New Colorways

I did a quick search on the color forecast for spring and summer of 2011. The colors above are an extract of one set. Most of the spring and summer colors look to be what we traditionally consider to be fall colors. I spun two freeform yarns, a coil, and a single, so there is enough to make a shawl.
The colors below were spun just prior to the golds. I had some "red" kid mohair already spun up that will go nicely with the green. I spun 3 freeform ones in this series.
I am already on to reds with touches of orange and white. Stitches West is just a month away!
I did get into the Albuquerque Fiber Fiesta and the spring 4th Avenue Street Fair 2011. I won't be doing the San Diego show, unless the Tempe show moves to a different weekend. San Diego was OK, but Tempe was awesome and so much closer to home.
I finished the versatile vest order and decided that it would be the last knitting order that I will fill. From now on, I will be knitting to design patterns. If the model sells, I will still have the pattern. Spinning is a much better use of my time.
