Notre-Dame de Paris was inspired by Maximilien Luce's painting by the same name.
This was originally my club colorway for March 2019, and I chose it upon hearing the news of the fire in Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.
The predominant color is lilac, but the yarn also has sea-foam green, blue, and peach as well as a few other colors.
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 used my Sparkly Merino Sock base this time, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.
The last photo shows a sample I knit up using this colorway.
