This week I started playing a bit with my “Deep Water” fleece. The fully saturated color is pretty intense,
so I thought I’d do some blending to create some different shades with Dottie (silver grey) and Frank/Felix (white)-
That worked out nicely, and I expanded my experimentation to make some blue-based multis
Here are all my little wool muffins waiting to be spun- in a cool sheep planter (seemed appropriate) 🙂
And here are the new spins!
Also have another hat underway- here’s a little close-up of the color scheme
I do love mixing and matching colors to come up with combos that kind of pop. Think this one is going to fun- the oranges and golds are so energizing, and the greens balance it, I think. Guess we’ll see when it’s done and blocked!
Also been meaning to mention a cool book that The Man got for me recently-
Been enjoying making my way through her adventure- meeting sheep of many breeds, their shepherds, and taking in the landscape.
Scottish Isles, sheep, wool, and socks- definitely a winning combination!
A thoughtful gift from your man. Love the color fiber and hat!
thanks Michelle. yep- it’s kind of funny that it came up on his radar. I had never heard of it!
Love the colors and the book!
thanks Donna- the book is pretty neat- especially some of the cool people that she meets along the way-
Gorgeous wool, and where did you get the planter – I want! The book looks awesome; I will have to look it up.
thanks Maureen- you can find the planter on Amazon- it’s “Creative Co-op Resin Sheep Planter”.
