Today there will be an update at 1pm est. On the menu today is all Tender. Tender is our non-superwash merino. It is soft and fine and super squishy.
A lot of the colors come out a lot paler on this base. The superwash wool absorbs color faster and more vibrantly while the non-superwash tends to create more pale tones. These colors remind me a lot of Japanese colors. The pink, purple,blue,green, and grey in particular. Something about them just scream Japan! I would totally expect these colors to be on Japanese handbags! I hope you will enjoy this update! And let me know if you would like to see any colors in particular!
So recently my son has taken to playing Child of Light. It was a long time ago when I played it and beat it and forgot just how beautiful the world is. I definitely want to take a break from playing Overwatch to replay Child of Light, or just play a little after game gameplay. Here is one picture from the video game.
This brings me to what I am struggling with. I have not had a lot of interest in my yarn. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated! The struggle is I really want to do a series of yarn based on the world in Child of Light (and other colors too!), but if my current yarns do not sell then I really can not invest in more yarn that does not sell. I really want to dye new colors, but as of now my next updates have all been dyed up and they are mostly solid colors as the Tender base does not speckle consistently. So what can do? HELP!
I have been soooo busy with back to school! My little guy started his second year of PreK. Last year was a total nightmare and this year seems to be sooo much better. It helped that we changed schools. He only goes 3 days a week and he is very busy the other 4 days at home (are all 4 yr old boys absolutely crazy??) Anyways I finally got some time today to get an update together! 8 colors of Adrift!
Colors are bottom row first : Sunburnt (new a bright hot pink tonal), Lobstah, Cliffside Rose, Goldfish ( new a bright yellow with some peach undertones), Radioactive ( new I wanted to name it mutant fish lol! it is bright green yellow), Frozen Bay (new a lovely shade of muted blue green that reminded me of when the bay freezes), Hydrangea (new and what can I say we have sooo many of these plants around!), and Heather (new, a color you will find on many seasides growing wild!).
I hope you enjoy all these new colors! Next week I am planning a Tender (non-superwash Merino) update that will have some of these same colors!
I hope you enjoy and if there is color you are dying for (lol) just stop on by the ravelry group and let me know!
I have been so busy with back to school and the joy that comes with that! My son started another year of PreK and is going 3 days a week this year. As soon as he started we all got sick! Lol. Anyways there are 4 new colors going up today!
