Candy Skein- Blackberry Fingering


After the popularity of the skein of yarn I showed for Dyeing for Fun Part 17 and my socks that I recently started, I decided to dye another skein of what I used to call Black Magic, but now call Blackberry. Each time I dye with black and break the dye, it looks different. This time, the tonal aspect is a little more even than my first skein. The underlying color is black and gray, but has heathered tones of purple and green. In my opinion, the pictures don't do the yarn justice, as it has trouble picking up the hidden colors in the skein.

  5. Sold? Well, that was fast. Don't go turning into some sort of US Wollmeise on us. ;) Or on second thought...

  7. Love the blackberry color! I just got my first order from you - raspberry sorbet - and am SUPER excited to begin working with it. As beautiful in person as I expected from the online photos. Great work.

  9. Oh, I love it. (and it's sold already?! go you!!) The heathered tones are delicious. I think this one might be more green than the one you're making into socks? (...or that could be my monitor.)

    Also, to reply to your comment on my post---I loved How to Train Your Dragon! I don't have a lot of patience for kids' movies most of the time, but I adored that one. So cute. Great story, and I loved the animation on the various dragons.

  10. Thanks Kathleen! This one is a little greener than the one I'm using for my socks. Good memory! Glad you loved How to Train Your Dragon. It's one of my favorites, as I mentioned.
