Thank you so much for the positive response to the new Mini sets and full size color sets. I have helped so many people pick out coordinating semisolids to match the sets for shawls, socks, and other colorful projects. It's one of my favorite parts of the job.
Picking out semisolids for a full-size set of Gasoline Rainbow
Scott started a new weaving project this week. Using a set of Vista mini skeins he did a direct warp with half of each color and then mixed up the warp threads when sleying the reed to give a blended effect. For the weft he is weaving one color and then when he reaches the end of a shuttle he alternates with the next color for a gorgeous blended effect. He's on his last color now and I am totally claiming this scarf as soon as it comes off of the loom.
I love color fading, or the process of blending 2+ colors seamlessly in to a project, but I need to force myself to use a better word. Not many customers want to hear their dyers say "Oh, my colors fade brilliantly" or "I have these great fading yarns". Yarns aren't supposed to fade! I hope my customers know what I mean when I say "fade"!
