I dyed Bedecked using a new dye technique, and when I finished dyeing it, my first thought was that it looked like all the beautiful gems like amethysts, rubies, sapphires, so I decided to name it Bedecked, thinking of the phrase, "Like a bride bedecked with her jewels" from Isaiah. That got me thinking of the glorious wedding between Arwen and Aragorn near the end of The Lord of the Rings, so there's a lot of imagery behind this colorway.
I created this colorway by dyeing most of the skein eggplant but leaving a section in the middle undyed and then filling it in with Burgundy Rose, Turquoise, Renaissance Blue, Lilac, and No Shrinking Violet.
I dyed it on my So Silky Sock Base made of 50% superwash merino and 50% silk. This is so lusciously soft!

437 Yards / 3.5 oz / 4 Plies

Bedecked would look lovely with Burgundy Rose, Turquoise, Renaissance Blue, and Lilac. It would also go well with Beautiful Universe or Party Like It's 2021.
The last two photos show a hat I knit from Bedecked on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
