The painting that inspired this yarn colorway is by Leonid Afremov, a late 20th century artist who used a palette knife and these amazing brilliant colors that are sort of reminiscent of pointillism. I actually created this colorway for my November 2020 club and decided to add it to the shop this year.
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.
Afremov's Farewell to Anger on Sock Perfection
Splashed & Speckled Colorway
450 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
80% extra-soft superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Farewell to Anger would look great with Annunciation Blue, Little Black Dress, Eggplant, Lilac, and Fandango.
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.
