Here, the proof!
1Grey and red wrap...it's a huuuuge soft and warm wrap, made of pure merino wool with swilrls made of hand spun (by yours truly) red yarn.
2 Red shibori scarf: my first attempt with shibori dyeing...I left it quite simple, just some circles, and yet it didn't work in every circle. Some have a white middle some not... this was hand felted with white merino and bamboo and later dyed with "pagoda red" dye.
3 Yarndyefelt: lacking of a better name... this is a scarf, thin but long, which was again hand felted with white merino and yarn. Later I dyed it with tangerine orange, pagoda red and golden touch....or yellow :) Since it was the first time I was dyeing anything, it didn't quite work out the way I wanted because all the colors blended. I like the result though, there are lighter spots and darker ones but all in shades of red.
4 spinning: I recently bought some wool just to give spinning (drop spindle) a go... and that is the result. Not enough for knitting anything, but it will be used anyway...
None of these are completely done, so as I finish them, I will show you. Just a teaser this!
Red is my fave color (not too hard to notice) and such a hard color to photograph!
