If you've been reading my blog for much time at all, you know that one of my obsessions is replicating the rich colors of aged patinas in my yarns. I love weathered woods and old bits of metal that have take on the patina of time. My favorite of all is copper, as it takes on a patina with age. One of my original colorways was based on an old copper mailbox.
Recently, I've been doing the Copper Patina colorway again. I decided to try it on a new yarn, the seacell/merino blend called Sea Wool, a sock yarn. The result made me very happy.
