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 colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a smooth, soft 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.
