As I didn't find what I was looking for in hand-dyed yarn, I decided to try and dye it myself.

I started it in this pot in my kitchen.  My wife,  Carla,  said to me "the soup will be blue". This was in 2004.

Working in a new color.

cumparsita_testWe needed a rouge red and dark grey so we decided  took inspiration on Tango music, because is a tipical color used by the Tango dancer, here in the Rio de la Plata. We named Cumparsita as the most popular song written by Matos Rodriguez an Uruguayan musician.

At the picture, you have some differents test colors.

If you will knit it, may be you can do it, to the sound of La Cumparsita.


You can listen the music here on Wikipedia

about the color's name II

Liquidambar  (#618 Twist)

A popular ornamental tree in North America, it is recognizable from its combination of five-pointed star-shaped leaves and spiked fruit. it Is a large tree producing a fragrant gum resembling liquid amber, whence the name.

If you find one and crumple the leaf in your hand, a nice fragant will be on the skin.

Fall colors are lovely and we were inspired by them.
