Yesterday I spent the day (12 hours) dyeing wool for Satu and then cutting strips and organizing my colors.  My color plan is to go grey and green for my cooler colors and golden orange and maroon for my warmer colors. 

Cool colors: 115 Milk Weed; 150 Gray Lichen; 123 Shades of Dusk; 106 Moorland Moss; 158 Will 'O Wisp

Warm colors: 104 Somerset Sunset; 157 Sunkissed Gold; 121 Toadstool; 124 Rose of Sharon

Today I transferred the pattern on to my linen backing.  Because of the size, this took another 2 1/2 hours.  I also color coded the transfer so that it will be easier for me to find my place on my visual.  The pen colors are coded to the value zones.  Between the lines and the zones, I should not get lost as often!

Total time on the project so far: 18 1/2 hours.
