ColourSpun Colourways - Margaret's Granny

Last week, not one but both of the undersea cables that help provide our internet went down. We also had one of those notorius highveld storms with thunder and lightning and so when everyone else was reconnected, we weren't. we had little spurts of connectivity and so never realised the problem was with our hardware. Anyway after much to-ing and fro-ing  we are finally all up and working again. I have received quite a few pictures and so have some catching up to do. Here's the first one, from Margaret Pretorius.

The ColourSpun Pure Cotton colours used here are

Top row: 051 319 328 406 329 039
Middle row: 124 042 047 054 470 307
Bottom row: 309 090 060 103 116 Natural

Have fun!

ColourSpun Colourways

I am often asked by my customers to help put together colourways for their projects. I love doing this and so I thought it would be fun to share them. I aim to post a colourway as often as possible and will  give my yarn/fabric/embroidery thread colours with each one so they will be easy to find on my website -

Today's colourway was put together for the Playing Hooky crochet group for a blanket CAL. It's lovely and bright and summery and pictured here in ColourSpun Pure Cotton.

Clockwise from the top left, the colours are: 004 017 029 036 402 152 160 424 165 172 183 454
