Why does life always get in the way JUST when you get on a roll? I’d been doing so well posting regularly and remembering to take pictures and such… and then… well…
At any rate, I will be returning soon (if all goes well, that will be Monday).
For now, here is some roving I dyed in a range of colors. I’m thinking to ply each color with the same solid color, but I can’t decide which solid to use. My initial thought was black, but I am starting to wonder if that might not be too rainbow-y. White would definitely wash out the colors, while a neutral like brown or gray might just look poorly planned. Any thoughts?
Here are the colors (the black is in there because I was think of using it… try to pretend it isn’t there, please):
Wow, these really look overexposed. Sadly, I am kind of excited by this (given the usual darkness of my house).
I’m thinking to use the yarn I spin from this for a vest. I’d really like to hear thoughts about colors I should consider using as a second color for plying (Mom, that especially means you – comment already )
Back soon, I swear.Tags: dyeing, handspun, stash
