- Filatura di Crosa "Superior" in periwinkle
- Jade Sapphire Cashmere/Silk in "Curacao"
- Orkney 100% Angora in pale mint
The doily (which I used as a leafy accent) is done with Jojoland 2-Ply cashmere in sage green. You can’t see them but there are little beads on the points of the doily where it is sewn down.
I admit it’s not flattering – making my head look like a giant beach ball – but it is warm, and i only plan to wear it around the house. Soft, too. The only possibly bad thing is that when I wear it, my eyes get a bit itchy. I really hope this is due to the angora – I know it’s not silk, and I REALLY, REALLY HOPE that I am not allergic to cashmere!
So, this was supposed to be part of that lime & purple thing I was telling you about…but, it’s too green, not limey enough. Today I’m overdyeing it. I’ll report back.
Ah, I also tossed this in the pot. It was on sale at Ben Franklin (20% off, cashmere & silk), so I bought it, but I don’t like the brown color.
Here is the finished yarn. All four skeins were done in a crock-pot bath of Gaywool "Aster" dye.
You can see that the Blue Heron yarn didn’t take up the dye as well as the Consonance. The green overdyed to blue – which is fine, and looks good as a variegation. I was hoping to be able to mix these two in a project, but I’m not sure that will work. Heck! Instead of four skeins that weren’t going to work in my projects, I have four skeins that aren’t going to work in ANY projects! Ah, you know me, I’ll think of something.
