Hey, so check it out. I've got all kinds of stuff going on here today! (channelling Randy Jackson) Here's a sneak peek at the Merino/Silk (50/50) fresh from the kettle and drying out in the Arizona Sun. I had to go with an Emerald in honor of St. Patrick's Day. I threw in a couple of my personal favs, Gypsy Wine and Golden Ochre. I tried something a little different with the blue. I knew I wanted a blue shade and something bright for Spring and Summer, but I just wasn't in the mood for Sapphire, Turquoise or Sky Blue. I decided to mix a couple together and I'm calling this hue Royal Turquoise. You'll be able to see it better when I take a close-up tomorrow, but it turned out really nice. I love turquoise, but sometimes I think straight turquoise can be a little one dimensional and not really a good representation of the natural stone. I new the merino and the silk would take the color each in their own unique way and to give it even more depth, I added in some Royal Blue . It turned out really pretty. I can't wait for you to see it when it's dry.
While I was playing outside with my camera, I took a couple more pictures. I've always wanted to take a better shot of my Beaded Happy Green yarn. I knew it would look nice out in the grass on a sunny day. So here it is, appearing like a carefree little garden snake.
Last, but not least today, I finally finished spinning my hemp. It's not even listed at Wind Rose Art Yarn yet so this is really a sneak peek. So here it is, all 125 yards of Handspun Azalea Hemp.
So that's what's happening around here today. What's happening in your studio?
