Note from Sundara...half of you are probably thinking this an odd inspiration photo, and I might agree. I always wonder how the woman who posed for the portrait would feel, knowing she'd become the subject of the most famous painting in the world five hundred years later. I'm sure she never could have imagined. But I was wondering how much the colors have to do with why it's remained so popular.

Because the colors are lovely, aren't they? The blues and greens of the background combined with the browns of her hair and dress? So soothing. I thought I'd deconstruct them a bit and turn it into yarn. And it is indeed lovely. Calm and reminiscent of both the sea and sky. And Mona Lisa doesn't have any edge in her eyes. She's dreamy, although I'm supposed to say the look in her eyes is "enigmatic" according to the historians. But soothing and dreamy seems more fitting, for both her and the yarn.

Just three batches available.
