New York's Fairytale or Fairytale of New York!

This is on my Luxus Base SW merino/nylon 89/11 100g fingering weight/ 4 ply skein This is a beautiful yarn.

Welcome to BumpyCrafts, BumpyYarn by Antonia Stonell, created in Worthing, UK.

One of my most favourite Christmas songs is Fairytale of New York. I loved Kirsty MacColl who accompanied the Pogues in this song. It tells a story of an Irish immigrant's Christmas Eve reverie in a New York police cell sleeping off a hangover, where he hears an old man also in a cell, singing an Irish ballad called "The Rare Old Mountain Dew". The Irish man starts dreaming about himself and the female character from this song. The remainder of the song then takes the form of a call and response between the couple, their youthful hopes crushed by alcoholism and drug addiction, as they reminisce and bicker on Christmas Eve.

It's a difficult colour to dye for Christmas, but I went with the flow of the song and created it iconically to Manhattan, the place the prison cell was in New York and how it would look through my eyes, with all the taxi lights streaming through as the sun is starting to set. The less romanticised view, but more realistic of the hussle and bustle of the last evening before Christmas, when everyone is rushing and life is hectic!

PLEASE NOTE- Every colour way is made with up to 4 skeins and slight colour variations can and do occur! That is the nature of a handdyed yarn- it is art, not a factory item mass produced. I have tried my best to show the full colour of this yarn in natural daylight, however, computer monitors and mobile devices may show the colour slightly differently than my picture.

This yarn is recommended as machine washable, but for best results, we recommend hand washing and drying flat. We try to produce a yarn with colourfastness, but some bleeding might occur with the first wash. Grab yourself or someone you love a wonderful gift.
