Color inspiration

I'm sensing a colorway coming on, but I'm still in the planning stages. To accomplish this, I'm thinking the blending will need to happen on the drum carder, not in the dyepot. If the red and green were to mix in the dyepot, I'd end up with a muddy mess.

In my mind's eye, I see a felted bag as the end result. Eh, this will take a while, too much standing involved right now.

Since I am camped out on the couch, I've been trying to do some knitting. I keep falling asleep though. Nothing much is getting accomplished around here!

You keep falling asleep when you sit down? Duh . . . this is supposed to be a clue, m'dear, that you NEED the sleep and should take this little window of opportunity to do just that as often as you can. It's called TAKING CARE OF ONESELF.

Z-Z-z-z-z-z. Go for it! :o)

My first thought was yummy rhubarb!!

I never noticed the colorway of rhubarb before, now I am going to notice and appreciate it.

What's with the not sleeping?

I agree with Mama Pea; SLEEP my dear, you need it I'm sure.

I like the rhubarb colorway. Cool.

Did that arrangement occur naturally? How beautiful! You and your mom have such a natural talent. Napping on the couch sounds lovely.

Annie said...

Sandy, yes, I was just chopping it to use it and I was struck by the beautiful color progression.
