Galadriel's Gift is heavily speckled and will be an adventure to knit with every stitch different. The colors are sky blue, bright blue, spring green, lavender, a bit of yellow, a bit of chartreuse, and an abundance of magenta and purple speckles.
As for the name, the colors remind me of a stunningly beautiful garden, and that made me think of the box of soil and seeds that Galadriel gave Sam in The Lord of the Rings which he used to replenish the Shire.
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.
Galadriel's Gift on Wonderful Worsted
218 yards / 3.5 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Galadriel's Gift would look fabulous with Call Me Ishmael or Annunciation Blue.
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.
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.
