Debbie in KY & Sarah

Congratulations! Please contact me at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com to collect your prizes.



I ran across some of the most beautiful semi-solid yarn yumminess recently, appropriately named Sweet Fiber Yarns. And, I just knew that I had to find a way to get the yarn on the blog to share with you. I contacted the owner and genius behind Sweet Fiber Yarns, Melissa, and she so willing obliged to coming here on the blog today to share with you her story and beautiful yarns:



sweetfiberbutton


1. Please start by telling us a little bit about yourself and what you do?

I am twenty-three years old and I live on the south west coast of beautiful British Columbia. This past May I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (majoring in visual arts) from the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver, BC. There I spent five years studying all sorts of creative things - painting, colour theory, printmaking and art history to name a few. Now that school is done I look forward to spending more time working with Sweet Fiber Yarns and expanding our list of retailers. You can also find me working part time at my mom's yarn shop.

2. Your hand dyed yarns are just so sweet! Can you talk a little bit about what inspires you?

Thank you Veronika! My inspiration comes from the colour relationships I take notice of throughout my daily life. I make mental notes of how they look together, how they change beside one another and the conversations they create amongst one another.

3. Do you have a favorite colorway or yarn that you offer?

Tough question! I can honestly say there isn't a single Sweet Fiber colourway that I don't completely love. As for yarns, if I had to choose one right now it would be Heirloom, hands down. A girl can't go wrong with silk cashmere!

4. How did you get into yarn dyeing?

I began dyeing yarn in my spare time (aka while procrastinating) during second year of university with the encouragement of my family, co-workers and friends at the yarn shop. Being a lys worker and having the opportunity to work with so many beautiful hand dyed yarns from all over the world has really inspired me to combine my passion for colour and love of luxury yarns. Since ECUAD does not have a fibre arts program I taught myself and learned through trial and error. Looking back I'm really glad I had the opportunity to experiment on my own, it gave me a chance to develop my own techniques and establish my own take on the process. Like any fine art, dyeing yarn requires both a feel for and understanding of all the working parts of the process and once you have those, anything is possible.

5. What will be next for you? Do you have yarns or colorways in the works that you can share with us?

What's next for me? Fibre shows! I will be attending Knit City in October and Stitches West 2013 next February. Up until now I've been pretty busy with school and haven't had the chance to really get out there and share my yarns with the world. I can't wait!

6. I always like to ask, why do you knit?

I love the entire process of knitting - the rhythm, the texture, the transformation of materials and the way it opens your mind and allows it to wander through thoughts and ideas you wouldn't otherwise have time for. Knitting is how I relax and unwind and I'm grateful that something so simple can bring me so much pleasure.

7. When did you learn to knit and who taught you?

I learned to knit in 2007 after graduating highschool. During this time my mom opened a yarn shop (88 Stitches) so I thought I'd better learn! With help from my mom and Judy Marples (Purl Bumps) I learned to knit quite quickly and haven't stopped since. YouTube has been a big help too ;)

8. If you were to knit and live anywhere in the world, where would you knit and live?

I wouldn't trade here for anywhere else in the world. British Columbia is such a beautiful place to live and has great knitting weather too!

9. What's been your worst knitting or in your case it could be a yarn dyeing disaster?

There's been a few days where I've had zombie hands thanks to some blue-green dye mishaps. I don't often get dye on myself, but when I do it's often a disaster!

10. And last but not least, if you were enjoying a favorite drink while reading my blog, what would it be?

An iced passion tea lemonade....mmmm!


Melissa's yarns are just SWEET - just like their name implies! She has sent over 14 skeins of her lovely yarn for you to have a chance at winning!! That's right, FOURTEEN skeins! Check it out:

I LOVE these yarns -- must be my "sweet tooth"! her

My favorite is probably Hippolyta -- but Alizarin is gorgeous, too.

LindsayJoy said...

Wow! The colors! I love alizarin and something blue... Oh and tangerine and Spanish coin!!

Thanks for showing me some new yummy yarn!

Fiona said...

Fabulous! Beautiful colours. Now I'm even more excited to go to KnitCity in October!

I particularly love Abyss, Spirit and Black Currant.

October Rose said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway! My favorite is Spirit. :)

Kara said...

I love the Spanish Coin - I've been wanting to knit something luxurious in a golden yellow yarn like that! I also love so many of the blues - Alice and Moonstone and Fountain are all gorgeous.

Amber said...

