Havelock Vetinari

Vetinari was one of the more difficult colours to come up with (although the one coming up has been by far the most vexing). How can you define the man with anything other than black, deep, impenetrable black? Well, if you remember reading “Night Watch”, he was the only assassin in the Guild who wore anything besides black. Green was his preferred colour for camouflage. But is he truly a “green” character? Nah. So I had to collide his past with his present in order to represent the full Havelock.



The double meanings of his common methods of speech are also represented by this skein, as you’re not entirely sure if that’s black, or dark green, or sortablack. How are you supposed to take this one? Best to just sit quietly and give monosyllabic answers if necessary. About the only person to have gotten away with trying to play his own game back to him was Sam Vimes. I’m not even going to try putting a colour to him.


Don’t let me detain you. I’m sure you have knitting to do.
