These were an experiment… after a sleepless night. I could probably make something similar again, but these are one of a kind.
There are two in each colour – what you see on the left is the re-skeined version of what you see on the right. This is to give you a better idea of what their overall tone is.
They are on Wishbone Solo, which is a soft fingering weight, single ply 100% Merino yarn. It’s perfect for shawls and garments.

Where has this yarn been my whole life? I had to cast on something new immediately once it had dried… I love this base so much – it’s a slinky blend of Merino Wool, Kid Mohair and Mulberry Silk.
I think I might need a cabled jacket in this…
While packing my bags to go away tomorrow, I was also finishing off some things in my to-do pile – one of them was to add more tassels to my shawl. I posted a quick pic on instagram and for a second it flashed beneath a photograph by my dear friend Gaby.
The things that dreams are made of…
I dyed up two skeins – one a lot less intense than the other, but a tonal match.
The colours on glistening Wishbone Sock (100% twisted Merino) reminded me of sunlight on bluebottles. I was petrified of them when I was small because I once emerged from the sea with a string of them around my tummy – ouch! But I was drawn to their beauty nonetheless.
I melded the colours in the by alternating them every second row for eight rows. The pattern is by one of my favourite designers – Simone Eich.
Simone is a synaesthete – she sees numbers and words in colour!