Seriously, how am I supposed to choose a favourite!!!?

I'm usually a semi-solid girl (which is why I find it hard to choose a single, or even couple, favourite colourways of these, they are all so gorgeous), but I really love the look of the Lolli Socks - particularly the Wicked Sour or Cherry Bomb.

Amanda Hume said...

I love Hard Candy. It is perfect!

marianne said...

oh my! they're all so gorgeous! I'm especially taken with the Tarnish colorway.

Liz said...

Seastorm is awesome.l.and I love Ina's red!!

Debbie said...

Too hard to choose! Chartreuse, Amethyst, Lime, Abyss -- love the colors, love the names, love the yarn!

Ohh, her yarns are gorgeous aren't they! I've tried her Cashmerino Sock, and it was luscious. My favourite colourway has to be Moonstone.

Cheryl

Alex said...

Oh wow, thanks for introducing me, her stuff is gorgeous! I think I like Tarnish and Fossil best, but I'm pretty in love with all the neutralish ones.

mommieof4munchkins said...

It won't surprise you that Bloom is my FAV but something blue is a close second! I adore all of her yarns! LOVE LOVE LOVE and those stitch markers are super cute too. :)

affiknity said...

I love Spiced Pumpkin and Spanish Coin. All her colorways are gorgeous. And how generous of her to offer so many skeins for YOTH readers!

Sylvie said...

The neons aren't really my thing, but all the other colorways are spectacular - I love the subtlety of the tones. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I really like Fossil, Hippolyta, and Luna.

Sheila said...

So many beautiful colors! I think Envy is my favorite, but black currant, teal and amethyst are all close seconds.

KRHknitting said...

I like the Black Currant colorway. Your yarns are beautiful!
KRHknittng on Ravelry

meppybn said...

Love to try these new-to-me yarns - and black currant is calling me!!

Jessica Snell said...

Envy! I'm a sucker for deep, bright greens, and that's a lovely one.

Andrea said...

Ohhh Spanish Coin is perrrrfect!

GeneticsGirl said...

They're all beautiful, but I really like the Sapphire colourway!

Anonymous said...

I love the Spirit colorway!

-cheryl23

Susan said...

Ooooooo . . . so many beautiful colors to pick. I recently stubbled onto this yarn and am so glad I did. My current favorite is Every Grey, but there are some epic reds that are on my must-have list. :)

Quiltgirl said...

Oh - they are all so nice. But I'm on a hunt for the perfect golden colour - so I'm loving the Spanish coin!

April R. said...

Oh my goodness! What absolutely AMAZING colorways... it is so hard to pick!! I gues I would have to go with Spanish Coin or Hippolyta.

indigocraft said...

Hi, my favourite hands down is Spanish Coin. Such a beautiful golden yellow!

Gaile said...

I have to admit I'm not new to her yarns, I have a few skeins stashed! My favourites so far have been the beautiful grays and her deep blues. BUT lately I've been longing for pastels for summer so I'd have to say my new favourites are Something Blue and Alice. And her stitch markers are awesome too btw!

ElinH said...

My favorite Sweet Fibres colorway is Inas red, closely followed by Paper Birch. It is hard to pick favorites when you love almost every single color..!

Cary Fremin said...

My favorite sweet fiber color is a toss up between hippolyta and verve. I recently bought a couple skeins of each. So beautiful and full of depth. The kicker to the whole package was the beautiful smell of the yarn. It is a complete sensory experience to open a sweet fiber package from the feel, to what they look like, and the way they smell.

Knitmish on Ravelry said...

I love Melissa's yarns! I have had the pleasure to work with some of her yarn, and it's great. Of course I'd love some more :) I cannot decide on one colourway, it's pretty much impossible. Currently I love Ina's Red, though- so rich!

tibialmusician said...

Lovely stuff! I Can't decide which I love more Hippolyta or Bloom though I find myself thinking about a combination of Hippolyta and Spanish Coin...hmmm

Martianit said...

Hard choice, but I think I'll o with Amber Briolette. Love how 'textured' the colours look.

Betty said...

I have had the good fortune to purchase a sweet fiber yarn before :)
and I love the blues / teals....particularly luna!!

Melody said...

I like Ina's Red. All are pretty.

Tiamoe92 said...

Do I have to pick only one? Ina's red and Alice both speak to me regularly.

Floderten said...

I can't pick just one - Spanish Coin, Tea Leaves and Driftwood are my favourites!!

