Awesome Sister and I pulled out the dyepots this weekend. It had been quite awhile since we had done this so it was a nice change of pace.
First up I’ll show Awesome Sister’s skeins.
1. Sparkle sock (80/15/5 SW Merino/nylon/sparkle)
Dark grey, intense blue and scummy green
2. Cash DK (80/10/10 SW Merino/Cashmere/Nylon)
Self striping skein. 6 rows grey, 6 rows variegated blue
Awesome Sisters set:
3. BFL Sock (80/20 BFL/Nylon)
I call this one Christmas Camouflage. pink, turquoise, chartreuse, orange and piney green
This one turned out very pale compared to what I envisioned, but it should be nice any way.
I’ve already wound and cast on my dk stripe skein, and I’m so glad that it is working out. 🙂 All that swatching and measuring was worth it.
(bonus shot of Kitt learning how to model knits)
When I was thinking of the colours to use for my variegated stripe I read some interesting posts on colour theory. The first is specifically for knitters and the 2nd more for designers, but it works for all colour stuff.
The split complementary scheme is definitely going to be useful for choosing shawl colours
Here is where I found information on the rectangle colour scheme.
We have snuggles! They don’t last forever but it is amazing progress
