There are days this time of year when tending all the dye pots feels untenable. Longing for an air-conditioned studio, but not willing to pack it up and find a cool lake to jump in, I’ve been using my time dyeing up some new offerings. No surprise I’ve created some of my hottest colors to date!
I’m just loving my Fire Festival fade set on Harbour Singles fingering which includes one full skein each of Tutti Fruitti, Marigolds and Saffron, Tropicale & Heat Wave (also available for individual sale). I liked it so much I added a set of five mini skeins. And since I couldn’t stop there, I added a fifth stand-alone color on Harbour, Confetti, the lightest of the bunch with just a hint of warm and cool yellow and magenta speckles.
Taking things in a much cooler direction, I’ve added a few new fade sets on Deep Sock-Klimtomania, inspired by one of my favorite paintings, Miss Emelie Floge by Gustav Klimt, and The Age of Ore built around one of my oldest and most beloved colors, A Knight In Tarnished Armour.
I’ve restocked a few of my other fade sets, including Deep Waters. Maybe that one will cool us all down!
