Every now and then I do a tiny run of a certain powerful, good wish. This is Wish #3, it’s power and goodness concentrated in two skeins only. Never to be repeated.
Wishbone Sock is a soft fingering weight, double ply 100% Merino yarn. It’s perfect for shawls and garments.
This week has been all about green for me. My first try at sage green left me with a very nice shade of grey… I gave it a rest and the next day everything became clear. I love sage green so much that ALL the woodwork in my loft is painted in two shades of it.
Which brings me to Wish #2:
Wish #2, just like Wish #1, contains a very powerful and good wish. There are only four skeins, and this colour way will not be repeated.
Did I mention that I love grey green?
Mixed with rust…
And that brings me to Wish #3. It contains a wish so powerful that it could only be made once. 100 grams of powerful good green wish.
Mme Wishbone is taking a two week break to go to the mountains and the sea, in search of more green inspiration.
See you soon!
Wish #1 contains a powerful, good wish.
There are only four skeins and it will never be repeated.
I can imagine it becoming an Open Waters Shawl or Cowl.
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!
