Imagine the sun coming out right after a big rain storm. The gray sky is still off in the distance, but the sunshine is making everything sparkle with fresh color. That was my inspiration for After the Rain. The colors include several shades of blue, lilac, burgundy rose, fuchsia, sea-foam green, and chartreuse.
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.

I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit in this colorway. 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 you use and the yarn base as well.
