This yarn was inspired by Sara Crewe, the main character in the wonderful children's classic, A Little Princess. In spite of her own deep sorrow and hardship, she manages to bring joy to those around her. This colorway is dedicated to all who have managed to do the same in spite of--or perhaps in light of--their own sorrow.
The yarn contains several shades of moody blues and mournful violets but has a section of bright cheerful fuchsia right in the middle of it.
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique.

A Little Princess would look great with Annunciation Blue, Burgundy Rose, and Epiphany.
I have included two 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.
