Tweed Chronicles: Golden State (of being)

A blissful golden sun-glow in the wild & wide open fields of late summer is signature to California, known as the Golden State.

I love when a storm is brewing and there is the quivering sort of gold from the vines…

So naturally, I would create my own woolly golden too.

A kind of gold that brings together a color-saturated neutral with natural white,  amber & gold.

This colorway sings of the mountain in June thru October ~~  it is my “Golden”.

And here is how I made it …

  1. Did you hear something? Was that me? Was that a sigh or a gasp? Images and memories, sensory contentment. Is this the Magical Mineral Tour? I loved the grey, but now I’m torn. Ooh…I know. Can you show Fog and Golden together? Or maybe give us a trunk show of all the Tweed Chronicle Creations …so far. You are having fun, lI’ll warrant. : > )

    • Ms Tadpole, oh yes, they are meant, created, to be paired together, and after I have finished my palette (maybe never, eh?) I will begin some colorwork of 2 or more together in … of course… a Jenjoyce Original. Such a patterns will be one hundred percent compatible with commercial sport-dk-worsted weights too. xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
