I’ve always loved the colors gray and red together. Red is such a great contrast color for any kind of gray ~ light, deep, charcoal, black.
You know I’ve been having fun with speckles, and experimenting with different dye methods even within the speckling realm. This is another of those experiments: softly variegated base color with just one color speckled on (or two, this is actually a deep red and a brighter red in combination).
I love this so much, I can’t even tell you. It’s deep, and spooky, and elegant all at the same time. This photo is of Embers and Ashes dyed on Verdande, and oh, boy, it’s even more fabulous in person. It will make its debut at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival, and I know it’s going to be a colorway staple for me for a long time to come. So, look for it online after the Festival! On it’s own for sure, and most likely with a whole kit designed around it. I love it that much.
Damon from Vampire Diaries is a little bonus. He popped up in my photo search. He’s such an adorable bad-guy-turned-good-guy-but-is-he-really? character. He was my favorite part of The Vampire Diaries (Yes, I admit it. The Vampire Diaries is one of my dirty little secrets. I loved that show, and True Blood, too). This colorway feels a little bit Halloween-y, a little bit vampire-y, and a whole lot elegant and classy.
