Dye-a-day #5: Cozy yarn for a chilly day
This is a chunky singles yarn with low twist, dyed in mixed blues, purples and greens. I've been working on some simple patterns in this yarn to showcase the lovely, saturated colours and squishy, warm texture. Watch out for neck warmers, fingerless gloves and perhaps a hat or two in the near future!
My partner, J, chose the colours for this one, so until it finds itself another name, this colourway is "J's choice". Oh - but the pink/yellow area at the top of the picture is one of those surprises that sometimes happens with dye - and all of a sudden, my manly man wasn't quite so sure he wanted his name associated with these colours, after all!
