Goldmine and Dragonfly

A new colour that I imagined during the week: Goldmine, a rich hot red-gold shading through pure gold to lemon to charcoal shadows. The first is high twist merino sock yarn:

And this is the long pattern, on Exmoor Blueface white top:

And then my favourite fibre of all, plain oatmeal BFL, in the usual variegated pattern:
Goldmine, oatmeal bfl

And I've had some excellent suggestions for the last new colour, and the one that keeps coming back to me is Dragonfly:
new, high twist merino yarn

  1. I love that red/gold mix. I'm just sorting out my yarn to knit a shawl in a similar colourway to that . Sadly, I've discovered the moths have been at my Colinette box, so I'm clearing the freezer to fill with wool!
