Too Much Fun - Color Mania!

It is amazing how excited I get over color and yarns. Really it is.

Can you see why I named this colorway "Bluebells?" See the flower followed by the yarn. Its not exact but finding names for various colorways is not always easy. If I create the colorway from the inspiration of a plant it is easier of course but if you are doing a bunch of dyeing it is hard to do that. Also, I need to very soon figure out how to use yahoo flickr to post photos so I can do them differently, like next to each other . I have seen others do that!

This one is called Rainforest. I really go for the greens myself and a few more are coming.. Lots more re-skeining to do but I can only do it in small time frames!

Just had to share my color mania! The possibilities are endless. I think I am going to do some interesting earth tone mixtures next time I dye. They aren't as colorful, but they go with so much and they are so pretty. I just need some new dyes. I am going to try a new dye company, Standard Dye. If you like dyeing, I highly recommend the Dyehappy list on yahoo. It is a nice group. There is another dye list, but it is too huge for me.

Happy Day

Very pretty. If we'd hurry up and get some flowers to bloom in Vermont, maybe I could be inspired, too!

*drool* a adore the bluebell colorway!
I've had one in my head just like that for blending...I just don't have the fibers on hand to execute it quite right!
