In the Queue

These two, laid out on the studio floor, are in the queue to be wet-finished. I think Blue Bayou is one of my favorites on this warp.

I'm wondering why the poppies aren't brighter - the orange yarn I used was pretty close to a dayglo hue. I suspect that the blue and dull olive green yarns, which show up as almost subliminal flecks in the orange areas, may be responsible for dulling and browning the bright orange. One of the unintended side effects of using complementary or nearly-complementary colors, I guess. Perhaps if the orange were a thicker yarn, so its floats covered the flecks of blue and green better, it would stay bright. Must test this theory...
