I named this colorway Party Like It's 2021 in the middle of 2020, assuming the pandemic would be long over by 2021. Now that time has passed, I decided to keep the theme but keep moving forward.
This is the speckliest yarn I've ever made. I used magenta, orange, yellow, chartreuse, blue, berry, and purple speckles. Did I miss anything? ;-)
I used Feather Sock as the yarn base. Feather Sock is made of 85% extra-fine non-superwash merino wool and 15% silk. It's a 2-ply yarn with a lot of yardage. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more. Just be aware that it should be hand-washed in cold water so it doesn't felt. On the other hand, it's great for weavers and others who want to full their cloth.
The colors meld a little more on Feather Sock, giving Party Like It's 2023 a bit of an Impressionist look.

Splashed & Speckled Colorway
490 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies

Party Like It's 2024 would go beautifully with It's Complicated and Complications as a fabulous fade shawl or top. It would also look great with Burgundy Rose, Sunset Orange, Sunflower, Freedom Blue, Margarita, Lilac, Eggplant, and Little Black Dress.
