Purple Rain

Hey, all of you Prince fans!  Check out our latest colorway — “Purple Rain.”  It’s a gradient self-striping yarn dyed on our Big Sky Base, and the colors gradually shift from a gray-blue, to blue, to violet, to purple, and back again.Purple Rain Poster  There are four knitted rows (depending on gauge) of Prince, 2 rows of The Revolution, 2 rows of Computer Blue, 2 rows of Let’s Go Crazy, 2 rows of When Doves Cry, 2 rows of Jungle Love, 4 rows of Purple Motorcycle, 2 rows of Jungle Love, 2 rows of When Doves Cry, 2 rows of Let’s Go Crazy, 2 rows of Computer Blue, and 2 rows of The Revolution.  This yarn is very addictive to knit with such sudden color changes.  Because this one was so much fun to dye, I am sure we will be experimenting more with gradient self-striping yarn.
