"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 it on Wonderful Worsted, which is a squishy and round 4-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more.
Call Me Ishmael on Wonderful Worsted
218 yards / 3.5 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Call Me Ishmael would look great with Annunciation Blue, Turquoise, or Galadriel's Gift.
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.
