So a majority of the mini-skeins I am using for this project require some serious sleuth work to figure out the color way name. Lots of mini-skeins sellers don’t include this infomation, but I do plan to ask for it in the future, if possible.
I am having the most difficult time figuring out some of the Rhichard Devrieze colors. Most of them can easily be identified on his website, but I seem to have a few discontinued ones as well, I believe. And then the nature of hand dyed yarns doesn’t necessarily lend itself to the yarn in hard looking exactly like the yarn on screen. So there is some guesswork involved.
I am in the habit now of bookmarking vendor websites with great pictures that can offer a variation than what is on the original website. In some cases, there are knitting samples and I can easily compare my hexipuff to the colors on screen. Just tonight I had to revise the colorway of one of my earlietst puffs because it was clear that I had selected the wrong one.
All of this led to me realizing that there is a benefit to keeping the original picture that I took of the hexipuff as well. It will make altering the text on the picture that much easier. So another step has been added to the process, but I think it will be worthwhile for odd moments like the one I encountered today.
