"Call me Ishmael. Some years ago--never mind how long precisely--having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world."
--Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
So begins what may well be the greatest American novel.
Call Me Ishmael is a somewhat more cheerful take on the narrator of Moby-Dick compared with November in My Soul. It is his call to the ocean and contains white, several shades of blue, teal, and bronze. I included some color from each of the other characters as Ishmael describes them from his own experience.
I dyed this on my Sock Perfection yarn base, which is a great 80/20, perfect for socks and anything else you want to make.

The last photo shows Call Me Ishmael with Copper Roof and Copper.
I have included 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.
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
