Rivendell was inspired by that beautiful peaceful respite from The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien said it was the perfect place whether you preferred reading or conversation or doing nothing at all. Doesn't that sound heavenly? Can we bring our knitting needles? :-)
The colors include forest green, chocolate brown, gold, silver, white, and royal purple.
I dyed it on Super Sport, which is a wonderfully squishy 80/20 superwash merino/nylon yarn perfect for hats, shawls, sweaters, and heavier weight socks for winter. It is a nice round 3-ply with great stitch definition.
Rivendell on Super Sport
328 yards / 3.5 oz / 3 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
Rivendell would look great with Eggplant, Evergreen, Chocolate, and Lothlorien.
I included a photo of a hat I knit to give you an idea of how Beowulf can work up.
