This yarn started out as half a Travelling Rhino Club batt ("Burst of Sunshine"), a mystery Loop baby-cake batt, a chunk of undyed roving and a chunk of super shiny silver bamboo.

IngredientsCollapse )

My intention was the create a progression yarn based on the end of the Doctor Who episode Gridlock (when the motorway opens and everyone flies off into the dawn). But I don't have that episode on DVD and having checked online (after making the yarn) it appears my brain has combined that scene in Gridlock with the bit in the movie Equilibrium where Preston pulls the coating off the window and watches the sunrise. Hence the title "Gridlock Over New New Libria".

When knitted the yarn will progress from being mostly white with slivers of yellow and orange; down to being mostly yellow and orange with some red and some white; down to being mostly orange and red with some grey; and ending mostly grey and silver with bits of orange.

First off here's my latest yarn, "Demon Barber of Fleet Street" spun from a custom Loop 'spontaneous' batt, full of glitter, tussah silk, sequins and clots of recycled sari silk. Thanks to lunalee for the inspiration!

There's a hole in the world like a big black pit....Collapse )

This is the first of a four part series, "Time Vortex One". There'll be another of this colourway but spun with beads and two yarns, one plain, one beaded in a brighter blue colourway called "Time and Relative Dimensions in Space One/Two". The whole collection is going to be come a lace scarf.

Doo doo doo do-do-doo doodoooooooCollapse )

I still dunno if I actually like this yarn or not.

Heres the roving for reference again.

This is the first of the three batts on the spindle, look at it, its all dark and goth and yum. I was sooo please with it at this point.

The other two batts turned out to have waaay less purple and tons of wierd manky orange. Then I got bored and overspun it. So I had to ply it really cos it was just a squiggly mess without. So I spun it with dustygrey thread, black seed beads, petrol chip beads and clear glass.

The following pictures don't include the insane amount of gold glitter that as usual is hiding from the camera.

Ok so it has no leg yet and one sock isn't very useful but still... yay!

Didn't expect this yarn to come out like it has.

Also I really REALLY hate flicker. I wish Ravelry was set up to work with Photobucket...
