Berlin - Yowza - BabetteIn Stock:
I absolutely loved dyeing this yarn! My inspiration photo for this was a set of night pictures of Berlin with all the bright lights of cars, neon, buildings, and all sorts of signs. The colors are sometimes garish and bright, but at the same time magical! As I painted each set of yarns…and each skein will be different from every other…I was imagining city night lights. I was also hearing the cacophony of horns and cars and street noise, and the smells of walking past different stores and restaurants and street corners. The beauty of the black base underlying the other colors is that it will mute and soften the brightness so that they play nice in the knitting.
Each skein is unique, just as each person's experience of the same city is unique.
