      It’s Fri-yay and we’ve been relatively quiet so I’m gonna a question. What other colors were dyed with sprinkles? 🤔
      Shown here are Dragon Droppings Wine and Nosegay 2101 with Sprinkles. So fun, right? Please show photos of your spools or stitched samples, thanks!

      I remember those….and I never bought any. 🙂 For some reason, they didn’t appeal to me and I wanted to spend my $ kitting up all the Scarlet Letter charts I had. Those many charts are still waiting on me to pay attention to them….

      @lyarrow Yarn with sprinkles was all the rage for knitters last year or so too. I hope I can use these minis to stitch something up soon, waiting to be inspired.

      Dragon Droppings Wine – never seen it before and I thought I had all of the versions!

      Here are two versions I have.

      Stitched sample:

      And I rescued this one from the silk garbage bin at the factory.

      @ggggaea Dragon Droppings Wine. I guess I would describe it as peachy pink with splotches of red violet.

      @jcash I think @Veena wrote in her blog that Dragon Droppings never dyes the same every time so it would be cool to see what we get this round. Call it and I’ll claim some. 🤩

      It never dyes the same twice cause I mix dye with salt, and then sprinkle that over a base color. Dragon Droppings was Fagales as a base I think. Who knows what was the sprinkle color? Looks like a red, that was light so it peached out over the brown Fagales. And then of course blue… I almost think I still have that mix someplace…
      AB Under the Sea – anyone remember that?!?! That was a sprinkle color too.

      I’m envisioning a green base with sprinkles so when you stitch grass it looks like a meadow of wildflowers. What do y’all think? Should we call it Garden Sprinkles?

      You are SO good Barb! Those are the pures so they won’t split in a sprinkle!! When I ask for this again please tell me again. Cause old brain.
      Green would be a great base for flower sprinkles.

      dragon droppings

      far left (jumbo) is a unlabeled mystery (Vikki playing?)

      second left (jumbo) was simply labeled dragon droppngs (Wine version perhaps?)

      top 2 minis: were labeled Dragon Droppings Remake – Fagales 4457 with Jadeite, Yonder Blue, and OMG Red

      top right 2 minis: Veena created

      bottom 2 minis: are Veena’s dumpster diving rescue (Green dragon Droppings)

      UGH, not the best day for taking photos.

      I also have the jumbo spool like Barbara does on the left of her picture and I have it noted as Confetti. I did a project with it and it turned out great.
      If I can get a decent picture of it, I’ll post it later.

      Oh my!! I missed a LOT staying off my phone. I was opening and sorting 3 orders of Vikki silk… plus a lot of other crap I should have put away as it came in… 😂😂


      @sims
      @veena @handdyedfibers_l7nu4k -Vikki

      So this is the color I’m calling…pic from a gal on FB. Dragon Droppings What??? I can’t tell if it has blue… I see a few specks but also purple so maybe the blue hit the dark red and turned purple??? You guys tell me what this was called…. and I will call it!
      PS: can I call the AB Under the Sea??? It’s fabulous for grass! All that dimension!!

      @Jcash I don’t think all of them have names but most were called Dragon Dropping <descriptive color name> so you might just have to see if the colors in the photo sample can be replicated.

      Here are my sprinkles.

      I think this is the original one. @handdyedfibers_l7nu4k can confirm. I love it because the sprinkles blend in so well.

      Bluer DD:

      On the left below is Kodiak Bear 5121 with multi sprinkles. On the right are minis from the rescued cone I showed few days ago.

      @veena
      …All gorgeous!!! The one I want most is the original one. In the line with Dragon Opal, Dragon Toes, Dragons Breath etc. It’s on the HDF list.
      On the FYI disclaimer….I was thinking way ahead. It will have to be called with a disclaimer! Something along the lines of…..

      **Due to the unique way this style of color is dyed, the result is always a bit of a mystery. Understand that Vikki will work towards a certain color scheme but it is never guaranteed to look the same twice.**

      I’m still working it!

      @jcash ref disclaimer… 🙂 *giggle*

      This is why I always grab 2 minis when ordering a DD. If I love it I’ll never be able to recreate it. And talking someone out of a mate is next to impossible. *ROFL*

      So keep in mind… only 10 matching minis are (guaranteed?) in that hank. *yikes*

      @luv2stitch2… Oooooh… did not think about that!! I know I want at least 3 of original DD.

      So what does everyone think of the disclaimer?? It will be Vikki’s final say since I don’t want to put her in any weird situation with a buyer. But I know if you don’t say right up front…”hey this is an experimental color… don’t get ya knickers in a knot if the colors aren’t exact” Fair Warning… you might have issues with The odd buyer.

      @jcash My notes say “44Mamaw’s” version was:

      Fagales 4457 with Jadeite, Yonder Blue, and OMG Red

      See how different my minis appear compared to Veena’s? (Personally I think the different DD’s are a fun hoot!)

      I love all the versions!! Your version above is what made me think of Halloween! I see pale cream with a pale peachy orange and black or dk purple. I just thought wow halloween-ish color.

      Maybe better to just call them by
      DD original
      DD Green
      DD Wine
      DD Blue
      DD Kodiak Bear 5121 base


      @handdyedfibers_l7nu4k
