Ocean theme yarn WIP


Ocean theme yarn WIP

And on to the next work in progress! I am finally getting around to making a few of these yarns which have been in the planning stage for ages. This seems to happen to me a lot, I have a good idea, start collecting all the little tidbits and then there is something stopping me from finishing.

With 'lady in red' I had the problem that I couldn't seem to be able to dye the right shade of red, it always ended up being pinkish. :(

With this ocean theme yarn (just a working title, for sure!) I picked up the most gorgeous ittle sea shell and fish beads but didn't really have anything else to go with it. Well, a recent huge bead order definitely put an end to this and since I already had a nicely dyed shade of blue Merino/silk I went straight to work.

Often it seems a shame though to use these pretty beaded strands in yarn, they would make great necklaces and bracelets, too! :D

Thanks Shell :D
By now I do have quite an impressive collection of rocailles, lol.
