Dusk ‘n’ Roses

Somehow, this yarn always reminds me of the Doctor’s first companion in the new TV show of Doctor Who. She wears these dusky-pink mittens in one scene, her name is Rose, and as the story progresses, her character develops more depth, and there’s also a kind of darker side to her. If you know the series, just think about her looking into the heart of the Tardis! If you haven’t seen any of the new Doctor Who yet, you should consider it ;-)

I spun this beauty from my own hand carded fibre blend, containing softest merino wool of a dusky grey/anthracite, shiny black mulberry silk, and fine merino wool of cardinal red, rosewood (some kind of dusky pinkish red), and dark tealish green. I spun in purple satin roses and organza ribbons, and slightly glittery black thread carrying facetted black glass beads.

160 m (175 yards)
79 g (2,79 oz)
about 10-16 wpi

Like all our yarns, this one has been spun in a smoke free home.
