Lucky sock base – Northern Lights Pair


Northern Lights…I once traveled all the way to Alaska to see the northern lights.  I saw the moon, and the stars and a grizzly bear and a moose, but the dreamy mystical lights eluded me.  I remember sitting crosslegged in front of the window staring into the dark hoping to see them, but it was not for me to see.  This colorway is my vision of the Northern Lights.  This is what I’d hope they would look like dancing across a winter sky.  Amidst the deep purple, you will see a bright pop of fuschia; flowing from deep green you will see a pop of chartreuse and amidst red pops pink and plum.  Muted purples and greens, and pinks dance together…they want to be a beautiful shawl or a couple of pairs of amazing socks or even a hat with a luxurious pompom. With all the tonal and color differences, this is the kind of yarn that turns a simple pattern into a spectacular project.  You will love watching the color changes as you work your stitches.  The way they repeat and blend to form new colors is so exciting.
