Maelstrom

Standard
Maelstrom

Background:

A first experiment in core spinning. I love the swirl of ocean colours in this art yarn.

Story:

Storms approaching

Waves start to swell

Slowly at first

Gentle mist surrounds us.

We are not worried, This is our life, we know the terrain, we understand the fickle personality of nature out at sea.

Clouds darken. Now deep blues and purples, more ominous hues to the seafolk.

Waves start to roil

Rising and crashing

Tossing us about like beads of sweat as the grand ocean flexes her muscles.

We steel ourselves for battle.

Only one of us shall win this day.

Do you remember Fraggle Rock? The vibrant colours in these fibre blends brought me right back to the adventures of these childhood companions!

“Dance your cares away,” they said. “Worry’s for another day.”

I challenge you to feel anything other than happy when looking at these colours.

The oranges of Red’s amazing, expressive hair, the purple of Gobo, the blue of Mokey – truly a noble race! Captured in yarn to surround you with good cheer.

So, let the music play!
