Summer is coming...maybe?

Actually, at this point I'd be happy to wake up and find that the temperature indicator on my phone says something other then zero degrees! It's been a truely craptastic spring so far, so I've been putting up more and more warm, bright colors into the shop in protest.

Pink Lemonade Texel

First up is Pink Lemonade, on Texel - this colorway makes me nostalgic for long, hazy summer days where all you want to do is laze about basking in the sun. Hopefully more of those days are in store for us this summer - there's got to be some payback for a March and April that are more wintery then December!

Exponential Monet Falklands

Then there's Exponential Monet, inspired by Les Nympheas (Waterlillies). Only the colors in this version have been turned up to eleven. This colorway is done on some lovely soft Falklands wool, that would be perfect for a snuggly cowl or cozy scarf. It would also be fabulous as some long fingerless mitts to keep your hands warm in this "transitional" season.

Finally, we've got fMRI on BFL. fMRI (or functional magnetic resonance imaging) is one of those scientific techniques that completely blows my mind. Still, 25 years after MRI became a thing, the fact that you can take pictures of someone's brain and use the dipole moment of water to determine which areas are more or less active during a particular event makes me go squee! with happy geek glee. The colors in this make me squee! with happy dyeing glee too, and make me long for a couple of chain plied skeins to knit up into some fantastic socks.

So that's this month's update - my attempt to banish cold, grey spring from my psyche. You can find all these fibers and more in the shop, so grab some color to ward off the 2013 "Spring" gloom!

 

Happy spinning,

Rachel
