Cosette was inspired by one of my favorite novels and musicals too--Les Miserables.
After the death of her mother, Jean Valjean finds and adopts Cosette, and the two of them make life not only bearable but joyful for one another. Cosette is pure goodness and sweetness.
I dyed her colorway with purple for self-sacrificing love, pink for gentleness, blue for loyalty to both Jean Valjean and later her betrothed, and white for purity.
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 437 yards.
Cosette on Stained Glass Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies

Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Cosette would go beautifully with Jean Valjean and Javert. It would also look lovely with Rosy-Fingered Dawn, Renaissance Blue, or Lilac.
