Blue Eared Starling - Fibonacci gradient - 130g



I was sent a stunning image of a Blue eared glossy starling, and I was blown away with the colours and shimmer on these birds.

I put together this blend of soft merino and shiny tussah silk to try to do the birds plumage justice.

The colours of the blend match the colours of the birds closely on my screen, but my camera REALLY does not want to capture the colour of the final /largest batt. which is why I have taken some photographs of the batts on a white background, to get the best match (on my monitor). The final batt is a greeny turquoise/light jade colour.

The batt sizes are : 8g : 13g : 21g : 34g : 55g

I started creating fibonacci gradient as I love knitting crescent shaped shawls. The only problem being is the first colour in the gradient is a large area in the shawl, and the final colour may be only 5 rows - for the same amount of yarn. Therefore using the fibonacci numbers all of the colours in the gradient will take up about the same amount of area on the shawl.

This blend will spin up into a saft, shimmering yarn with good drape.
