"Call me Ishmael. Some years ago--never mind how long precisely--having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world."
--Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
So begins what may well be the greatest American novel.
Call Me Ishmael is a somewhat more cheerful take on the narrator of Moby-Dick compared with November in My Soul. It contains white, several shades of blue, teal, and bronze. I included some color from each of the other characters as Ishmael describes them from his own experience
I dyed it on Squoosh DK, which is a wonderfully squishy and soft DK-weight yarn made of superwash merino.

The penultimate photo shows a great set of four colorways. From left to right there's Annunciation Blue, Call Me Ishmael, Copper Roof, and Turquoise.
I have included photos of a hat I knit in this colorway. It should give you an idea of how the colorway will work up, but keep in mind that how it looks will vary a lot depending on the pattern you use and the yarn base as well.
