Girl with a Pearl Earring was inspired by the Vermeer's painting by the same name. I dyed half the skein dark gray and the other half in gold, orange, blues, and red.
I dyed it on Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

Girl with a Pearl Earring would look great with Renaissance Blue or Cherries Jubilee.
The last photos show a hat I knit up in this colorway using Buttery Soft DK. 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, the yarn base, and even the individual skein.
