I've also spent the last few days dividing and skeining Blue. I'm about halfway through the second kilo now, and haven't made the labels yet, but this colorway is just too pretty not to share.
Although the cocktail for this month is called "Blue," the actual finished color of the drink is mostly a strawberry pink, a result of the pale blue of the blueberry liqueur mixing with the natural orange of the OJ. Since strawberry is also a dominant flavor in the cocktail, I made a soft pink a dominant color in this yarn. I also spent a long time experimenting with this one, trying to mix just the right shade of blue to represent the blueberry element of the cocktail, and I think I finally got it. It's a navy blue with faint purple undertones, almost the exact same shade as a ripe blueberry. The transitions between the navy blue and pink fade to this really lovely lavender color that reminds me of summer sunsets - very fitting, considering that this cocktail basically tastes like summer in a glass. I kept the orange and lemon yellow elements rather small, with a smooth gradient between them, further reinforcing that sunset feel.
Without further adieu, here are some pics of the yarn!
A close-up of the fiber - pink and blue dominate, with hints of lemon and orange to brighten things up.
The whole skein! Sorry for the lack of label, but I was too excited to wait any longer!
