And here are my creations:
|Fyberspates Sparkle Merino Silk Lace|
named after the colour of Belle Époque Paris.
|(Richard Serra at the Petit Palais in 2007)|
|Fyberspates Scruptious Sock|
named after the purple favoured by the Byzantines.
|(Mosaic in a small church in Istanbul)|
And finally, Lovely Cotinga
|Fyberspates Sheila's Sock|
named after this lovely bird.

Naming them was almost as much fun as dyeing them.
I went a bit mad surrounded by all the Fyberspates loveliness, and came away with far more lace and sock yarn than I possibly need. My creations and purchases, followed by a week of Paris shopping (more on that later), have filled my stash to overflowing, and I've had to remove a bag of recycled yarn to make room. I forsee much shawl knitting in my future.
