Blue And Green Make Pretty

I’m a sucker for blue and green together. I don’t know why I love this color combo so much, but it surely makes my heart sing.

So imagine what happened when one of my fellow Ravelers who is doing the fractal challenge posted pictures of two gorgeous braids of blue and green fiber (along with the yarn she made from one of the braids and the shawl she started knitting with it). Yep, I just had to have it.

Both braids side by side. They really are different colors as well as different fibers. :-)

The fiber is from Turtlepurl Yarns in Hillsborough, New Brunswick, Canada. The prices and postage were so reasonable that I just had to order more than two braids.

There's more to life than blue and green.

The color way of this lovely Merino top is called Strawberry Cupcakes.

And this brilliant color way of alpaca/BFL/icicle blend pencil roving is appropriately named Firestarter.

I really cannot get over how many wonderfully talented indie dyers there are. So far I have kept my spinning stash on a leash, but I can see it easily entering S.A.B.L.E. territory. (Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy) Must. Use. Restraint. 🙂
