Isolde in Calogrenant's Misadventure
About the Yarn Base (Isolde)
This fine, smooth, softer-than-soft yarn is like the hair of the fairest maiden or the silk from a magical spider. It manages to be both delicate and strong at the same time, thanks to its lace weight and fiber combination of Bluefaced Leicester and silk. It shines with true beauty and has a bit of a halo—beware, you may fall so in love with this base that you’re willing to battle a dragon just for the chance to knit with it.
55% Bluefaced Leicester, 45% Silk
875 yds / 800 m
About the Color (Calogrenant's Misadventure)

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Sir Calogrenant is riding along, looking for adventure, and finds a field with a herd of bulls being tended by a massive hairy man holding a club. The man tells the knight about a nearby fountain which boils, even though it feels cold to the touch. Beside the fountain is a tree and beside the tree a stone with a basin attached to it. The man tells Calogrenant to use the basin to pour water over the stone and wait to see what happens. Calogrenant wastes no time in locating the fountain. The basin is made of the finest gold, and the stone is an emerald adorned with four rubies.
In his eagerness, he pours an entire basin of water on the stone. Immediately, the skies darken and pummel the area with snow, rain, and hail. Lightning flashes. Calogrenant fears for his life as trees crash down around him. After the tempest, he hears the sound of another knight approaching in haste and anger. The knight chastises Calogrenant for causing the storm that brought about such destruction. They immediately join together in combat, but it does not last long as Calogrenant is quickly knocked from his saddle. Lying on his back on the ground, he watches the other knight depart, leading Calogrenant’s horse away.
