I've spent a good two hours tonight creating this:
It's a color card for my Oregon vest. Can you imagine how awful it would be if I lost track of which color is which? I shudder to think of it.
Each skien came with a beautiful little card attached to it that had its color name. As you can see, the names are very imaginative and poetic, but not necessarily descriptive. Red deer is red, which is good, but sea ivory is green which bad. Golden plover is golden (good), Erica is purple (bad). And don't get me started on Selkie versus Kelpie!
As I wound each skien I removed its little tag and attached it to a zip lock baggie, into which I placed the yarn cake. I've heard that it is not good to store wool in air tight bags, but as I intend to start this soonest, I don't think it will do any harm.
I found a Knit Along that I just had to join, Fair Isle February. Seems like fate doesn't it? Well, God is in the details and I'd like as much help with this project as I can get. A little divine intervention couldn't hurt.
