This was a repeat order of some beautiful thick and thin yarn. What I particularly love about this is the way my creations were sent out into the world and inspired more creativity.
Glorious celebrations of colour:
Lapis – an Afghan midnight
Onyx – dark and mysterious
Ruby – blood-red gem
Indigo – brought to life by the sun
Opal – beauty from scattering of light
Ultramarine – deep blues of the sea
Silver – pure, white elegance.
Teal – delicious blends of blue and green
Ecru – earthy white
Cyan – a colour primary! One of the ABCs of inks
Hazel – autumnal shades
Navy – uniform blue
Ivory – creamy white and musical
Coral – delicate pink of the sea creature
Ochre – ancient dye. A link to the past
Lilac – pale purple of the garden
Olive – deep, dark, savoury green
Rainbows – nature’s paint box
