In light of that, I decided to incorporate a song from one of my favorite musicals--Fiddler on the Roof--and name it after that. Introducing Sunrise, Sunset. Many thanks to Rachel who suggested the idea.
The song is sung by the parents at the wedding of their eldest daughter. They are wondering how the years have passed so quickly, and I know that is a sentiment that many of us have felt.
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a smooth, soft 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.
Sunrise, Sunset on Stained Glass Sock
Splashed & Speckled Colorway
400 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Sunrise, Sunset would look great with Sunflower and Burgundy Rose as well as Indian Jezebel Butterfly.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Sunrise, Sunset on Buttery Soft DK to give you an idea of how it can work up.
