I found an etsy shop that I really like! It's Faery Fiber. I have no idea where I heard of them, probably from Ravelry but I'm not sure. Anyway I was looking at her sock yarn and I found one called "Mad Eye." It's her line based on the Harry Potter books. (I admit I'm a sucker for yarn named after anyone in a book I like) I don't remember what she said about Mad Eye exactly that caught my eye, but I know the brilliant blue was for his eyes, the brown is the colors that he normally wears, and there's a hint of pink to match his cheeks. Anyway, the colorway is beautiful. It's 475 yds, so there is definitely enough to do whatever I want with this. I was also tempted by her Cafe Mocha colorway, but decided that one skein was enough to try out.
As a bonus for buying from her, Faery Fiber sends along special stitch markers for free. These beauties look great with the yarn. And they look pretty cool in the snow too!
