I dye because I love playing with colour. And when I free myself from the (usually self-imposed) requirement to create a specific hue or shade, and instead just let myself be drawn into pure experimentation, I find real joy in the process.
Last week, I did just that. I created a basic colour recipe, and then tweeked it, and tweeked it again, and then once more… and dyed one skein in each, just to see how they’d come out.
Trade winds blow great ships across the sea, their sails billowing, their hulks lying heavy in the blue and green waters, laden down with trunk upon trunk of brightly coloured silk fabrics, and barrels filled with the warm shades of precious spices.
Because the recipes (and the resulting colourways) are so close, I’m going to choose only one colourway to dye for the shop in future. But… I’m not sure which one to pick. And so I’d like to ask you, dear readers, for your help. Which one would you pick? Please tell me!
And, just to add a bit of fun, I’ll give a $4 credit on your next order from SpaceCadet Creations to everyone who leaves an answer in the comments here before midnight on Friday. Howzat then? Sound good?
So, go on then! Tell me which colourway you’d pick!
