I do a lot of short run lots. One of a Kind type thing. I'll make 4-6 skeins in the same colorway so they match if making larger projects. But I'm finding it very hard to duplicate the exact colorway a second time especially if there's been a lot of time between dying. So, if ordering my yarn be sure to order enough for your project or talk to me about making the amount you need.
I've been experimenting with gradient yarns. These yarns change from one color to the next in larger lengths so you will get a design in your knitting, crochet or weaving. This variation was dyed on a knitted blank.
This gradient yarn is dyed from a cone of yarn without the plastic cone inside. These are both made with an 8/4 rayon, which is light fingering to sport weight. 1680 ypp
|Purple/Blue/Wine # 1|
This one has more of the turquoise blue, which blends with the purple to make blue and then the puple and wine are working together just beautifully
|This is the Wine/Blue/Purple Violet # 2 (SOLD)|
This is a wine color with the turquoise and a blue with the purple/violet
so it just has a it more wine than purple really
|Purple/Blue/Red Wine #3|
This combination has a redder wine color with the purple and the two blues

The clutter of this room depicts a place
Neglected colors hues and earth tones laid
Aside for contemplated use. Baskets
Of conventional stuff set in odd places, wheels
Half full with yarn that's dangling into the fuzz.
Oak baskets made by my own hands and that
Of the master craftsman grace this room's disarray.
Dried flowers yarn and seed await their destiny
Of useful purpose garden loom or wheel.
The state of clutter reflects my mind I reach
For glories neglected long ago. The tasks
Once left in search of knowledge laid temptingly
Before me by skilled hands far greater than mine.
And peace far stiller than any I had had. A home
Left in disarray far greater than my mind.
- long ago....needs a bit of updating, but
