Introducing Crash Test Colorways!

Hi everyone,

Well, I’ve been absent for a while while I was awaiting a precision scale and other supplies so that I can now write down formulas in order to repeat colorways. I am in the process of creating a permanent collection of colorways which will be loaded to the store on a regular basis and capable of being repeated.

While I determine which colorways will be permanent, I will be doing a bunch of testing. The test rovings will be offered in my Etsy store as “Crash Test Colorways”, only available in that one Etsy posting as it was a test colorway. Along the way, if any colorways really speak to you, please post here to let me know. I will consider reproducing the most popular ones. :)

BTW, Miss Poppy Flower is doing very well these days. Not up to 100%, but at least to 95% :D.

  1. my favorite is the one in the top left! But I'm a sucker for fall colours (all year round!) :)

  2. I really like the top right one, dark reds, colorway #5. I'm kind of bummed someone beat me to it, but yay for them, and for my husband, since I'm supposed to not be buying fiber till I use up some of my own. :-)

  3. Oh, and I also really like the peacock colors just below it - I've been a sucker for turquoise and purple (and pink) combinations since elementary school.

  4. Thank you, all! I know for sure that I will be adding the top two to the permanent collection, so I should have dups listed in the very hear future.

    The bottom right paler one doesn't look like much in the pic to me, but I'm going to spin it up because I have a sneaking suspicion that it will make a nice yarn. I'll post pics once I have it spun up.

  5. What amazingly beautiful yarn! I am in awe of your talent! Found you in the etsy blog roll, you can find my blog at I'm going to create a link to your blog as these yarns are phenomenal!
