“No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be a heroine.”
Perhaps that is why Catherine is one of Jane Austen's most beloved heroines: because we see ourselves in her complete normalcy. It's easy to love her and identify with her. Catherine is no great beauty, nor particularly witty or clever. She's very average, and being young, not very experienced nor naturally very gifted. She's just a simple girl but the thing that makes her so funny and endearing is her wild imagination and romantic love of adventure, Gothic novels, and mystery! This richly variegated skein captures Catherine's vivid imagination in shades of orchid, magenta, and teal, punctuated with pewter and dashes of black speckles. The colors perfectly complement each other and are pleasing yet never boring, capturing Catherine's youth and idealism mixed with her rather morbid love of mystery and gruesome adventures. This skein makes the perfect meeting of Jane Austen and Gothic novels, and fits into both those collections in my shop.
I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
