The pattern is Cookie A's Pomotomus and the yarn was hand dyed by me. It wasn't a technical dying job, Jen had a dye day and at the end of it I painted on the left over colours on some yarn Workshop sock yarn, and got this. I love it, it is super bright but not neon, but it was a little hard to find a pattern that wasn't overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the yarn. I think this works, and if this doesn’t brighten my mood right up, nothing will.
For some reason the Kasey Chamber's song Colours of a Carnival keep going around my head and I thought it was a good name for these socks. Then I looked up the lyrics and realised that it's actually quite a sad song. Here's the chorus:
It coulda been the colour of a carnival
It coulda been the light in the dark
It coulda been the blaze of glory
That keeps us all from falling apart It coulda been better
It coulda been bigger
Everything that I need
These socks are definitely the light in the dark!
