Last week's inspiration...

So last week's sudden excitement over dyeing fibre to match a rather gorgeous photograph of multi-coloured and curvilinear fungus has turned into this:

There's 200g of a gradient in each of these braids,and spun up they are going to mimic the colours in this photograph pretty well. Knitted up into a shawl, either a plain centre-increase garter stitch triangle, or something with wide sweeping Old Shale, it will imitate the fungus beautifully.


This is what it looked like in the dyepans. Nothing like my usual technique, and more time-consuming and fiddly than normal. But I got the exact effect I was aiming for, so all is good. 


The current five sets I have are all spoken for; if you're interested,
leave a comment.
