This is one of the few batches of yarn I've dyed that started with an inspiration photo that I took at the beach and posted on Instagram. I've included the photo here, even though if you look at it you may wonder why the colors aren't truly close to what the eye sees. This is because I took a great deal of liberty in my choices of what to bring forward and what to leave behind. Additionally, the kettle always has something to say about the outcome as well. So here we have it; a collaborative effort that in my estimation pays off beautifully.
