In the strainer...straight from the pot. I was aiming for a verigated kind of yellow and I've got to say...I was delighted. My Sheepychic Mellow yellow mission accomplished!
Yellow Hankie here is a mixture of yellows which is (before you go thinking I'm clever or somethin'!!) merely the same shade of yellow in different strengths and the tiniest dash of red in the same technique I used for my 'trophy yarn'. (See previous posting)
Hand dyed (of course) and out drying on the line...looking at the photo..at the yellows and orange...it should be called 'citrussy'...but it isn't, is it...? Tweety bird meets Simba the Lion King??? Maybe..Please leave a comment if you can think of a suggestion.
I am looovveeen' this system of verigated colour now and I rarely use any other...(well...this week anyway!!) and as my research and development department (me after a couple of red wines) has discovered it works with any colour or mixture of colours you fancy!
Rovings are dry, bundled and looking fabulous!...Couldn't wait to spin them up!
All spun and plied back with gold metallic thread (suprise, suprise) The photo here appears lighter than the actual hank which seems a deeper yellow in real life....but you get the drift, I'm sure.
Stay tuned for other Sheepy colours...love yas!!!! Bye for now....
