I am so in love

I am so in love with these rovings I just dyed. I know I just posted about them and I am sorry to repeat myself again, but you didn't see ALL the photos, did you?? I wonder if I will always love looking at photos of colorful yarn and fibers. I can't even describe how they make me feel! I know I don't want my blog to become all about the etsy shop because I hate when I see that happen on people's blogs and for me it is just a way to continue being able to create these beautiful things. But its also my blog (blah blah blah!! LOL) and I can post about what I want to, right? I just don't want any of my readers here to think I have gone totally commercial and can't talk about anything else, or that I expect any of my new fiber friends to buy from me, because I simply don't! If I point you to look at the shop, it is just because I am so excited about what I have just created and I want to share my enthusiasm!

So hey, go take a look ok? And see some of the photos of the rovings I just put on there! OH WOW, such incredible fiber porn!!! It is HERE to make it easy for you.

Here are a few of my favorite new colorways. I sat down at Starbucks the other day and wrote out about 15 new color combinations I want to try in the next few dye sessions. A few of them I think are going to look incredible, I hope anyhow. If anyone has suggestions for color combos they like, I would love to hear them! I do use the color wheel and theory from painting classes, but I also use intuition a lot in picking out what colors might look best together. I am also over time going to analyze which color groups are the most popular. I can tell you already that YELLOW yarn is just not as popular as other colors. WHY? My guess is that it doesn't look good on a lot of people. But that is just a guess and what I hear from other dyers. Many have told me yellow does not sell.

Here's some of the latest colorways all which went into "the secret recipe book" to be repeated in the future. Some don't make the book!
Sherbert-----peach (custom blend dye), and pink--i love this one

Ocean Deep---lots of greens--lime,mint,forest and various shades of blue!

Cherries and Chocolates-I love this new Earth Color sent to me from Standard Dye Company..only I changed it a tiny is sort of a taupe color and I have lots of ideas for what it will look great with!

And Lipstick, a combo of bright reds, hot pink and magenta! I usually don't wear these colors of lipstick but there are occasions for it! LOL This one is going to look gorgeous spun and perhaps plied with something slightly different.

What is kind of cool is half of what I dyed is already spoken for!!!

Oh and this last one, I dyed seven of these to go into the spindle kits that are coming out soon....They have one ounce of white and one ounce of blue. It is amazing how much fiber that is for a beginner. Much more and someone would really get overwhelmed I think! I am not sure what to name this colorway? Any ideas?

Got to get some zzzzzzzzzzzz's. One more test and I am done with school! Then the focus is on more fiber, exercise and weight loss. These three things will become my life!

Good night.........

I just LOVE the lime! More of that :) And the peach/rose, of course.

I know I don't tend to buy yellow (but there are some great exceptions!) I don't now why, I think it is because it such a "light" colour, and I tend to go for darker ones. Yellow and red, though, great together!

Congratulations on almost being finished with school! It's the best feeling EVER!!!
