Now taking orders for January's colorway, Pretty Rickey! Or sign up for two months of yarn!

Kir de Reddit preview!

This yarn came out AWESOME!   The finished cocktail (which is delicious, by the way) is this lovely plum color that became the center of this colorway.  Deep bluish purples represent the black currant of the creme de cassis liquer, with rich tones of raspberry for the raspberry liqueur.  Rosé wines come in a variety of shades, from deep reds to warm blush to bright cantaloupe, so I chose a middling blush and an orange/peach to bring in the champagne element and to add pops of brighter color to the finished yarn. The orange/peachy color came out a little bit more on the orange side than I had anticipated, but the color creates a very interesting contrast to the pinks, plums, and purples present in the rest of the yarn so...

And now some pictures, for those of you who want to know what's coming.

Here's a close-up of the twisted hank:
