Well, confession time for me! Since it’s only my second post, that didn’t take very long, did it?
As I have now hit a, um, “certain age” at which one may obtain a certain red card with letters that can be seen a mile away by my loudmouthed college student daughters, my hair has become grayer than I would prefer, thanks to said daughters. As a result, and the fact that I’ve never found a normal hair color to match my natural one, I now sport “colored hair” as in purple, blue, magenta and jade.
What I never expected after doing this was A) how much I would love it, and B) how much of my wardrobe I would have to throw out because it didn’t match my hair!!! My students let me know quickly that red and earth tones are not my friends (I’m a humanities professor, specializing in art history), lol!
Long story short, I’m having to dip into the stash to find colors that don’t clash with my hair, so Elsebeth Lavold’s Silky Wool in jewel tones is happening. I actually thought I knew Intarsia, but evidently I had NO clue about it! Figures! I have had a blast with figuring it out, though, and what do you know? It works, pretty much…!
The adventure continues, though!
