I have been mulling over this quote from The Two Towers for a few weeks, trying to think of a way to use Galadriel's light as inspiration for a new yarn colorway. I chose to create a background of black for the dark places in which the phial is eventually used, and I decided to use all the ROYGBIV colors for the white light, because white light is made from all the colors and because I thought it would make really lovely yarn.
This decision actually caused quite a lot of controversy within my household with half of my family saying it made perfect sense and the other half saying that it the white light needed to be simply white.
A Light in Dark Places on Squiggle Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 Plies
90% Superwash Merino / 10% Nylon
Care: Hand wash cold and air dry.
A Light in Dark Places would look great with Burgundy Rose, Sunflower, Sage, Renaissance Blue, and Lilac.
I included two photos of a hat I knit using this colorway on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up. However, Wonderful Worsted doesn't have the same texture as Squiggle Sock.
