This is such a fun colorway but one with some meaning too. I dyed half of It's Complicated a a dark gray with streaks of black. I left the other half white but added a multitude of different colored speckles.
The idea for this colorway came after taking the time to scroll through my Facebook feed and seeing so many different perspectives about the current situation in the world. There are a few things that are truly "black and white" in this world, but very few indeed. I have found over the years that most things are a little more complicated, and the world would be a better place if we would take the time to listen to different people's perspectives. That's what this colorway is all about.
It's also going to be so much fun to knit or crochet or weave with! Depending on your pattern, you'll get thin stripes of black followed by thin stripes of white with all the speckles.
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.
The last photo shows a little swatch I knit up using It's Complicated.
It's Complicated on Sock Perfection
450 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
80% extra-soft superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
It's Complicated would look fabulous with Party Like It's 2021 and Complications as a fade.
