"Lake Effect" hand dyed


New colorway "Lake Effect" and I've saved the "recipe". 


Actually, what I was trying to do is reproduce the pastels of an old batch I did years ago which I never did write down. But, the result of my experiment has colors that are much more intense, and I like it! So, calling this batch "Lake Effect".

Tatted necklace and earring set from an older batch of hand dyed thread. The pattern is my own, which I'm calling "Loopy", but I don't have it written down! I only got as far as naming a folder for it on my computer.

By the way, the spring concert I played cello in was a shining success! The community orchestra that I play with is the Wisconsin Intergenerational Orchestra (WIO), which has just been awarded a Creative Communities Grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board.

Fabulous colour thread, I have just come back from the Lake District and these colours remind me of Lake District.

Beautiful necklace

I think I might have some of that old color. I should use my hand-dyed threads instead of just admiring them. I can hardly wait for Lake Effect to arrive in my mailbox!
