Rather excited to have found a pattern that will will work with the yarn I've been spinning. Really really excited even. Though I'm not as excited about the red... I'm thinking a nice green and bare yarn instead of the blue. Keeping the yellow and maybe..... Well I'm not really sure what colour to use in place of the Grey.
My first worry however was that the colour itself would be too light and too blue. Which is why I added more dye than I normally would have. Did I mean for it to end up exactly this way with such varied degrees in colour? Not even slightly! Do I like how it turned out? Absolutely!!
Honestly, before I even finished rinsing it I had fallen for the colour. Hahaha I know. I'm getting a little yarn crazy here. I even started to really like the colour variations.
Second colour down and two more to go. Lilac will be replacing the grey in the original pattern.
Up until this point I have been so excited about how my yarn was turning out...and then....
I have no idea why my brain didn't put it together... Easter!!! Gah!!! Why did I do this to myself!?
Sure the colours go together rather lovely...but why!? I'm a little too old for this Easter sweater thing....
After all this work and it turning into an array of Easter wool... I want to cry!!!
So..as of last night I have decided I just can't continue with this sweater... At least not with these colours. I've decided that I'm going to put it off until I spin (yes...I'm going to go through all of that again) more yarn...and use dye that is much earthier than the Easter colours I wound up with this time.
As for this Easter yarn...I'm going to knit up a really cute little jacket with lining and maybe a hood... At least that's the plan right now.
