One of my very favourite games to play is matchy, matchy with all of the skeins of sock yarn hanging on the sock wall of colour in the dye barn.
I like seeing compliments and contrasts who wants to be fast tonal friends and how they all play together. If there is a specific project that has my attention or the attention of the knitter brain at large, well then all the better.
So… this evening I spent an hour putting together colour trios for our current obsession, the affection of colour. Here’s a few of them. I only used what was hanging there and we are a bit short since we are working on restocking the wall with the brand new larger skeins.

So much colour and so little time… I brewed up a whole bunch of new shaded solids today that we plan on having up by Friday. There’s a smokey beige and pale marine green that I’m so excited to see that, I think after I post this, it’s off to the barn to rinse them out.
