“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off--then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”
--Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
November in My Soul was inspired by that greatest of American novels, Moby-Dick. The colors include green, gray-green, deep blue, berry, and purple. I dyed it using my Splashed & Speckled method, so it isn't likely to pool.
I dyed these on my Sparkly Merino Fingering-Weight yarn base, which is made of 92% merino wool and 8% sparkly lurex.
