Well, after overwhelming opposition to my negative opinion of my “oops” skein (from last post as well as Instagram), I decided not to over-dye. Looking at it Sunday morning with fresh eyes…I may have been wrong to judge it so harshly initially. I broke my own rule — appreciate it for what it is.
So now, my ‘Oops’ color-way has been re-skeined, and has a new name…say hello to ‘Celestial‘.
Upon second glance, I can see what everyone is talking about. The weird mix of jewel-tone colors over-layed with black does give this yarn a beautiful, space-like appearance — an effect that is enhanced even more by the sparkle in the yarn, (difficult to see in photo…).
I now officially renounce and retract my initial criticism…this is a gorgeous yarn. 🙂
In addition to this new one-of-a-kind beauty, I’ve also got several other new color-way experiments from this weekend that went waaaay right.
‘Anna‘ — Wanderer Sock
‘Sanderson Sisters‘ — Glitter Sock
I have to say, as much as I love Frozen, I’m just giddy about how ‘Sanderson Sisters’ turned out. I’m a 90s kid fo sho, and Hocus Pocus remains to this day one of my favorite Halloween movies. (I’ve watched it three times already this year. Shhh….)
Every once in a while, I get a little burdened by hand-dyeing yarn… It is a pretty high-maintenance process. But this past weekend, I had so much fun with it. I can’t wait to dye another batch. 🙂
