Kathrine Tyrrell has recently published on Making a Mark some great posts on a colour and colour wheels as she has been developing a matrix of theories about colour space and in an earlier post Kathrine wrote a colour round up. Related to this is yet another article Hues – a systems perspective. Each piece has links and further references so they really are worth exploring and thinking about.
As people know I am on a self imposed fiber diet but yesterday “Fiber Day” was held at the bus depot markets and I lashed out. Believe it or not all of these silk yarns I will use as embroidery threads and in the past I have used up skeins just like this! They are skeined and dyed for weavers but years ago I found often weavers yarns were ideal to stitch with. I also purchased some undyed yarns for my next dye pot.
On another note, thanks for all your well wishes while I was away. Mum is now no longer in critical care but moved to high care. She will not come out of high care and the doctors can not do anything more for her other than make her as comfortable as possible. So for us it is a sad time. Probably the yarn is a sign of ‘comfort’ shopping.
