To celebrate the anniversary Angela, the talented dyer behind Fleur de Fiber, added four new Chicago inspired colorways. Angela's colors are amazing and they keep getting better. It's no surprise that a few skeins came home with me that day.
Here is Angela with all her yarns on display.
Every year here in Chicago they dye the Chicago River green for St. Patrick's Day. That was the inspiration for the first colorway. Dye the River Green:
Next up we have the colorway based on the Bucking ham Fountain at night. Fire Water - Buckingham Fountain:
Last but not least we have 2 colorways based on the Puppet Bike.
I give you Puppet Bike By Day:
And Puppet Bike By Night:
I also received a new skein of yarn from my friend Laura. We started a yarn barter so we could each experience new yarns that we might not normally find especially since she lives in the UK. If you get a moment you should check out Laura's blog Knitzors. For this skein she sent me a gift card to GnomeAcres, and I picked out a beautiful color called Ninja Cupcake. I'm so in love with it. Here is a picture of the yarn with Takara guarding it for me.
I have a few ideas of what I will send her next. :) I'm really enjoying this! I believe that is all for now. Until next time Happy Crafting!
