These were an experiment… after a sleepless night. I could probably make something similar again, but these are one of a kind.
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!
