Cute But Fake Unicorn: I'm An "Ally"
Fingering 2 ply
100g 400 yards
80% Superwash Merino 20% Silk
Whenever someone declares they are an ally, it raises suspicion to me (some are honest and true) but deciding to label yourself as an "ally" when you've done nothing to educate yourself, empower and elevate a marginalized community, you're not an ally! You're just someone close to that community enough to profit off of them!
So I went with light pastels to represent the pink washing and watered down statement, it looks pretty and solid on paper but still weak, hints of gold that represent your self proclaimed holiness, and bright strong speckles (pink, Dark navy and purple) to represent the harm that actually being done by being a just bystander!
This colorway is a reminder, to stop and think instead of applauding people for the minimum effort
I know that's not how violets rot but in my head they turn into that color
