Dark and moody with pops of color is a good description for this colorway. This was one of the times when I created the colorway and then had to come up with a name. While pondering different ideas for the name, Flannery O'Connor's short story entitled "A Good Man is Hard to Find" popped into my head.
Like the colorway, it is very dark but with underlying humor like all of her short stories. Here's a link to it if you would like to read it.
The colorway itself has browns and grays along with muted purples, blues, and greens. There are also some pops of magenta.
I dyed this yarn on Squoosh DK yarn base using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique.
A Good Man Is Hard to Find on Squoosh DK
250 yards / 4 ounces / 4 plies
100% Extra-Fine Superwash Merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
A Good Man Is Hard to Find would look great with Eggplant, Lilac, Annunciation Blue, and Magenta.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up.
