A couple of months ago, Sheri from The Loopy Ewe contacted me about a special project. You see, over there at The Loopy Ewe, they have a select group of customers called Loopy Legends and Sheri asked us to dye up colors in their honor.
While we do custom colors for shops regularly. Most of the time the LYS owner has a pretty good idea of what they want for a custom color. We often start from their logo or shop colors. Sometimes we do team colors. Or they send in a photo for us to use as a starting point. Then we send them several samples and they pick the one they like.
This was a memorable request because we were basically let loose and told to go nuts! We were given very loose direction, “Here are the colors that go in this colorway – we’ll look forward to getting these in your interpretation of it.” They didn't want samples...we just got to play in the dyepots! I can't even begin to tell you how much fun it was.
There were twenty four colors in all. I'll give you a peek at three but you should really go take a look at them all for yourself on the Loopy Legends page.
This is MomSue's Yellowstone Sunset.
Linda's Antique Treasures
Amy's Double Play
I can't decide which one is my favorite. I'm leaning a bit towards Ronni's Jewel Box. Or maybe Debbie's Autumn Joy. There's always Wendy's Ferns and Toadstools....Help me pick! Which do you like best?
