Javert is one of the colorways I created using Les Misérables as my inspiration. Javert was the detective who spent the entire novel (and musical) seeking Jean Valjean. Unfortunately, his sense of justice could not bend at all in the direction of mercy, so even when he knew that Jean Valjean lived a life doing good for everyone around him, Javert still made his one and only goal recapturing Jean Valjean.
Because of his absolutely black and white view of the world, I made his colorway just that--black and white.
I dyed Javert on Sock Perfection, which is made of extra-soft superwash merino as well as nylon.
The last photo shows a little swatch I knit to give you an idea of how it will work up.
Javert on Sock Perfection
450 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Javert would look great with Jean Valjean and Cosette. It would also go beautifully with It's Complicated or Murder Mystery.
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.
