Color to the Rescue

 Our Kentucky landscape gets a bit blah this time of year- above is a picture I took from the studio window on Monday....
And then yesterday....The snow always seems to brighten the hills and my mood, but it's easy to see why I want to work with bright colors at these times.  Here's some of the roving that I just had processed at Ohio Valley, already hand-dyed, and the resulting handspun yarn.
Valentine colors seem to be attracting me right now, I wonder why?
 
I've even nearly finished a new hat knit with handspun from last week's batch of roving.
 
The studio is absolutely bursting with brightness. And that doesn't even include the valentine fabric and felt surprises.... more on those to come.



Pin It Now!

Love the juxtaposition of the bleak winter colors with the vibrant fiber.

Craving colors here in Minnesota too! (our landscape is all white right now) Thanks for providing some eye candy!

Oh, your colors are a burst of energy we all need for this time of year. I am going to send some of my fiber down to the Ohio Mill to see how I like it. So far I've liked everything I've seen from there.

Thanks for giving this wondergal a burst of energy (bahaha, like I need more)

Thanks for the comments, everyone is appreciating bright colors about now! Wait until I post the hat I felted this morning... orange with purple, pink and teal accents! No natural colors for me lately.

Beautiful colors! Definitely a great way to beat winter blahs.

Your post was a bright spot of color on a gloomy, average day. Thanks!
