A 'SWEET' POST

I must be craving sugar.  Right now I am all about the candy colours : )
Remember this 'creamsicle' shawl? Well I finished it and I just love it.  It goes with what's left of my red hair. It's greying fast these days.......



Then the same woman that dyed this yarn, came up with this 'licorice' colour way. I immediately thought of licorice allsorts candy.....


and had to have it in the shop!


Right away I wound a skein and cast on for a pair of fun socks.  I added in a bit of the leftover creamsicle yarn because I really wanted an orange heel


and just like that a heel is born  : )  My candy bag had no blue candies. Wha???

This next combo reminds me of summer sherbet.  I am using two stands of yarn for this shawl. A Malabrigo sock yarn and a silk haze yarn.



It's a real coral colour that my camera just can't capture. Even still, that colour! Delicious.

Enjoy your week end!
Carla

The tangerine color is perfect for you Carla. And I don't see gray anywhere in that photo except perhaps the siding on of the building or fence behind you.
