NO SWAN FLU HERE

Yes, the Swans are alive and well, and swimming in new colors!

New Kidsilk Haze shades for spring:

642Ghost-Thumb.jpg Ghost (hey, I don't name these things!) - a so-pale-it's-almost-white gray

643Flower-Thumb.jpg Flower - pink

644Ember-Thumb.jpg Ember - nice gold

645Garden-Thumb.jpg Garden - a bright, light green

And a ton of new Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift colors. I'll highlight a few of the colors here on Ideaphoria, and let you browse the twoswansyarns.com site to see the others.

Anyone who's studied the Spindrift line will have noticed that tan colors have been missing. Now, that gap has been filled. My favorite is

or you can also choose from the solids Oatmeal or Cashew.

998AutumnThumb.jpg
The long-awaited Autumn
(sometimes called Hairst, the Scottish word for that same season) is now available, along with

Marjoram-Thumb.jpg Marjoram, which is a little less bright than Pistachio or Chartreuse

and

Delph-Thumb.jpg Delph, one of my all-time faves.

I can't resist jewel tones, so I would be hard-pressed to say which of these are my favorite:

CosmosThumb.jpg Cosmos, which is darker than the Spindrift version of Midnight, and richer than Dark Navy

ConiferThumb.jpg Conifer, a rich, dark green (may look a little washed out in my photo)

Cardinal-Thumb.jpg Cardinal, a cool red.

And many more new colors of Spindrift. I am still in the process of uploading them to the Two Swans site, so if you don't find what you're looking for there, please ask.

And, last but not least, my friend Susanna Hansson twisted my arm to get me to stock even more new colors in Satakieli, among them these:

499CranberryThumb.jpg 499 Cranberry

938RaisinThumb.jpg 938 Raisin, a dark, purply-brown

770CaribbeanThumb.jpg 770 Turquoise Green

981SageThumb.jpg 981 Sage

along with several other shades of Satakieli new to Two Swans. Again, I'm still photographing and uploading the images for these new colors, so if you don't see what you're looking for, please ask.

There is a tiny problem with the Two Swans site. When you mouse over the Flower color, the large picture above the selection drop down does not change to the Flower jpg. Both the mouseover for Flower and for Ember display the jpg for Ember.

That little mouseover problem is all fixed. Thanks for calling it to my attention!
