Purples

Here are five of the little skeins I dyed on Saturday: These are the clearest purples in the set. They were made by mixing marine blue with magenta in increasing proportions. For the other three colour runs I used turquoise and/or scarlet as the primary colours.

Yesterday I mixed up some earthy oranges and yellows in the dye pot. Those skeins are on the line drying. Today, I need to do some tidying up--never as much fun as creating, but essential.

Love the colours. What are you going to do with them all? I'm thinking a domino knitted scarf perhaps?

They're captives until I've handed in my folio for the course--in February. Then they'll be free to become . . . something. Domino knitting is a good idea
