April Tiger Club Reveal

It’s reveal day!  As many of you know, I’m a former science teacher, with a degree in Biology.  Since I can remember I’ve been interested in insects.  One that I find especially captivating is the dragonfly.  These are true fierce beauties.  This fellow is the Common Green Darner Dragonfly (Anax junius).  Dunno about you, but I don’t see much common about this creature at all.

Colors like this need some striping, so for our sock yarn, I knit up a bundle of Fillet of Soles (double stranded sock blanks).  This will make skinny 2 row stripes alternating between the colors on each side.

The fiber club brings back a favorite…Polwarth.  If you remember the last time I did Polwarth for Tiger Club, it was in flaming colors of red orange and gold.  So fitting to do the cool part of the rainbow.

As always, thank you for being a part of Tiger Club.  If you aren’t ‘in’, I’d like to invite you to join us.  May Club is open until the 15th.  No big commitment, you can even just try one month.
