Wild Flowers - superwash merino

My fiberlicous week in review – the wool is drying quickly in these warmer, breezier days.  I loved every sunny morning in July – they were delicious – especially for my early morning photography.  The sun is already changing and I’m having to wait longer in the day to get the best day light already…fall is coming..  yay! This of course is when I would “start” some summer knitting..latest on my needles is a beginner lace scarf from a free pattern, details to follow.   I’m loving this pattern as it only calls for about 100 yards! Yay! 🙂   I’ve received a couple of orders for roving and am going to try and make listings for roving in my shop soon.  A couple of new colorways found their way into the world this past week.  Wild flowers made it’s debut yesterday and is a soft, summery collection of colors.  More options could happen with this palette and will be fun to dream about! (I already see some silk sometime!).
