Painted Threads

I started with the pink perle cotton, because I had a cone of it in machine knitting yarn. I added blues to get the blend using Colorhue. In later experiments, no matter what I colored it with, it came out in this blend. There must be a finish on the yarn, so I'll try something else to change it. I'm more likely to use the thread for stitching than knitting, so it would be nice to have a color range-only so much pink can be used.

Thanks for everyone comments. DH had cataract surgery this week, so I've been playing nurse. Men need more TLC,

Hi Sandy, hope your DH is feeling better. Love your bead journal quilt from your last post. I've got rather behind on my journal quilts.
