NOW that the Tweedy Bird Cardi AND the Twoncho are finished, I can branch out over some new Horizons. Over the weekend, I fired up the DYEpot once again and put forth more skeins from my rescued eBay yarn.

I was going for the shade found in my favorite T-shirt and a shade of blackberry from my favorite commercial sweater. The burgundy is spot-on; the blackberry is a little light, but overall, it’s a done tonal match…

It’s amazing to me, with my photographic background how different color is when you mix pigments. My experience is in mixing light. I can walk into almost any space and tell you its color temperature.

I can’t tell you shade percentages.

Additive versus subtractive color spaces are two different beasts. I’m an Additive Amazon but a Sophmoric Subtractive.

Even after two workshops, I’m still crawling around sucking my thumb on this one – slowly, I’ve been able to garner some webbage info, but this has to be a hands on thing. You can only go so far without gettin’ DIRTY…
