There has been so much experimenting with dyes and formulas over the kettle lately that I’m beginning to think that the Halloween witches behind their bubbling cauldrons got to look that way because they didn’t wear a respirator while concocting their brews.
Thank goodness for anti-aging creams!
Here is a new colorway I have come up with this week–Chestnut. It’s funny (only afterwards, though) when I have a plan for a colorway and it fails horribly in the pot, only to end up something very cool. This reminds me of chestnut hunting in Germany. This time of year lots of people would walk the path of the Philosophenweg (Philosophers Way) in Heidelberg and pick up any tasty looking chestnuts to roast for later. It just screams cozy to me, not to mention makes me miss Heidelberg a lot.
I’ll also be dyeing up some more Merisilk DK in Dark Hearth and I’ll load it up to the shop once it’s dry.
