After waffling about whether or not I wanted to try this color scheme I’ve been toying with, I finally bit the bullet and used some superfine Merino to test dye (sometimes exhaustion lends you just enough crazy). I have to confess I adore it. It’s called “Mango Punch” and I’ll be tinkering with the colors and amounts more in the future, as I’d like to make it my first signature roving colorway.
I also played with getting multiple tones out of a one color + silver dyes in Marsala:
My Mandala Top pattern still yields me lots of color therapy – I just worked up with autumn-toned version in size small with some extra flounce added to the bottom. It reminds me of browned leaves falling to the ground. Can you tell I have a forest obsession? I have a forest obsession.
