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.

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.

I spun this last friday but forgot to post it. This is my April Spontaneous Batt from Loop-

"Passiflora Caerulea" 120yards of merino, bamboo, alpaca, silk noil, cotswold locks and lots of angelina.

Jadzy - I chose summer for the May batt too!

Rose At Dusk, super sparkly random mini batts spun with thread and coils-

Drama Queen, extreme sparkle (about 70% glitter)-

Jazzturtle- Those yarns spun from the Loop spontaneous batts are just glorious! I love the one with the money especially.

Artsygirl- the yarn you spun up from the Chocolate Liquor batt is amazing! I doubt I could ever spin that fine!

I only have the one this week, this is 'Time Vortex One' spun from Loop's Indigo Inspiration batt.

117yards of fingering weight (both a yardage and wieght record for me) that took weeks to spin on my drop spindle. And thats only from 1.5ounces! I have half the batt yet to spin.

But I don't want to spin any more of that since I have this beautiful spontaneous batt staring at me, waiting to be spun. Its Sweeney Todd in batt form!

I think I've spent too long on Ravelry, it almost didn't occur to me to post this here.

This is my version of Snuffykin's awesome Tenth Doctor Who Pattern. He has no mouth yet cos I'm out of pale pink but otherwise he's done. Can't wait to start on the other characters.

Oh wow! So many fabulous yarns!! I love Amazon, Lily Butterfly, Chocolate Disco and Chasing Comets especially Smiley

Jazzturtle- VEGAS Baby is utterly stunning and I love what you did with Midnight Magic, I just got some of those batts in the mail Cheesy

i actually have something this week but the story behind it is longer than the yarn itself. My first two ply yarn (thanks Nicolassa for explaining the method!) made from half of January's Traveling Rhinos Fiber club. Its called "Gunther Hates Lemon-Lime" after the character from Deus Ex and the fact that I have a deep loathing of yellow and green together. I've been spinning for a while now but never dared to attempt plying a yarn with itself til now. Its only 27yards.

This is my only yarn this week, 'Felicia Jollygoodfellow', the fiber was from [email protected] but I've can't find it on her listings anywhere so I've no idea whats in it.

I finally managed to get a decent photo of the glitter content too.

oh great start to the new year everyone! I love Mermaid Dreads and Big Pink especially Smiley

This is my only offering this week and my first vaguely successful attempt at plying a yarn with anything.

"Vintage Post-Apocalypse" spun from Earth Goddess by [email protected] then plyed with dustygrey thread and various beads. Theres a LOT more sparkle in there than the photos show.
