Blue.

Dear Caryn. 

I know I had you on blue yarn watch.  I know I asked you to intervene and steer me away when I try to beeline for skeins with bluesy names like chambray, denim, midnight, wedgewood, cobalt, nantucket, azure, ultramarine, cornflower, and cerulean.  I could go on, and often do, but that's enough for now, right?  Because you know and I know that there is not a solitary shade of blue yarn that, once created, I won't feel compelled to stash.  I love blue yarn beyond reason. 

But guess what?  I picked up some skeins recently that weren't blue.  They were devoid of blue, in fact.  They were white.  Too white it turns out.  So they...and I...and my dyepots...well, we intersected.  And now, you guessed it, they are blue.  We blue addicts are sneaky.

I love this. The yarn and the post (and I don't even knit but I love blue, too).

As a fellow blue addict, all I can say is WOW! What a beautiful blue! What type of dye are you using?

OK - that yarn is absolutely beautiful! You just might convert me!
I'm still happy to monitor your blue intake if you watch my red/pink intake...

Love it, Sandra. So pretty!

Thanks for the blue yarn love! Lissa: Most of my dyes are Sabraset dyes but I also have some ProChem colors. I don't really know enought to be a die-hard of one brand over another, but I'm happy w/ both so far. I will say that I was thrilled w/ Sabraset's black--heavily diluted, it gave me those pretty silver tones :).

Beautiful! And that's coming from someone who never wears blue.
