Mango Punch, Etc

After waffling about whether or not I wanted to try this color scheme I’ve been toying with, I finally bit the bullet and used some superfine Merino to test dye (sometimes exhaustion lends you just enough crazy). I have to confess I adore it. It’s called “Mango Punch” and I’ll be tinkering with the colors and amounts more in the future, as I’d like to make it my first signature roving colorway.

I also played with getting multiple tones out of a one color + silver dyes in Marsala:

What else have I been up to? Lots more playing with color in these hooded cowls (for which I am working on a pattern!)

The cowls themselves are both available right now in my Etsy shop. If you’d like to get notified when the pattern becomes available, make sure you subscribe to my blog or follow me on Facebook!

My Mandala Top pattern still yields me lots of color therapy – I just worked up with autumn-toned version in size small with some extra flounce added to the bottom. It reminds me of browned leaves falling to the ground. Can you tell I have a forest obsession? I have a forest obsession.
