I Take it Back

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.

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.  🙂

What have you made recently?

  1. I am so glad you have been convinced – I actually really like that dark yarn. I suspect I would like it over dyed, as well, since I think some of the shading would be interesting, but I am pretty sure you will get other chances to over dye, right? 🙂
