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, lilac, eggplant, and a bit of chartreuse with a generous amount of speckles.
I dyed it on Splendid Sock, which is fantastic for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon.
Monet's Cathedral on Splendid Sock
463 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
75% superwash merino / 25% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Monet's Cathedral would look wonderful with Eggplant 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.
