Recently I finished listening to The English Patient being read aloud, and all the magic of that beautiful story is still being filtered through my days. There were quite a few memorable phrases that caught my attention, and one of them has been used as the name for these skeins. As you know, the last batch of violetti blu yarn sold out even before I was able to let anyone know about it. Except for the folks on Instagram, of course, who usually see the yarn photos first.

Anyway, I decided to dye up another batch, but was inspired to weave in some teal with the cyan and violet, echoing the imagined nighttime scenes in the book, and once again I'm completely chuffed with the result! I hope you are too.
