I named this colorway Smitten because that was my own reaction to the colorway when I saw it. I hope you feel the same way! The colors include purple, burgundy, several shades of green, gold, copper, and silver.
I dyed it on my Sparkly Merino Sock yarn base, which shows the colors beautifully. I used my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique.
Sparkly Merino Sock is a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.
Smitten on Sparkly Merino Sock
Splashed & Speckled Colorway
409 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies
92% superwash merino / 8% lurex
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Smitten would go beautifully with Forest Green, Eggplant, Burgundy Rose, Lilac, and Sage.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit up to give you an idea of how the colorway can work up. I used Squoosh DK to make it.
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
