A Line of Plucky Girl Yarns ~

As you may or may not have surmised from previous posts related to my Plucky girl, she’s is a bit artsy/quirky. Her artsy talents are definitely the strongest in photography and music. When she saw all the yarn laying about the house, she quickly picked up a few of her favorites and wanted to name them. So, I present to you the Plucky Girl line of yarn (dyed by me, named by S). Now if I could just get her to re-skein some yarn for me!

jungle-love.jpg  Jungle Love by Steve Miller Band – 100% Merino Fingering

garden-grove.jpg  Garden Grove, Sublime – 100% Merino Lace Weight (shades of peach, faded tangerine and orange)

mr-brown.jpg  Mr. Brown, by Bob Marley – 100% Merino Fingering (Kettle Dyed) various shades of brown, pale  sage and cream.

trenchcoat-rock-3.jpg  Trench  Town Rock, Bob Marley (her fave)  – 100% Merino Fingering. Shades of vibrant teal with subtle variations of sea green. Very caribbean and fun.

 lucy-in-the-sky-w-diamonds-4.jpg  Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds – 100% Merino Lace Weight – Yes, Plucky girl knows this song wasn’t on this LP, but on the Sgt. Pepper LP – but she didn’t want to get that out of her record frame for the photo. I assured her this would work just fine (she’s a stickler for this sort of thing). Shades of blue, silver grey, cream and denim blue.

Ok, I named the next one – I couldn’t help myself.

tsarinas-boudoir.jpg  Tsarina’s Boudoir – 100% Merino Fingering – Various shades of mauve, pale lilac and silvery grey. Oh so subtle and pretty.

While I wan winding this one, all I kept thinking about was Tsarina Alexandra’s Mauve Boudoir. Odd inspiration, I know, but there you have it – that’s what I see when I look at this yarn.

scarletts-red-dress-2.jpg  Scarlett’s Red Dress – 100% Merino Lace Weight   – Remember in GWTW when Scarlett shows up at Ashley and Melanie’s (Melanie is dying)  house in “the” red dress? Oh.The.Scandal. Well, this just screams that dress. Deep, dark, blistering red and crimson. So dark and lovely.

***Edited to Add*** This was actually the dress Scarlett wore to Ashley’s birthday party. Oy. I am off my game the last couple days!   It was a scandal because the   whole town thought they had been caught in an  scandalous embrace – when   it was actually a “good-bye hug” as Scarlett finally accepted that  Ashley really did love Melanie.   Scarlett wanted to skip the party, but   Rhett made her go, wearing that dress. Thanks Karen!! There is someone out there that is just as (or more) obsessed with GWTW than me!

Lest you think I no longer knit, that is so not the case (In fact, I am missing the needles very much today. But, while skeining up the yarn  I have been day dreaming about  what to put up in my knit que on Ravelry).  Just trying to get as much dyeing in as I can before Thursday when I head back to the day job.
