some more blues had finished. I made more indigo blue squares so totally the indigo (dark) blue squares are now like 8-9of them.
then i bought 1 more blue (it'sdarker then the medium blue shown here) but lighter than indigo. It's like good nice blue jeans. I havent put this blue in this pictures.. he.. he.. lazy me..
Actually last month (*gasp*.. time flies isn't it), i played around with the cotton thread and did some dyed.
I was planned to dyed using turquise blue, orange and olive green on these cotton thread.
There were 6 skeins, so 2 blues, 2 olive greens, 1 orange and 1mixed blue-orange.
and here were the result:
and i think it's quite bulky since I could use the 6mm knit needle to make stockinate stitch. Got to make some improvement on the st st...
As for the olive-green, thre resulted was very suprised me that it looked like old grey instead of olive green. Check this out:
Wonder it can be that way, since i put enaugh dye powder, same tap water, same boiling pot and same period of boiling time...anybody can help? I understand that for cotton, the result could turned out more pale but not like this...another closer look:
So, finished with blue, welcome JULY, welcome VIOLET.
I feel violet is more romantic word than purple.. ;)
As for the squares, from this VIOLET theme too bad I can only found 2 colors...THIS and THAT
I am very suprising when working with THAT skein coz it feels very smooth and soft, unlike with THIS skein it's very acrilicky
and quite rough.
With only 2 colors for my squares, that means I can continue my kiri shawl which is using the japan yarn, the color is like LAVENDER, that suit with project spectrum theme this month.
I am thinking to knit a tank top too, still have few skeins from my lavender cardigan that I finished couple months ago. The yarn is Schachenmayr Princess... He.. he.. so much things on my list and so little time to do...
As for all AMERICAN,
