Krystle's new threads are so pretty, I wanted to use them right away. I needed to choose a pattern that would be enhanced by the subtle shading of a hand-dyed solid. I went with my "Angels in the Snow".
This is done in "Wine Berry". Just look at those patches of more and less intense color.
Jane Eborall's Joseph Motif. Hmm, maybe I should have blocked it before I put it on the scanner. The threads are "Of Berries and Fairies" and "Fairy Faint". This was a bit of a challenge only because I vastly underestimated how much thread I would need for the outer round and had to keep adding thread to the second shuttle. I really like the way the colors came out.
