To anybody who follows me on IG - I apologise for the repeat photos. I find that IG is easy for sharing in the moment and when I do finally get to the blog I repeat myself photographically. I like utilising the square shaped photos - already cropped and sometimes (hahhem) digitally enhanced in colour. Most of the time I leave my photos in their natural state because I like to try to represent true colour. If I have played with the photo it is generally to give truer representation of colour than what I was able to obtain photographically. Does that make sense?
So back to this blogpost. My previously dyed - eco dyed wools have been screaming at me for attention. I have tried to ignore them as I plod along and make my socks that I started months ago. I have actually made two socks, but of course they dont match? How is that? Well, silly duffer here, picked up the wrong colour purple and made two striped socks with differing hues of purple. So now I have two more socks to make to make two pairs. (Photos another time)
Tantalised as I was, it wasn't until I spent the day in bed fighting off a sore throat and headache that I decided to crochet with my eco dyed yarns.
Once I started I couldn't stop. Well I did to do the shopping and stop and have a coffee with mum and dad (but I did take my crochet as you see below) Talk and crochet go well together.
A little break out in the sunshine to photograph my progress
And a day and a half after commencement I have gotten this far.
Whilst dropping my daughter off to work at the Edge cafe, I decided to stop at the beach for a quick pictorial snap.
The sandy tones meld in perfectly with the muted colours.
So my next question is... do I have enough wool to make a bag or do I stick with making a pillow or two.
If I make a pillow I really need to go one more row to make a 40x40 size...thats nine more flowers and matching squares or risk not making a complete bag in the yarns available. I could dye more yarn but it never works out the same colour twice...nature is funny that way with eco dyes.
