Summer is almost over and that means its almost time for the K-W Knitter’s Fair!  I’ve been going to this event for the last few years (well ever since we moved closer to it), and this year I decided it was time for Laines Magnifiques to become a vendor!  I decided late but was able to obtain a booth and am thrilled that I will be vending there!  It’s my first show, so I’m really unsure of how much yarn is enough so I have begun some crazy dyeing in order to get everything dyed up well in advance!  I’m working on a 4-5 skeins per colourway and ones that have been more popular in the past I am doing 10 skeins in 2 or 3 yarn bases!

Anyway, it should be lots of fun, I’m excited and nervous, but looking at it as a learning experience and a chance to meet a lot of great people! 🙂

Yup, that’s right.  I’ve been in a blue and purple mood lately when it comes to dyeing and colours!  I’ve create two new colourways with these colours and am quite pleased with the results.

The first colourway is called Rhapsody.  I did it on a couple of different fibers but the one I am most pleased with was my new Amour Superwash Merino (Amour because I love how soft, supple and shiny it is and I love how brilliant the colours look on it!)  The name Rhapsody is a little more random.  I was singing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” while I was dyeing and thought what a cool name for a colourway 😀

So without further ado…Summer 2009s first NEW colourway:

Rhaspody on Amour Merino Worsted

Rhaspody on Amour Merino Worsted

Note the ice blue, bright purple, iris, black and a touch of natural for a wonderful contrast!  I am so pleased with the way this colourway turned out!

Now for my second new colourway.  This colourway is currently an Aran Yarn Club exclusive so it won’t be introduced into my mainstream colourways until January 2010, in which I can guarantee I will be dyeing it again at that time! 🙂

This colourway is called “Bohemian” (again, the Queen reference…songs in my head while dyeing creates some interesting results!  I could have called it “5 Little Ducks” since that was the other song in my head but it just didn’t fit! LOL  C’mon, you know the tune “5 little ducks went out one day, over the hills and far away, Father Duck said ‘Quack Quack Quack Quack’ but only 4 little ducks came back…” Ahh the influence of a 2 year old! It’s my daughters new favourite song!

Okay so back to the yarn….

Bohemian can be found in the Yarn Club Spoilers page (since I like to keep it hidden for those subscribers who enjoy the surprise! 😉 )  Be sure to go check it out!  It’s pretty rockin’…

Pics coming soon! All subscriptions have shipped! 🙂 I have to say that I adore this new colourway and stashed a skein of it to keep for my own personal use!! Keep an eye out! 🙂  I will give you the name though!  I’ve called it “New Beginnings”, since dyeing this yarn became very helpful for me during this difficult time.  I put it on the lovely worsted weight Rayonannt Organic Merino.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it all as I have creating it! 🙂
