Think of a starry night filled with deep joy. That's what I had in mind when I created the colorway as well as James Joyce's novel, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man where the idea of an artistic epiphany is central to the novel. I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique.
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.
Epiphany on Stained Glass Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
100% superwash merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Epiphany would look lovely with Purple Delight or North Wind.
The last photo shows a swatch I knit up in this colorway using Sparkly Merino Sock. 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, the yarn base, and even the individual skein.
