March Clubs - Holi Hai!

A belated series of posts catching up with sock and fibre clubs! Beginning with March....

March is the Hindu festival of colour, Holi, celebrated at the end of winter on the last full moon of the lunar month of Phalguna. It has many mythical associations and heralds the arrival of Spring, bringing hope of fertility and a good year to come. 

Participants  throw coloured, scented powders at each other and social strictures are cast aside in an abundant, joyful celebration. I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you to find out that I think this is the most awesome festival tradition and I loved creating a colourway to reflect such colourful exuberance. Holi Hai!

For a taste of the sheer joy of Holi see it beautifully captured by photojournalist Poras Chaudary
