Mosaics with yarn

 

I had the opportunity to attend a wonderful workshop. Sharon MacMahon, owner of Three Irish Girls, spoke about her company and the processes of creating her beautiful yarns. The colors are beautiful – lush, rich, scrumptious, vibrant….I would love one of each.  Mind you – I still have not completed a whole pair of socks!

I am joining Mary at Little Red House for this fun and creative event. Be sure to stop by and see what other blogs have put together!

Wonderful yarns, the colors are great. I need some of those for my knitting. Thanks for sharing.

How scrumptious are these? The colours are wonderful, I can't choose between them, they're all gorgeous.
BTW I've never knitted socks either!

Vee said...

Oh you're going to have so much fun working with those delicious yarns. I so want to see what you create, too.

Now that is a subject for great creativity in at least two ways...photography and knitting...and you are definately a master photographer...and working on the knitting!!! I'm still working on my first PAIR of socks started ahhhhem...two years ago....LOL! Beautiful colors and beautiful mosaics. Merry Christmas Carol!

Suzanne said...

Oh lucious yarn--how beautiful in a mosaic! Merry Christmas and I wonder what you will knit up:-)

Hi Carol, Now that I have my computer back I'm trying to catch up on visiting! I was looking at your beautiful Christmas decor and am so happy to see the carolers. I have quite a few and I just love them. Recently went to the factory where they are made. And your table and pointsettias are also wonderful. One of the nicest Christmas displays I have ever seen was actually in Florida at Disney World of all places, where we went about 15 years ago when the kids were little. It was early December and pointsettias were everywhere. So surprising to a New England girl like me! Enjoy the warm weather! Linda

Certainly puts a bit of color into an otherwise grey colorless day! Makes me want to get out and buy some yarn to knit a pair of socks!

How beautiful! I love having a bowl or basket full of pretty yarn to enjoy! Happy holidays! ♥

Oh Carol, you make me want to just crawl into my monitor and cozy up with those yarns! They are scrumptious indeed!

I love yarns -- learned to knit at 7 and grew up with a nonstop-knitting Mom. I thought all living rooms were decorated with baskets of wool.

These yarns are ....ummm... just fabulous.
Right now I'm knitting in "boy" colors, for my little great-nephew twins!
