Waterhouse Colorways

This week, the SockPixie colorways were inspired by the works of John William Waterhouse.
Often associated with the Pre-Raphaelites he painted the femme fatale of legends, and poetry.

Here is the Danaides Colorway with its inspiration painting.




Here is the colorway shown in Alpaca.




And here as a Finn Roving.



Enjoy!
