I enlisted the help of a couple of our friends.
Fox is by far the best at naming. So good is she at this "task"(Well, I find it a task, she seems to enjoy it), that I usually run to her when I have a beautiful colorway that needs naming. Thank you Fox!
She named this one "Madder Tatter", I love the name!
But, I did not stop there. Over a month ago, I was in correspondence with Umintsuru. (Such a sweet lady) She suggested that it would be nice see samples of my colorways and she offered to tat some for me.
The idea in general is a fabulous one, however it requires me to wind additional sample skeins, and then wait for the postman to carry my package to the other side of the planet before I can get the sample picture.
But, I realized that I probably wasn't going to be getting a whole heck of a lot of dyeing done due to school taking up so much time, so when I dyed up this gorgeous lot, I went and ahead and sent her some.
Now, I only wish that I had dyed more of "Madder Tatter" while I was waiting because as you can see here it works of GORGEOUSLY!
This Goldfish design of Nami's was tatted by Umintsuru in Tat-illicious HDT size 40 "Madder Tatter".
I must say, she did a wonderful job picking out a suitable pattern and I always adore her tatting. So precise! Love it!
I am in the process right now of listing what I have. I love this colorway so much though and because I have so little size 40 dyed (I was low on size 40 when I dyed the batch) I will be dyeing more of this very very soon!
She also tatted another sample, but I'll save it for another post, it is not a new colorway though, so don't get too excited. :o)
