A dip into the molecular lab and mathematics

I've just finished updating the shop with some really bright new colorways. I think the long, dragged-out winter season we're experiencing here in London is really starting to get to me. I want strong contrasts and warm tones to put on my head, feet and hands.

This is the tamest of the colorways in this update: Euglena on Suffolk. I like how the bright, contrasting greens still show up on the darker brown fiber. This is a good choice if you want something a little less wild, and would be really good for some sturdy socks.

From the tamest we go to the wildest - FRET YFP-CFP on Romney. This is a colorway inspired by a technique used in determining molecular interactions within cells. You can read more about it from links on the colorway page. And along with it, comes its blue/purple/red compatriot on Cheviot. I'm seeing these two as a grand, cheerful hat/mitten combination!

I think this might be my favorite of all of the new colorways: Golden Mean on Shetland. I decided I needed some more yellows, and I'm not a big yellow person generally, so it was a bit of a struggle to get this one together. But I love the interplay between different warm tones and the purple. And this Shetland is so soft, that I want it cuddled up right next to my face: a cowl for sure!

I hope you are all managing the end of winter, wherever you may be, and keeping warm while you're doing it.

Happy spinning,
