This colorway was inspired by one of my favorite paintings by Monet: "The Portal of Rouen Cathedral in Morning Light." Here's a link to the painting. He spent 2 years painting the same cathedral at different times of day, and some have called it the ultimate series in impressionism.
The colors include dark blue, medium blue, soft lilac, eggplant, and a bit of chartreuse with a generous amount of speckles.
The last two photos show a hat I knit using Monet's Cathedral on Quick and Cozy Bulky.
Monet's Cathedral on So Silky Sock
437 Yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
50% superwash merino wool, 50% silk
Care: Hand wash cold and air dry
Monet's Cathedral goes beautifully with La Bohème, Lilac, and Annunciation Blue.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit up in this colorway using Quick and Cozy Bulky. 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.
