After Sundown: A tropical sunset on yarn

Available now on Blue Moon!

For a few moments, every evening in Hawai’i, everything stops. Eyes turn toward the ocean, you can almost hear a collective sigh as the sun goes down. Often people will linger until the last bit of orange and pink has faded from the sky. Sunset here is magical, there’s absolutely no doubt about it. What most people miss though, is how absolutely spectacular the sky becomes after the brilliance of sunset has subsided.

When you look directly overhead the sky has become such a deep rich shade of blue, it’s almost indescribable. It’s like velvet. As your eyes follow the gradient down toward the horizon the changes are subtle, but absolutely astonishing. Deep velvety blue with the slightest hints of purple, changes into a rich royal blue, which fades quickly into the sweetest turquoise you’ve ever seen. Dots of warm oranges and golds start to appear in the blackened buildings, as lights come on for the evening. Like twinkling stars, for those of us who are earthbound.

If I were a hue, I would, without question or hesitation, be the evening sky in Hawai’i, just after sunset. :)

Nā poʻe o ka pō

People of the night.

This colorway description is from Contessa who was one of our three what hue are you colorway contest on the Rockin’ Sock Cub blog. It was great and challenging fun to create personally specific hues. This was the most challenging one for me.

Thank you Contessa! This colorway will be available for purchase soon on the Blue Moon site!
