January 2015 Yarn Club: The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors

I have to start this by saying that this yarn is really hard to photograph -- it's almost as if it's too rich for my camera! I now have dozens of photos of this yarn in different places in and outside of my house, searching for that one particular light that won't make it too flat, or too much the wrong shade, or so bright that my camera won't even focus on it.

Having said that, it may be my favorite from the set, and I (koff, koff) might need a sweater quantity in a sport weight, for a sweater. Ahem.

And now....

January's colorway was The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors.

"Look to your sins Lord Renly, the night is dark and full of terrors." - Melisandre to Renly Baratheon

Melisandre is a mysterious priestess who was sold into service at the Red Temple when young. She grew to practice the R'hllor – Lord of Light - faith and is a powerful magician and Red Priestess. She has utter faith in her visions, seen in flames, and believes that Stannis Baratheon is Azor Ahai (a great hero) reborn.

If you opted for Worsted, the yarn was Tepper, a 100% Superwash Merino that gets 4.5-5 stitches to the inch on a US 7-9.

Sad that you missed out? The next round of club is open!
