I'm hoping that the rich vibrancy of these reds travel from their place in front of me through all the technology to land thumping in your heart. The shine and luminosity of silk transmits color in visceral ways, and when I started these skeins soaking I already knew they were destined to reflect the hues of our lifeblood, love, survival, and passion.

Then I had to laugh, as one of the images in the True Blood title sequence of a boy eating a strawberry with a messy ruby red mouth popped into my mind. You already know I love that series, particularly enjoying the underlying magic and sexuality of vampirism that the writers and actors brought to life brilliantly.

Ok, back to this rendition of all of that on silk yarn. All four skeins will translate into one utterly stunning top, or singles into show-stopping hats, scarves, or luxurious gloves or mittens. Silk mittens? Why not!
