Getting down to the "Knitty Gritty"

This batch with the browns, rust orange, and dull greens I decided to call "Knitty Gritty". It's not so "pretty" as some of my other colors.
The bright rust orange I decided to call "Spicy Hot". It's definitely not for those who like their colors to be mild on the taste meter!
And here is my 2nd attempt at "Nectarine". I think this one is better than my 1st attempt from last summer.

The colors are not currently in all the sizes; I was just doing some experimenting.

Oooooh, my favourite colours together are bright orange and bright pink. Those are wonderful.

Jane's right! These are wonderful! Knitty Gritty is certainly not typical of what you've posted in the past, but I think it's beautiful! I like Spicy Hot and Nectarine as well. Thanks for showing off your new threads!

I love them all but I think nectarine is my favorite of the three.

Ok...I must have!! As soon as I get paid I am going to try your threads! They are simply gorgeous and I am sooo glad someone is doing finer threads!

Thanks, I am glad you like them. I wasn't sure about the "Spicey Hot". It turned out a little too "hot" for my taste, but I figured someone would be able to use it somewhere.

My mom would adore 'spicy hot.' She adores bright, bright colors. Me, I prefer 'knitty gritty.' It takes all kinds, I guess.
