“…the Lake of Shining Waters was blue — blue — blue; not the changeful blue of spring, nor the pale azure of summer, but a clear, steadfast, serene blue, as if the water were past all modes and tenses of emotion and had settled down to a tranquillity unbroken by fickle dreams.”

--L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island

The Lake of Shining Waters is one of those colorways where I dyed the yarn first and then went in search of a name for it. My daughter Mary came up with the idea of naming it after one of our favorite series of books--Anne of Green Gables.

In the first book, when Matthew was bringing her to Green Gables, they passed a lovely pond, and Anne ecstatically asked what it was called. When Matthew told her its practical name, Barry's Pond, she said it didn't fit at all and renamed it The Lake of Shining Waters.

The colorway has multiple shades of deep blues and purples as well as a bit of green. 

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.
