New Dye Progression Follow Up

Hello All,

Here is the shawl made with the last progression dye that I showed you.  This was knit by my friend "Nannette the Nanny".

 Dosen't she do fantastic work......

 The progression itself turned out very well.  I'm happy with the amount of each color and how they slowly melt into the next one.  She was happy with the color changes and the "Folk Art" colorway.

I'm REALLY looking forward to wearing this.  Thanks again to Nannette.  I look forward to sending her more to "test knit" for me.  I've sent her a teal grey and black progression for all of her work.  I hope to be able to show off some pictures of what she makes for herself soon.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

NEW Color Progression Dyeing!!

Hi All!

Remember the warping board?  Well this is the first of many new progressions to be skeined up on the New Warping Board!!

I have called the colorway "Folk Art".  My monitor shows pretty well the color changes.  I even like the color accuracy.

This cupcake will be sent to that friend Nanette, let's see what she says about the yarn and the dye job!!  This is 800 yards of fingering/sock weigh yarn.  It is a Superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon mix.  It is the base of our Saunderstown line.  See the shop for other colors.
