colour experiments

I took this photo on New Year's day in the Peak District. I love some of the ice crystal shapes (click to make it bigger). I also like the colours and decided to try and make some fibre based on them.

I like blending a little silk into merino wool. I've got two colours going onto the carder here, beansprout and natural white, trying to blend the silk in well while keeping the colours separate.

Here's the finished fibre. Comparing it to the original photo, I think I need to darken the green a little.
