Nearly caught up - November clubs..

Almost there with the club catch-up pics!

November was inspired by fireworks but not, as you might think, the pop/bang/exploding kind. In a fantastic book at my in-laws I found pictures of the Fireworks Galaxy and it was so beautiful I thought it would make a terrific colourway.

This is the fireworks galaxy...

And this is the colourway it inspired...

Sparkly merino/nylon yarn with star-bright silvery stellina...

Softest grey Merino roving...

Silk noil, Suri alpaca fleece, black Shetland and a little swirl of sparkly trilobal nylon...
I have to say that for a bit of extra glitz I was very impressed with the dye take-up on the trilobal nylon using my procion dyes (acid dye method). I've only just started stocking this undyed and the colours were so rich and intense - yummy!
