Yes, but of course ! I want to think that somehow these colors are destined to match up, perhaps something more like disagreeable neighbors, but I have faith that it will finish harmoniously. A stretch of my imagination, maybe, but to be an Intentional Dyer is beyond my ability, and ‘I’m okay with that’. I often settle with leaving colorways up to the Sisters of Fate, and to just let the sweaters be what they want to be.
I managed to find some one-hundred-percent superwash merino wool yarn in DK (double knitting) weight, on close-out discount, and bought a lot of it. Light blue and a heathered medium grey. Over-dyed dramatically, to create one-of-a-kind colorways in my nieces’ favorite colors, for what will in a couple of months’ time ~ my nieces Autumn Sweaters. There’s actually really nice and subtle varigation from the original colors and the over-dyed colors… exciting !
What you see draped over the chair is for one of the sweaters, the younger of my two nieces. The other will make an appearance later, in a second colorway, in a second sneak preview. So here I go, winding off a gazillion yards into balls…
