Just a quick posting about what I'm currently knitting. I'm working with a superfine (i.e. a very high grade) alpaca yarn in some rich, heathered colors. I ordered this yarn back in the spring and I'm not quite sure what I had in mind at the time. I might be using some paler, more wintery shades if I were to choose them now. But because I live in Mexico and sell my work here, as well as online, most people here expect bright colors. Perhaps that's what I was thinking.
Above is a sneak peak of what I will soon have listed for sale. A couple more color combinations are in the works, including the same purple heather, as on the trim above, used as the main body (that's it below). Still not sure if the trim will be light blue (not shown) or the same coral red as above. Any preferences?
What you can't see very well in the photos are the other colors spun into the yarn that finally create the color you see. The red has yellow, pink, and a tiny bit of lilac in it. And the purple has red, blue and a bit of turquoise.
I'll keep you posted when these are available for sale, but expect them "muy pronto" (very soon).
Oh . . . and while I was uploading these photos I came across some others I'd taken a week or so ago here on the ranch. Two different evenings, two different skies. Can you see the eagle sitting near the top of the joshua tree?
