Pride Lace - Luna (HP Yarn Club April 2016)
Luna Lovegood is one of the most overlooked and under-celebrated characters in the Harry Potter world, in my opinion. Her quiet confidence and fearlessness of being different inspires me with every turn of the page or moment of screentime.
If you’ve known me as a dyer for any length of time, you know that (a) I love saturated colors and (b) I could probably mix 1,000 shades of grey and still find more. So far we’ve celebrated lots of intense, complicated colors, so this month I wanted to simplify and tone it down. The shades of pale color in this inspiration photo haunted me for a while as I tried to figure out how to interpret it without over-complicating it. Finally it was just time to put color to yarn, so I let go and started mixing. I couldn’t love the results more and hope you enjoy it!
