I then spun up some bright orange silk which I spun it thick and thin and then plyed the two together which gave it a real funky but regal look. This skein is so soft and would look great knitted up or felted.

The Beach Coral reminds me of a paddle pop ice cream, but my husband said its like coral, so he has named this one. The blue is very summery. I blended yellow, bright pink, mauve and blue together and then spun up some bright blue silk to ply with. I almost want to keep this myself  just to see what it will look like knitted up. Even though the silk is bright, its not too much, it just makes the other shades dance. This is also very soft to the skin.

This weekend it meant to be really warm so I might get into some felting.

Have a great weekend and I wish you all heaps of inspiration

Cheers