Anna said...

such a tough question :) besides for all the greys I particularly like luna. I have been so keen to try sweet fiber yarn, thanks for hosting a giveaway

Mary in VA said...

I've only recently discovered her yarns in joining a club, but I was very happy with my first shipment. Since I'm going through an orange phase, I think I'll vote for tangerine, even though all her greys are gorgeous.

Mycenia said...

Chartreuse! I found Sweet Fiber solely because of that colorway. It's so vibrant and beautiful.

Debra said...

Sea Storm. Abyss. Alizarin. Blackcurrant. (Life is too short to pick just one.)

Vanessa said...

Wow, this is a tough one. Alizarin, or Teal?

Julie said...

Oh I'm lurking on those yarns for a while now! I think spirit and paper birch are awesome!

fridica said...

Spanish coin!

Amanda said...

Tough question! Let's say... Amber Briolette. Or Bruin. Or Seastorm...

Rachelle said...

Ina's Red is one of my favourites

Jade said...

There's so many pretty colours, it's hard to pick just one, but I do love these ones - Smoky Lilac, Ever Grey and Alice.

lynn said...

I love all of the colorways but Ina's Red is my favorite.

Unknown said...

This is hard! Will have to day bruin....with Hippolyta and verve right up there ;))

amchart said...

I'm always drawn to colors like Black Currant, and I've always wanted to try a colorway like Hard Candy. Thanks for the sweet intro, Ve! Rav amchart

Stranded Things said...

Oh. My. I *love* every single one of those colorways! So delicious! Too hard to pick a favorite, but especially Sea Storm, Hippolyta and Amber Briolette gave me the grabby hands syndrome. And Tea Leaves! And Abyss! *Swoon*

masshag said...

Spirit jumped out at me. I also like the pink.green sock yarn. All of the yarn is beautiful!

Beathag said...

wow wow wow!
Such generosity! That's what I love in the knitting community!
My favorite is Alizarin colorway

craftink on ravelry

wildmag said...

today's its Amber Briolette, but tomorrow it could be nocturnelle.. and the day after... all GORGEOUS colors.

Evelyn said...

What a fantastic interview. I loved learning more about Sweet Fiber. Now for my rave color ... Black Cuurant. It's yummy!

ProjectstashEL on Ravelry

Holly said...

They're all fantastic, but I especially love Alizarin!

Zenitude (formerly Wooly Knits n Bits) said...

I love Ina's Red. These are great colorway names!

jacey said...

I love the Bloom colourway, but the Lolli sock yarns also caught my eye -- especially Sour Watermelon, what fun it would be to knit with!!

Ely said...

I love the Spanish Coin. It would be perfect for a honey-comb pattern!

Erin said...

Ooh, Hippolyta! Or maybe Tea Leaves! Olive is super pretty, too.

I love semisolids.

mary_me_a_little said...

I love these yarns--especially the "heirlooms". As for my favorite color, it's a tossup between Verve & Ina's Red...Guess, I'd have to pick Ina's Red (it's perfect!)

sparkeespud said...

Wow, another great indie dyer! I have to pick one??? I like the something blue I think the best right now.

dgilleesmith2 said...

Has to be Amethyst - I'm a purple girl!

Sal said...

Whoo-hoo... I love Ina's Red and Seastorm!

Christine Lima said...

Ina's Red!!! A nice, rich, real RED!!! How could you not love it??

Kelly said...

I love the spanish coin and the charcoal!

Nidhi said...

What gorgeous colors! Love Hippolyta and Alizarin:)

Pennster said...

I love Sweet Fiber Yarns! I love her Lolli Socks as well. Being from BC as well & moving to Ladner (close to Langley), 1st on my "to do" list is to visit 88 Stitches. I love Paper Birch, such a beautiful name.

jennybookworm said...

WOW! Nice work - I love love love Ina's Red - took my breath away and that's on the screen! I also really liked Cherry Bomb in the sock yarn. Thanks for introducing me to a great Canadian dyer!!

susanj said...

What a great interview! I LOVE Melissa's yarns. Right now I've got Avery sport on the needles and it is beautiful! My favorite colorway is probably Tea Leaves, but I do love Fossil and the others as well. I can't wait to try her Heirloom! Thank you!

Kassia said...

Lovely yarns!! My favorite colorway is Alizarin but oh.my.gosh. all are gorgeous!

beautiful colors, but since I'm only choosing 1 (this time) it'll have to be Amber Briolette

evan said...

i'm definitely in love with the spanish coin and spirit colourways!

