Christmas Candy was inspired by those lovely candy canes with the red and green stripes. I added red speckles as well, because why not?
There's also lovely sparkles from the Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

409 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies
92% superwash merino / 8% lurex

Christmas Candy would go well with Forest Green or Cherries Jubilee.
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.
