I dyed Purple Prism using the same technique as A Light in Dark Places, but this time the background colorway is Eggplant instead of black.
I dyed Eggplant everywhere except the middle section both sides, and I dyed that middle section with fuchsia, orange, yellow, chartreuse, Renaissance Blue, and Lilac.
One of the really cool things that happens with this colorway is that one section of the colors goes ROYGBIV while the next one goes VIBGYOR. I've included a couple photos of a hat I knit so you can see what I mean.
It also works great for both planned pooling and assigned pooling projects.
I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

409 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies
92% superwash merino / 8% lurex
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Purple Prism would look great with Renaissance Blue and Lilac.
I included two photos of a hat I knit using this colorway on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up.
