YPF: The Mama Blue Edition

Beekeeper

The camera does not do this yarn and colorway justice. It is absolutely gorgeous and golden!
I like to blame Peaknits for this enabling. Back in July, it was post after post of gorgeous Mama Blue socks and yarn. I held out as long as I could (and by then of course, it was selling out so quickly!).

Beekeeper

Mama Blue Troika Sock yarn, colorway Beekeeper

Mama Blue Hederas

I couldn't resist casting on with this yarn right away, despite the many many socks on the needles. This is the Bramble colorway. Perfect for the Hedera pattern.

Happy Friday!!

Oh, I so should have kept Mama a secret - hee hee! The Hederas are so pretty - I can't get my hands on Troika - I love the shiny-ness of it! The beekeeper is gorgeous too!

Pretty! Nice combo of pattern of yarn and pattern too.

I've had Hedera on my to-knit list for so long, but it's been a case of having too many choices of yarns to choose from.

Ooooh very pretty! The twist on that yarn looks so spongy!

Disco said...

Love the beekeeper colour. Such a lovely honey colour.

And the socks are spectacular. That colour is so pretty :0)

Both are beautiful, but that second sock yarn has my eyes nearly glued to the screen. At first, I was surprised to see non-STR yarn, but now I know why. This stuff is simply incredible!

Oooo, looooove that Beekeeper! And Hedera is one of my favorite knitty patterns!

Zonda said...

Very pretty!! Bramble is looking good knit up too!

sgeddes said...

Both colors are so pretty! I think the bramble color is going to make a beautiful pair of hedras!

Nell said...

That orange is the perfect color for Fall. And suddenly it seems like we're here! Cooler temps are prevailing!

Rani said...

Knitting Kris said...

Neuroknitter said...

Pretty, pretty! I love the Hederas!

And Mama Blue is already sold out...that's what I get for hitting the beach for a couple of days! Ack!

Rocky said...

OMG, both gorgeous yarns... that first one.. uHH!...my color totally...I swear yarn is like kryptonite! I get totally weak!

tapmouse said...

Ah, the Mama Blue that Cupcake Faerie had ratted you out on...gorgeous! And the Hedera is looking great! I love that pattern-one of the first ones that turned me on to Cookie A! I think I was wearing mine when I first spotted Cookie out at
Purlescence and pulled the 'Adoring Fan' on her!

Vaedri said...

Even just the start of the Hedera is lovely. And perfect yarn!

Marisol said...

I know what you mean... That Peaknit is a very powerful enabler! I have been eyeing Mama Blue but can't seem to time it right for the updates he he...

Lovely yarn as usual!
