Have you seen the new Raven Series that was just released by Blue Moon Fiber Arts? The colorways are very unusual. I ordered one skein of Ravenscroft in the Heavyweight to make a couple of hats for holiday gifting. I just can't see using those dark colors to make an intricate sock pattern. Dark yarns give my old eyes fits on a good day. I certainly don't need more yarn, but think the colors are nice for boy hats.
