It’s a fresh renewal of colouring that reminds me of spring with Easter baskets and even those sugar hearts with cute sayings on them. I decided to experiment with Red Heart Super Saver Ombre in 4 tones.

This is the Spring Study of Texture Ombre Blanket.

What is unique is that each ombre has 5 shades within one ball. With using 4 colours, you can see 20 shades in all.

I let the colour transition on their own as the balls were used. For example, where I left off on pink, I picked back up at the same spot when pink was used again. I found myself engaged in the nature of the stitching watching the colours form their own colour story.
