The Creation of Tanyth Fairport

Nathan Lowell is one of my favorite authors. He creates characters that are so wonderfully complex yet seemingly simple; characters with subtle layers, with a richness yet a simplicity , about them.

Tanyth is my favorite. She is of the earth, browns and greens. There is a quiet strength to her and a spark as well (burgundy and gold). She is older and wiser with a gift of magic.

So for this yarn I didn't use a diagram. I made a list of dye colors I wanted to use and used a more primitive and random method of applying the dye. I let the yarn tell me what it wanted to be. And the results are pretty spectacular.
