they say that

taking a black & white photo

will give you a good idea of whether

the yarns you’re considering will ‘pop’ enough

when you mix them together for colorwork, or not so much.


above is my shot at knowing.

4 worsted wt yarns (thanks in the loop!)

set in the southern sun of my kitchen windows.

now you’ve seen what i’ve seen, so what would you mix together?


do you want

to try to guess what the actual colors are?

i’ll give you a hint.  the darkest one is actually true black…
