it’s an illusion!

It’s a little cooler today, so I’m hoping to do a little more crochet than over the past few days. I’ve definitely been confined to just making a couple of square! So, to celebrate I’m trying out a new – to me – yarn.

Misty by James C Brett

This colour way is a light blue with hints of grey flecks, it comes in 8 shades altogether, the flecks bring more apparent in some. I have really enjoyed using other James C Brett yarns, so I thought I’d give this a go.

It felt slightly thicker than the Stylecraft Special DK that I’ve been using recently so that what I used in my ‘test’.

Does the bottom square above seem bigger to you?

Well! It must be an illusion caused by the lighter colour. They are identical in size!

Experiment complete. Now on with the task in hand. I bought my yarn from Deramores, who stil have very good sales and offers. These will be coming to an end bey soon, but I may yet be tempted again.

I dye. Colour is my business and I using a variety of materials. I also enjoy enabling other creatives to enjoy their art. Crochet is one of my current means of expression. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
