Ball at Netherfield was inspired by the ball hosted by Mr. Bingham in Pride and Prejudice. The richness of the colors, the warmth of the company (except his sisters), the elegance of the ball together were the inspiration for this colorway.
I dyed it as a variegated yarn using burgundy rose, annunciation blue, renaissance blue, lilac, and eggplant.
I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base this time, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

Ball at Netherfield would go beautifully with Eggplant, Lilac, Mithril, and Burgundy Rose as well as Monet.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Ball at Netherfield on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
