Great Pumpkin – September 2018 Tiger Club

ITS THE GREAT PUMPKIN!! #greatpumpkin #charliebrown #peanuts #linus #linusvanpelt #sally #itnevergetsold

As our minds turn from September to October….Halloween looms near. A beloved childhood memory is making sure we watched
“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” when it was broadcast every year. I took inspiration from the pumpkin oranges and greens, and the dark purple of the night sky to create “Great Pumpkin”.

Great Pumpkin - Sept 2018 Tiger Club - Shetland Wool Top

The fiber this month is a wool I often think of as a ‘fall fiber’ (I dunno why, I just do). Shetland is a great all around wool, great for learning to spin; and fabulous for socks, mittens, scarves, cowls, hats. I made a blended gradient of this, with 5 colors to make it a little more smooth. As always, please bend the wool to your will!

Great Pumpkin - Tiger Club Sept 2018 - Tweed Sock Yarn

Our sock yarn adds another dimension to our animated tale…the bits of donegal in Tiger Tweed puts the stars in the sky and lends to the overall fall vibe. I dip dyed these in the round, overlapping the colors. The longer color runs will overlap in the spiral and make some nice pooling and/or mini-stripes.

I do have a few spots open in all clubs, if you’d like to join the fun!