Kristen said...

The Spiced Pumpkin and Ina's Red are both gorgeous!

Karen said...

Ever Grey and Spirit are my favourites. Though there are many gorgeous colours.

oforney said...

Nocturnelle and Luna are both amazing colorways...it was so hard to pick though!

katherinelynn_04 said...

LOVE the purples, but I'm going to have to go with Chartreuse. It's a color you don't see done well often (it usually doesn't have much variegation or any interest to it), but rs just gorgeous with those pops of yellow!

Rachael said...

These are absolutely gorgeous! I love Paper Birch and Ever Grey.

historychica said...

All the colors are so gorgeous! I'm especially digging Hippolyta and Sapphire.

Gracey is not my name.... said...

Spanish Coin was the color that caught my eye in the picture, but also like Black Currant and Ina's Red. Also liked Spirit...

Gina said...

All of those colors are just gorgeous, but I think Spanish Coin is my favorite. Lovely!

Kamigaeru said...

Le sigh, definitely charcoal. I can't help that I love gray so much, but some of the greens are lovely as well...

franchement (on ravelry) said...

Oh my! What a wonderful giveaway! And what wonderful yarn!!! I particularly like luna!

Nadine said...

Hippolyta, hands down. I could see this made up in "Ravi". Could you?

becca said...

I love Fossil and Black Emerald and Spirit and Black Currant and Abyss and Smoke. What gorgeous, rich, amazing colors!

Renee Anne said...

Mmmmm.......yarn.

Spirit on Heirloom
Amethyst on Sweet Merino Lite
Fountain on Sweet Merino Lite
Sour Watermelon on Cashmerino Sock
Wicked Sour on Super Sweet Sock

I could go on and on.....

Nena said...

Oh no another yarn to fall in love with! I'd like to knit something up in Tarnish.

Sangeetha said...

Love amber briolette, but all the colors are gorgeous

Jen said...

This is basically an impossible question, but right now I keep going back to Envy.

Gynx said...

My favorite is Tarnish!

JodyH said...

My favorites were Alizarin and Seastorm, but I love that she offers so many shades of blue!

Jennifer Larson said...

My favorite of her colors is probably fountain, but I also adore Ina's Red, and charcoal.

vasterblue said...

I love the tea leaves colorway.

Lynn said...

All the colors - how can one choose? Melissa makes beautiful colors for every mood! Alizarin, Ina's Red, Spirit, and Verve are my current faves.

Sabrina said...

O my goodness! I love just about every colorway. This yarn is totally gorgeous! If I have to chose, I would say Tea Leaves, Ina's Red, & Envy.

terip said...

Wow those colors are gorgeous. Blue is my favorite color but I am really digging that Spanish coin color!

Annali said...

They're all so pretty but my favorite is Something Blue. Its the perfect color to knit with in the summertime!

asteride said...

Abyss, Seastorm, Sapphire and Hippolyta. They are truly beautiful!

ThatCleverClementine said...

I think my beloved Paper Birch has been bested by Hippolyta!

Ms.Curdy said...

I totally love the teal on cashmerino.. WOW!

Christina said...

All of them?

But I think Ever Grey is an amazing color, and Spanish Coin catches my eye everytime I see it.

Rilka said...

WOW!! all the yarn is sooo pretty. I want it all!! My favorite ones are: Spanish Coin, Tea Leaves, and Ever Grey.oh and Bloom.

Laura said...

I've been dying to try Sweet Fiber yarns for a while now. My favorite colorway might be Alice. But they're all beautiful, and so rich!

beadknits said...

I have had the pleasure of being in two of Melissa's clubs. Love the yarn, and her play with colors. There are no certain colors that grab me, but I am very partial to her colored grays. Melissa, keep up the awesome work, it is appreciated!

nina said...

Oh, can't choose just one. I love Black Currant, Verve, and Abyss. I'd been looking forward to seeing Melissa's yarns at Knit Social since being introduced to her etsy shop by a friend, but would love to see it even sooner! :-)

Rebekah said...

Great colors! Even though I'm hardly a brown person, I'm digging that Bruin. That Smokey Lilac calls for me to nuzzle it though. :)

Lindr said...

These are so pretty! I love the 'grittiness' of the colors. Since you make me choose a favorite, I'll choose 'Moonstone'. I'm not usually attracted to blues, but this one's really pretty.

knit1yoga2 said...

