There's a lovely begonia in bloom on the terrace off my bedroom, and I've been gazing at the sun illuminating the blossoms for weeks, marveling at the pure clarity of Cinderella pink and rose. Not one to wear much myself, tending more towards the coral and salmon hues, nevertheless I suddenly had to dye yarn in those colors. Then, as I was prepping the dyes, visions of flamingos circled my mind, leading to the finding of an exquisite photo with all the hues you see here.

Although the begonias were the first inspiration, the flamingos fanned it into something even more magnificent! It's been a long time since we dyed up this base, which is truly stunning with the high silk content combined with the lustrousness of the alpaca. Only four will be available, as one already slipped into my stash.
