Thank you very much for your kind comments on my last post.
Do any of you remember playing Trivial Pursuit? My friends and I used to play quite a lot of it in the mid-80's when it had just come out and was so popular. I can be a bit of a dolt, and one time playing the game, I got the question:
What does a Peacock mate with?
I don't know. I was a bit stunned at the question. "You mean...what parts??" I asked. My friends have NEVER let me forget it. I'm pretty sure it came up at my wedding too.
A potential Etsy client emailed me a beautiful photograph of a close-up shot of a peacock's tail feather. She asked if I could do something with the teals, greens, blues and super deep blue-purple colour of that dark circle in the feather. I think I've come pretty close here.
The yarn is still damp in these photos, and it hasn't been re-skeined yet. The yarn is my fab Trekking sock yarn from the UK. Very nice to dye and to work with. I can already understand why that yarn is so popular.
I've also done up some skeins in this colorway in the luxury merino/alpaca/silk DK. They are rinsing now, and look great.
I need some name suggestions. I've been enjoying unusual, funky or tongue-in-cheek yarn names. I could call it:
Strut Your Stuff
or....??? Suggestions are always welcome.
