It sparked the question of extension, which I've been wanting to do but never had the will power to finish.
So I devised a slight different way to go about it:
I have decided that instead of doing the whole thing in one run and one color, I would do each "arm" in a different color. Of course, they are each my own HDT, in size 40.
Not only am I doing each arm separately, I am also extending the arms out. The regular version has a row of 3 and a row of 6. This version has a row of 5 and a row 10.
So, since the 1 and 2 version that I posted yesterday didn't even resemble much of a spiral, I imagine that spiral will be even more pronounced on this one. I am really excited about it.
Now, here is an example of my newest colorway:
"The Heart within" by Frivole
I adore this pattern. Don't look to closely at my tatting on this one though. I didn't that I had loaded enough thread to do the outside and the inside. So, at first I did the outside and then since I did have enough thread, I tried to inside as an after thought. It still looks okay, but not as good as it would have.
Regarding "Havana" however, at first I thought that "Havana" looked very similar to my "Peacock", (which is sold out except for some size 80. It's one that I plan to redye though before Tat Days)
However, you can see from the photo that "Havana" has a more overall "green" cast to it, where as "Peacock" has a reddish brown and a bright yellow.
I added "Havana" to the shop yesterday. I only have size 20 and 40 of right now. But if you ever want a colorway in a different size, I can make it happen. I have skeins of size 80 already wound up. I also have a ball of size 10 that I can dye.
