In the 1999 cult movie classic Office Space, boss Bill Lumbergh is always trying to keep up with the trend of 'wear jeans on Friday'.  He ratchets Casual Friday up a notch by making next Friday "Hawaiian Shirt Day". 

Modeled after one of my husband's many Hawaiian shirts he wore in high school, the colorful HAWAIIAN SHIRT DAY emphasizes bright orange and yellow hibiscus' on a purple background with hints of dark leaves peeking out.  Perhaps you can knit a Hawaiian shirt with this colorway?  Now matter what you create, it will be colorful!

Hand-dyed on my Retired RHODE ISLAND RED base which will show clear definition of stitches when knit or crocheted These skeins are a bit larger - boasting at least 230 yards.

 

Handdyed in Western Colorado, USA

The yarn is very soft and squishy and doesn't split. It is dreamy to work with and will soon become one of your favorite yarns!


YARN BASE INFORMATION:


RHODE ISLAND RED (Worsted) 4-ply: 
~~ 100% Superwash Merino
100g(4 oz) and 200yd. Gauge is 5-6 st/in

Washing instructions:
For best results, handknit items should be handwashed in tepid water and laid flat to dry. Superwash yarn CAN be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle (but not advised), then laid flat to dry.

Yarn dyeing is done at home in my back room and air-dried by God. We are a non-smoking home with a cat that roams around our back room and yard. He is afraid of the dyeing equipment and special care is taken so that he does not get onto the yarn - he's too old and arthritic to jump up on the table anyway.

Due to the nature of hand-dyed yarns being unique, the skein you receive may vary slightly from the photo shown. If you have questions about the skein, please contact me and I will answer any questions you may have
