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 Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.

Rivendell would go beautifully with Chocolate, Evergreen, and Eggplant.
I knit a hat using this colorway so you can get an idea of how it can work up.
