|Two of the three Tables o' Yarn we could choose from to sample with|
I also explored the color red at some length, playing around with shifting the basic hue of a given red yarn by blending it with other colors, both in the weft bundle and, near the top of the sample, using tapestry techniques such as hatching and pick-and-pick. I had a particular piece in mind that I plan to start soon, and I believe I'm better equipped to choose the red for that piece now.
