I am so drooling over this colourway, it looks so different to other ones. I sold it to a good home but I can't wait to dye one for myself to knit with and of course on beautiful Cestari!

I don't know why I had this colourway so long in my head...
I just know I need to try it and I was itching to do it.
In between several rainbow customs I squeezed this one in.

A combo of gold, olive, brown, crimson red , blues and turqoise.
At the end I knew there is still something missing so I added a patch of darker blue to give it the perfect touch.

I am drooling over it as I would like to keep it, but it has found a new lovely home already. I will dye some for myself and knit Jasie some lovely longies out of it

Boney rainbow!

After doing this custom below I thought it would be time to dedicated my passion to a blog.

Almost each of my colourway has a story to tell and even if it might be not very interested for other readers I would like to keep an online diary into my ventures of colours and wool! It is my first try of blogging so please be patient with me!

I love playing with colours, it was the best therapy for me when I had to experience last September my molar pregnancies and a D/C which followed.This blog will be a part of my healing journey as I feel better when I write things down! In my teenage years it helped me to get over failed love stories and other bad things what happened, of course I also shared good moments and happiness with my diary.

Sorry for rambling on lets dive into it....

Today I wanted to do a custom where I had to match this colourful fabric.
I had to postpone this dye job already so long because of all the gastros and cold over Xmas and New Year and I was also a bit scared if I would master to match the green perfectly. After a little arvo nap I ventured into it.
I love the challenge of dyeing from a pic and trying to match the colours!
Here is the pic of the fabric

I mixed a special green and that what I came up with

That's the rainbow feast I came up with! I think it matches quite well if I may say so....
