KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER on Squoosh DK

Regular price $28.00

This yarn was inspired by the main character in Sigrid Undset's wonderful trilogy. The novels are set in late medieval Norway. The main character, Kristin, makes a terrible mistake but goes on to do much good in spite of it.

Like the character of Kristin, the yarn has a pleasing complexity to it. I dyed it using rose, peach, and lilac on a background of gray. I used my Splashed and Speckled method to dye these. That means each skein has the same colors in approximately the same proportion, but the placement of each color will be a little different on each one. The great thing about that is it means the chances of the yarn pooling are pretty minimal. I do recommend switching skeins every few rows if you prefer a more homogeneous look.

I dyed it on my Squoosh DK yarn base, which is a super soft and squishy yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It comes in big 4 ounce skeins.
