Coffee, Black or With Cream

Back to work, with no cute furry distractions wandering in from next door.

All the silk sections are beamed. This is what was left from the 4 cones of silk. Looks like I rounded up the yardage numbers just enough!

At the point this picture was taken, I had just begun to go back and wind & beam the sections of shrinky yarn.

The silk sections are 30/2 dyed in the Lanaset "nut brown" dye, which gives a color similar to dark chocolate or black coffee in the deepest shades.

The shrinky sections are the late lamented merino/elite from Textura Trading. I have a few colors left; this one is sort of a tweedy cafe-au-lait color.

In case you're wondering, I gave my friend a choice between these chocolate/coffee hues, and the rust colors that were dyed with wood dyes then ikat-tied and overdyed back in early February. She preferred these, so that's what's going on the loom first. When this warp is done (it's only 3 scarves...) I'll beam the more adventuresome wood-dye warp.
