Blue Brick Wall

I was surprised when I opened my package and saw this yarn. It's quite a bit different than the photo on the site, what with the purple and brown tones. I even considered returning the yarn but Tina at BMFA talked me out of it when she told me the inspiration behind Blue Brick Wall.

Apparently she used to travel to India a lot where she saw a magnificent blue brick wall in Madras. That wall became the inspiration behind this colorway. Once it had a story, I had to keep it. And so far I'm not disappointed as to how it looks with this linen stitch. I think BMFA would sell more yarn if they told their inspiration behind the different colors. I'm a sucker for marketing and I'm pretty sure others are too.
