Treasures of North Africa

This week has been a soul searching week for some of the SockPixie family, and a time to reflect on, and reconnect with our origins. These moments of reflection, led me to think about my North African origins. My family, being Jewish, left Spain at the time of the Inquisition and settled in North Africa, and after living there of quite a few generations moved to Paris. My parents took me to visit Tunis, and Marrakesh. I decided to revisit these places in colors.

I hope you will enjoy the Treasures of North Africa Collection. The colorway at the center is called Feuille de Menthe after the famous Mint Tea served evrywhere in the region.

Very nice colors! My younger daughter has been traveling to Africa with her work since last November. Your colors match the colors worn by the women in her photos.

I'm so happy that I was able to get all these colors! Each one is as beautiful as the one before it and I'll hardly know where to start knitting when the yarns arrive. :)
