Ravelry says that 9.7% of my stash is in the red colour family. That’s actually surprising since I thought I have more of it. And that’s just actual red, not red orange or red with colours from other family.
I want to show you some of the most vivid reds in my yarn stash, starting with this gorgeous garnet silk lace from Lisa Souza.
It was a destash from Alicia. I loved it on the computer screen but I fell hard for it even more when I saw it in person. It’s a rich deep red and I have decided to knit a Shetland Pi Shawl with it. Wendy Johnson did a KAL on it recently and I missed out since I was doing other projects. But I have more than enough yardage in these 2 skeins to make the full sized shawl.
Next up we have one of the most popular colours from Sundara Yarn, Crushed Cherries. I have used up this skein to knit up my Little Shells shawl. Still doesn’t stop me from admiring this beautiful colour. I wish I have more of it in Silk Sport.
Which then brings us to my current pride and joy, courtesy of Susan from our recent swap: Ruby Port in Sundara Sock. Isn’t she pretty? I haven’t decided what to knit with this yet, I’ll let it marinate in my stash for a while and when I can pluck up enough courage to wind it into a skein and knit, then I’ll start looking at patterns. Although I have a sneaky feeling that whatever I decide this skein will not end up on my feet!
I’m having a great time knitting and catching up with all the TV season premiers so excuse the lack of proper blog updates. They’re all in draft and I just need to find the words to replace all the blah-blah placeholders.
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
