Farben / Colours

Da ich mir ein Wollkaufverbot auferlegt habe, aber trotzdem mit neuem Garn spielen wollte, und ausserdem entdeckt habe, dass sich duenne Garne (also Sockenwollstaerke und darunter) nicht nur fuer Socken und Tuecher eignen, habe ich mir bei Holst Garn die Farbkarten von Coast, Supersoft und Noble bestellt.

As I am currently under a self-imposed yarn buying ban, but still wanted to play with new yarn, and, in addition, had discovered that finer yarns (i,e. fingering / light fingering and below) are not only great for socks and shawls, I have ordered shade cards for Coast, Supersoft und Noble from Holst Garn.

Normally, blue is my favourite colour – like these
