I've always liked that phrase. But it's not one that applies to me...my past is pretty beige. But I do have a colorful present:
And here's a rainbow of color in the Antarktis shawl pattern:
Shoppel-Wolle Lace Ball and only used half of the ball. I will most likely wear it like this:
There has also been some colorful spinning:
Yarn Hollow in the Sun Salutations colorway. My intention is to use this for weaving.
As I was assembling this stuff, I noticed that orange keeps popping up in my projects in the last little while. Don't know what that's about.
While I was wet finishing the above skein, I was reminded of two other hanks of handspun that were less that inspiring in their colors. No before pictures, but here they are after a trip through the dyepots:
The skein on the right started out as a mottled sage green and is ~1000 yds. @ 3.5 oz., also merino wool. It went through a "marine blue" dye bath.
Again, these skeins will probably be incorporated into weaving.
So ....that's my colorful recent past!