I love Melissa's yarn especially Avery Sport and Heirloom. Pick only one? That's tough. I love Hippolyta but Envy, Alice, Fountain, Something in Blue and Ina's Red are all gorgeous too.

Enid said...

Do I have to choose just one? I'm not sure that's possible. I really like Nocturnelle. But have plenty of back-up choices.

Megan said...

WOW very generous giveaway! I would have a hard time picking a colorway I didn't like! LOVE LOVE LOVE times a million ENVY. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Teri said...

I'm loving Hippolyta, but Sapphire is goregous.

Brigette said...

I love sweet fiber! My favorite color has to be spirit. But I also love hippolyta and spanish coin. Adore this yarn!!

knittingforus said...

I love the Nocturnelle!

Crazyfabulous said...

I fell in love with sweet fiber yarns the first time I saw them - I've become somewhat obsessed now... SO hard to pick a favourite, but I'm working with amber briolette right now and I keep pausing to admire it lol

Jody said...

My favorite is Ina's Red.

ChrisC said...

Wow! That basket of yarn is STUNNING! Spanish Coin is my favorite color. It's so rich and cozy-looking! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

Sheree said...

I have a skein of Shipwreck (a greyish blue/green) at home that I'm trying to pick the perfect project for. I love the grey-leaning tones in many of her colors, and can't just pick one :)

Kristina said...

They are ALL beautiful! I love Fountain.

Dorothy said...

I think my favorite is probably Ina's Red, but it's very difficult to choose. My 3YO son says he loves some Something Blue.

Heather said...

I'm torn between Ina's Red and Noctournelle as my favorites, but Hippolyta is up there too. And Tea Leaves. And Amber Briolette.

I can never pick favorite colors, and these are all gorgeous! I was lucky to narrow it down to 5!

girl twins 2005 said...

I love the Spanish Coin, or Something Blue, although they are all simply stunning.

Ridgely Schantz said...

I think with Envy, Melissa set the new standard for "green". As in "nailed it." So definitely Envy.

Tanya said...

I have Ina's red and Fountain and Hippolyta at home. I love so many others. I am jonesing for some Moonstone on sport right now. :)

skeller said...

Sweet Fiber is getting incredible recommendations from all my Yarn Hoar peeps, and I can't wait to try it! I am loving the greys and browns, so Fossil is probably my fave.

shellyk said...

I think my favorite is the paper birch, I love those subtle shades of gray!!

Laura said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway! I have never seen these yarns and would love to try them out. It is really hard to pick just one color. In no specific order I love Tea Leaves, Bruin, Spirit, Abyss and Sea Storm. Oh and lots of others too!

KC said...

Spanish Coin! So pretty.

Debbie said...

My fav color is Tangerine. Thanks!

Lael said...

I like the Fountain (all of her blues and purples are nice!) and the Bruin, but would be thrilled to win any of the featured colors!

Melissa said...

I absolutely LOVE Sweet Fiber yarns, but have yet to knit with any!! How sad is that? That basket of yarn is gorgeous! I would have to say that my favourite colour is Ever Grey, but l keep looking and seeing Hippolyta and it's definitely intriguing me!

Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

nancy88 said...

Something Blue, hands down! Sure would go nice with the Teal... hmmmm... :)

Kate said...

Wow, so generous! They all look so lovely, but I was drawn to amber briolette.

Anonymous said...

A very close tie between Spanish Coin and Bloom! Come to think of it, those two colours would look amazing side by side :)

I'm a British Columbian too, so glad to see our province getting some attention! Yay!

fireant01 said...

Rasa said...

Soooo many beautiful choices...1) Amber Briolette, 2) Tea Leaves, 3) Ina's Red...I could go on, but I'll stop there!!!

PenCraft said...

Some seriously gorgeous colors! Ever Grey and Spirit just jumped off the page to me, but not a one I don't like!

setinink said...

Spanish coin is like the perfect yellow color-- I have been looking for yarn in that shade for ages.

ikkinlala said...

I like almost all of them (except maybe the neon ones), but I think my favourite is Spirit.

Anonymous said...

Something Blue is very similar to Tiffany Blue- it's gorgeous. It's definitely my favorite!!

Jamie: Ravelry- cheerski

Rachel said...

I absolutely love all of them, but Spanish Coin jumps out at me because it's so unusual to find a really perfect, wearable yellow. Gorgeous!

sparky136 said...

