Big Box of Freia

Mr. Canada Post surprised me with a box from Freia Fibers this morning. It left California last week and I didn't expect to see it until after Christmas.

I ordered in three colours of fingering weight Flux colours. These colours come in 50gram balls.

This colour is Ultraviolet.
Each 50 gram ball begins and ends with the same color, making for easy transitions from one ball to the next and leading to less waste. Flux Handpaints will have a base of 8 colors per ball, though the dyes blend together and form additional colors. Each ball is unique but we dye in batches of at least 24, ensuring overall continuity through sweater quantities within a single dye lot.

I looked on Ravelry and a pattern that looks great in this yarn is Wingspan. 2 balls will make the scarf.

We received more Lace as well. These are Ombre colours.
Smooth, slow gradations are the signature of the Ombré color range. Ombré yarns come in 75 gram balls in super bulky, worsted, sport, fingering and lace weight wool and wool blends. We carefully transition five or more colors/shades per ball making for very long, yet still dramatic color changes. We suggest working from alternate ends of each ball as you go for smooth color transitions since every ball will begin and end with different colors.
The Sonoma Scarf (we have patterns in the store or you can purchase on Ravelry) takes one ball of Lace.
Diamond shaped panels of trellis and leaves surrounded by a slim garter stitch border travel the length of this single ball project. Pattern is charted and easy to memorize after the first few repeats
See our stock of Lace colours...
 
We are stocked on Super Bulky again too.
Dirty Hippie is my favourite colour - I think I need to knit a cowl in it.
That Big Hat (free pattern on Ravelry) knit with one ball of Bulky. The cowls are a free pattern in the store when you purchase the yarn. One ball and 15mm needles.

I was so close to finishing last night. I had 15 stitches to go but I was so tired that I couldn't see. I finished this morning. The Doodler needs a good soak in Soak - maybe tonight.
That is three finished projects in the last week. I'm scaring myself :)
