Note from Sundara...obviously there is no relation to the color of this yarn and the inspiration photo, the photo is just from the Pride and Prejudice movie, so you'll have to humor me on this one.
A few years ago, I did a Jane Austen inspired yarn for Jimmy Beans Wool in celebration for Jane's birthday month (December). I got stuck with Emma, which no offense to Emma, but it's my least favorite of her novels. (Although I loved the color I came up with) I decided that this was the year to take the opportunity and give you the color I would have dyed from Pride and Prejudice, had I been given the chance.
The two colors mentioned in that book are blushing, as ladies are wont to do, and Lizzie's fine brown eyes. I wanted to meld those colors together and knit myself a sweater and this was the color I had in mind. So finally, at long last, is my Miss Elizabeth color. Hopefully, like me and Mr. Darcy, a few of you will be entranced with brown eyed ladies who blush.
"Miss Elizabeth" is available to order until 10am, pacific, Thursday, December 6. Yarn will ship very late next week.
