The Odyssey Trail : Books Five and Six : YARN

by Countess Ablaze March 25, 2015

Each month I shall be dyeing 12 colourways on both yarn and spinning fibre inspired by the story of Odysseus' journey. Colourways are exclusive to The Odyssey Trail and will not be repeated. Colourways will be associated with characters, events and quotes from each book.

If you would like to read along, the version that I will be using is a translation by Richmond Lattimore and is available in paperback and Kindle version. (This links to Amazon UK). ISBN: 0060931957.

There is an open thread in the Countess Ablaze Ravelry group where we shall indulge in some ancient inspiration for a KAL beginning on 1st April with prizes to be won!

As The Odyssey is split into twenty four books, we'll be reading two books per month and the colourways will be released on the last Friday of the month. Books Five and Six will go live on Friday 27th March at 7pm GMT. Below you'll find the yarn preview of which there'll be between 10 and 20 skeins available per colourway.
