Ohh so gradient!!

Yesterday I woke up and thought I should give gradient dyeing another go. I had done it before but the colours didn't turn out as bright as I wanted them to be. I was sweating all day at the dye pot, but I was really quite happy with the result. Planning on doing some more!

Purple Surprise :)

I wanted to recreate the recent so popular Vintage Rose, but my dark red which I mixed myself turned out to be purple. Seems that the best colourways are accidents. I guess that's why I love dyeing so much...;)

makes really a difference...

I decided to get some professional photo equipment so I can take pictures with a white background to highlight the colours of my wool and I am pretty happy how well it works, makes me wan to keep this yarn as I just adore these colours.
