Yup, that’s right. I’ve been in a blue and purple mood lately when it comes to dyeing and colours! I’ve create two new colourways with these colours and am quite pleased with the results.
The first colourway is called Rhapsody. I did it on a couple of different fibers but the one I am most pleased with was my new Amour Superwash Merino (Amour because I love how soft, supple and shiny it is and I love how brilliant the colours look on it!) The name Rhapsody is a little more random. I was singing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” while I was dyeing and thought what a cool name for a colourway 😀
So without further ado…Summer 2009s first NEW colourway:
Note the ice blue, bright purple, iris, black and a touch of natural for a wonderful contrast! I am so pleased with the way this colourway turned out!
Now for my second new colourway. This colourway is currently an Aran Yarn Club exclusive so it won’t be introduced into my mainstream colourways until January 2010, in which I can guarantee I will be dyeing it again at that time! 🙂
This colourway is called “Bohemian” (again, the Queen reference…songs in my head while dyeing creates some interesting results! I could have called it “5 Little Ducks” since that was the other song in my head but it just didn’t fit! LOL C’mon, you know the tune “5 little ducks went out one day, over the hills and far away, Father Duck said ‘Quack Quack Quack Quack’ but only 4 little ducks came back…” Ahh the influence of a 2 year old! It’s my daughters new favourite song!
Okay so back to the yarn….
Bohemian can be found in the Yarn Club Spoilers page (since I like to keep it hidden for those subscribers who enjoy the surprise! 😉 ) Be sure to go check it out! It’s pretty rockin’…
