And the colour is..........

Me and Stella were overwhelmed with the response for the colours. I really like the greens and blues. Stella was loving all the vibrant combinations. We were really stuck for choice.

I came home tonight and wrote all the colours suggestions down. Then my 8 year old picked one out the bowl.....

And it was none of the colour choices we had discussed LOL. It was Monets Waterlillies. I love and know the painting but really had no idea what colours were involved. So Stella and I have looked on the net at the pics. AND for the colours are
Greens
Blues
Purples
Pinks

So we have 4 colours and a painting to use as inspiration. How fab is this! Great thing is it seems to have everyones colour suggestions nearly.

My fleece is clean and ready to go, so the weekend will see the start of the challenge. Let the BATTLE COMMENCE.

A huge thank you to Daneen for your suggestion. PLEASE REMEMBER TO COMMENT FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN THE FINISHED YARN!

PMSL sorry, Daneen I knew it was you, had Monet on the brain. After trying to work out what colours I was looking for. Do you agree with the colours was that what you was thinking. (edited it, I should read before posting) lol

Zoe-the shea buttah took tons of experimenting like a mad scientist-I have sensitive skin and so did my daughter-most lotions and creams have alcohol, which dries out skin. My hands were a mess from using wool and it literally "sucked all moisture from them", so I played around with ingredients, had to be all natural and came up with my secret recipe about 5 years ago. Found a great place for my oils and have been making it since. I used to just sell it on my site, but recently started on etsy and it's been a big hit, especially with silk spinners.

and yes, those were the colors :)

The colours and inspiration are great, these together with the play of light and dark should be fun to play with. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

lol do you like them?

I do believe this will make a lovely hat or gloves, could you spin it fingering weight (4ply). Obviously, this is based on me being the lucky winner ... you never know!
