The Lupine Lady was inspired by the children's book, "Miss Rumphius" written by Barbara Cooney. It's a delightful tale of hardship and beauty.
I dyed this colorway specifically with assigned pooling in mind. There are lots of patterns out there for both knitting and crocheting, but if you are new to the idea, I recommend Dawn Barker's knitting patterns.
I dyed three-quarters of the skein a soft sky blue and the other quarter in purples and blues with a touch of green for the flowers.I dyed it on So Silky Sock, which is made of 50% mulberry silk and 50% superwash merino. It's incredibly soft and so strong I can't break it with my fingers, making it a great choice for weaving as well as knitting and crochet.

The Lupine Lady would look lovely with Phantom of the Opera, Sapphire Dreams, and Pagliacci.