My favorite colorway is spiced pumpkin.

Vikki said...

I love the Moonstone....thank you for sharing this, I cannot wait to try thise beautiful yarn!

NimrodVern said...

Bruin is my fave Sweetfiber colorway! It would be such a beautiful shawl!

kayteau said...

Oh my! Gorgeous, and impossible to pick just one. Abyss, Tarnished, Tea Leaves, Verve... all amazing.

And I really need another indi Canadian dyer to fall for!

Nina said...

Oh my goodness, Bloom is just gorgeous! So vivid!

rsrinstructor on ravelry said...

I like Alice on avery sport and Cherry Bomb on Super Sweet Sock, pretty wild! =) I'm rsrinstructor on ravelry

Orli said...

It's a toss-up for me between Hippolyta and Seastorm--two such gorgeous, vibrant colorways! Yum!

Judi A. said...

If there has to be a favoirie, it has to be pink = Bloom on Heirloom. A close second, though,is Something Blue on Avery Sport. Lots of other pretty colors, too - I like them all!

Nena said...

I would have to choose Tarnish. They're all so beautiful!

brsmaryland said...

How to pick just one?! Tea Leaves is really different and her play on grays is very interesting too.
Thanks!

I love amber briolette! Oranges aren golds are really speaking to me right now.

Juliaknit said...

I would have to pick the color way Spirit. It is beautiful!

butnostephanie said...

Winter or Smoke... such pretty greys!

collegeknitting said...

OMG- I love Ina's Red and Envy. They're so fantastic! Thanks for the awesome give-away.

InJuneau said...

All SO beautiful, but I think Seastorm is my favorite.

cynthialeigh said...

All so lovely! I love Fossil.
thanks

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

There were several non-blue colorways trying to lead me astray, but I stayed loyal and chose Seastorm.

Sara said...

You really expect me to pick a favorite??

Spanish Coin caught my eye immediately...

And, Cherry Bomb is just gorgeous for socks - especially since my high school colors were red and black...

Deserat said...

Ooh - a give-away - I like Seastorm - great yarns, for sure

jamielw said...

The purples are great!

Reikjavyk said...

It's Ina's Red. No, wait. It's Seastorm. No, Fountain. Did I say Black Currant? Excuse me, what was the question again? ^.^

Nolita said...

Well that was torture just picking out one, but I guess it will be Seastorm. Thanks for the giveaway!

Amanda M. said...

Spanish Coin! It GLOWS. So lovely.

yarrrnmatey said...

Abyss abyss abyss!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sgbooth88 said...

I absolutely love the tangerine and the teal colorways, then again my two favorite colors are orange and teal so it makes sense. Although I have to say every last one of her colors are simply gorgeous

Heather said...

That spiced pumpkin just sings to me!!!

Moonstone jumped right out at me. So pretty!

meeshelle said...

I just LOVE all the rich colours, so fantastic I want to knit them all!! If I had to choose a favorite it would be Spanish Coin, it's gorgeous!

Nancy Hopkins said...

Oh WOW, an opportunity to own and knit some Sweet Fiber Yarn has got me dizzy silly ......The conservative side (most of me) of me loves all the greys....charcoal, smoke and the great driftwood. (Maybe driftwood wins my heart because I live on Cape Cod & the Sydney northern beaches !!) But the wild and crazy dise loves Teal !!!
All gorgeous no matter how you wind 'em !

Lots of lovely, saturated colorways! At the moment, I'll choose Verve as my favorite. (sjn821 on Rav)

Ohmygosh, these are such gorgeous saturated colors! Black Currant and Winter are my favorites.

Angela said...

The neutrals are all lovely but I'm drawn to the Chartreuce!

Carey said...

oh I am loving Smoke!! They are all beautiful colors though

Rae Lynne said...

Wow - what a great giveaway!

I'd have to say may favorites are the blues and greens, but I'm particularly drawn to Spirit, Abyss and Seastorm...and then Ina's Red (I don't usually go for red but this is beautiful!)

Envy just leaped off the screen. Such a gorgeous green.

Gwenn said...

How do you choose? Abyss is definitely a front runner though.

rockbridge said...

Spirit! Spirit, spirit, spirit. And Luna.

Kristen said...

I definitely can't choose a favorite but the one that is catching my eye TODAY is Chartreuse.

Oh my! all of these are beautiful, but a few of my favs are Amber Briolette, Black Currant, and Alizarin. Gorgeous!
