A Gray Day becomes A Dark & Stormy Night
I have some yarn in shades of blue for Margene in case she wants to start Knitting the Weather, or something, next month... or sometime. I wanted to add some shades of gray before sending it, though, since both Utah and Wisconsin have their share of gray winter days.
I made gray; but, because I still underestimate the potency of black in the dye pot, as established yesterday, what I intended as representation of A Gray Day turned into A Dark & Stormy Night.
Me: I love *that* -- which could be anything, or maybe not even a thing... the more ridiculous whatever it is, the better.
Sharon: Do you want to marry it?
What is it about this yarn?? I guess with the absence of color, it's all about shade and value, texture and sheen, complexity and layering. My boring, neutral, black/gray yarn... It just takes my breath away!
I'll be soon heading back to make A Gray Day.
