Sparkle Sock - Lake Minnetonka
Lake Minnetonka is a dark, midnight blue color. It was created as one of the colors when I did a series of yarn inspired by one of my favorite artists, Prince. I named it after the lake in the movie Purple Rain, because I loved that scene when I was in my early teens.

About the Merino Sock base:
Sparkle sock is a lovely, hand dyed sock yarn, with stellina which makes it sparkle. It is lovely, soft and sutable for socks, as well as garments hats and especially shawls. This base is really soft and lovely against your skin, and it shows of lace and structured knitting in a gorgeoud way. Why don't treat yourself to some glittery socks? Or add a little bit of sparkle yarn in a colorwork yoke just to give it a little something extra.
A little note about hand dyed yarn:
Unless the yarn is listed as a "ooak" (one of a kind) the color is repeatable. However, as is always the case with hand dyed yarns, no skeins are exactly like each other and alternating skeins is always recommended.
All yarns are from a smoke-free enviroment with no animals.
