So far, I have gotten to "Kaleidoscope", "Mother of Pearl" and "Harvest"
Kaleidoscope, (thank you Ladytats!) needs to be re-done , because the transistion between purple and orange needs to eased. Also, I think the green needs to be darkened just a smidge.
What do you think?
Next, Bonnie's suggestion for "Mother of Pearl" had me scratching my head. How in the world was I going to make this one happen?
I waited a little too late today to take pictures. There was kind of an overcast, so this picture is actually a little darker than the actual colors.
And then Martha's suggestion for Harvest had me really excited. Except, I seem to have trouble with my browns. This time it turned our really gray. So, I think when I redo this one, I will use the same brown that I used in Peacock. THEN, I tried to wing a dark red... and you as you can see, it looks like dark red violet.
Plus, there are my usual holes that come with this dark pink color. I really need to figure out how to fix that. I think I found a product that will help though today. :o)
So Martha, thank you so much for the idea. I will try again to get something that I feel does your suggestion more justice though.
SOOO, the skeins that are not going to the inspiring persons, will start to go in the shop on Friday!
OH and I did my first dyeing attempt at yarn the other day.
The reason for my dyeing yarn was so that I could send it a lady in Alaska who is going to crochet an elephant for Livi with it.
I am so excited to see how the elephant will turn out!!
But, here's what the yarn looked like before I sent it:
ALSO, I have a somewhat silly favor to ask. Next week is Livi's 5th birthday. (June 13th). If anyone would like to send her a birthday card, I know that she would get the biggest kick out of it! She absolutely loves to go through the blogs with me. So I know it will mean a lot to her.
Anyway, if you send her a birthday card, I'll send you a coupon for free shipping to be used in my etsy shop.
The coupon will be individual, so that means that you can use whenever you want.
