I went with the mission of picking out a colourway for the What the Fade MKAL coming up at the end of this month. The purples called to me and with some help fromJulie, I put this kit together. Using black and white photography, I ended up switching the last two skeins for a more totally accurate tonal gradation. I;m a bit of a stickler for fading from dark to light ... unless you're fading from one colour to another.
Then Julie walked away to help customers and this one just sort of happened.
It may not end up being a What the Fade, it may be another fade or just stash, but I love them.
This single skein of Hedgehog sock caught my eye - fairly screams Gryffindor, yes?
I put these for skeins of Hedgehog Singles together.
Westknits is doing another MKAL come the end of September, and while he doesnt usually do fades, this caught my eye, but I managed to leave them behind.
My next project for Julie is a So Faded Sweater in a stunning green Merino Mia Gradient Kit from Prism Yarns I wound up the first few colours and got started straight away last night!
On my way home, I ended up here:
I always seem to end up at Krispy Kreme when I go to Julie's.
Since there was a Staples right there, I had the screen protector replaced on my phone. WOW!!! The original one was go cracked and abused that it's like having a new phone!! I also bought an external keyboard for the phone. I love it - it makes blogging so much easier!
I have taken my flute playing back up; it's been a year!! I have missed it and am enjoying the playing immensely. My teacher, Myrelle, had suggested that I record myself playing, mistakes and all, so I did.
This is my favourite song (that I know how to play) and it is not bad considering that I've been not playing for awhile. https://youtu.be/Tt5NnEllCgw
It will give me a baseline for measuring my improvement.
