Thank you sooooo much, yes, it is "this site", I am a member of Raverly but have never looked at their forum.
Thanks also for the other sites you mentioned.
You are more than welcome.
I am planning to knit a nativity for Christmas. I want to use Palette and have a question I hope someone can answer.
What color would be appropriate for a Caucasian flesh tone?
That's a tough one, Faith. All the peachy/coral/pinky colors are way too dark for skin tones. I think the one that would best represent a caucasian flesh tone is Oyster Heather. But it would only be a representation, since this is definitely an off white color. You might try dyeing it in a little bit of strawberry/lemonade mixture of kool-aid to achieve the right color. If you don't want to experiment with the dyeing yourself, I could try some out for you.
Faith, I have a Christmas stocking that I do. It is extremely hard to find flesh tones in most yarns. I was fortunate enough to find a Jo Sharp DK weight that is perfect but it was discontinued years ago. I suggest you think about looking into tapestry yarns. There is a much wider selection of flesh tone colors. This was one of my options until I found this Jo Sharp. I think it would probably work well with Palette.
Thank you for the suggestions. I think I will try tea dying the yarn. I made a doll a while back and used cream yarn. I then buffed mineral makeup into the finished doll. It worked really well, but it is a bit unconventional. The thing is, I got the right color and was able to pink up the cheeks a bit.
Because the mineral makeup was pure pigment, it didn't transfer to your hands when the doll was handled.
I just feel like this is such a goofy method. I am a bit of a purest when it comes to knitting....maybe I should just go for it, and call myself revolutionary!! LOL!!
Hi! I made a lil cuddle sack for a baby shower, and a hat and working on the blanket now, but my question is, will the girl know what the cuddle sack is or should I print off a small picture and pin it to it? I dont want to be embarrassed with her asking what it is.
Mary, very cute baby sack. Do you have a doll you could place in it? Just a thought.
I wished I had one to see how the fit would be, but I do not. What were you thinking? :)
Chances are real big I will send the gift off and not be able to attend.
I forgot to say thank you. :) Thank you.
I was just thinking if you could present it with a doll in it, she would definitely understand how it works. You might want to find a picture with a baby in one.
