donated to my fleece stash (which incidentally is actually the same age as me! The curls that is not the stash pile!)
First of all was a combination of Yellow, Magenta and Turquoise. As you can see I've ended up with some of those sap yellow/green shades again (good thing I like them!) along with more greener shades and shots of magenta and there are tiny blueish spots that you can't really see from this shot.Next I wanted BLUE!! A lot of the turquoise dye hadn't been taken in the last batch and so I thought I wouldn't waste it and tried for a blue mix using the turquoise, blue and lilac and also threw in a small skein of yarn from a giant cone I have, the label for which I think DH seems to have thrown in the bin! Anyway this lot is really bright and zingy - I think I may have overdone the dye somewhat!! The colours here are pretty accurate in showing it as a royal blue/purple mix.Finally I fancied some fiery tones and tried some red, yellow and magenta. Initially I had too much water in the pot and ended up with a non-descript cornflake orange which was a bit boring so I put a few squirts of magenta in here and there and set it simmering again and was much happier with the results which again are fairly accurate - just how much brighter could a flash make an already bright fleece?
So there you go - a mix of indoor and outdoor lighting to show off some vivid fleeces to play with. Now the next important question - Just what am I going to do with it all?
BTW - I'm being a bit of a slow knitter at the mo. My Jaywalker is at a standstill until I can get another 2.25mm dpn to replace the one DD broke but the jumper is nearly finished, well I'm almost finished with the 1st sleeve so not too far to go - I will have more FO's to follow in the not too distant future!
