Spinning: Music Inspired Yarn

Over on Facebook, WoolWench and I are having this little thing going on - we let ourselves get inspired by music and make yarn from that inspiration.

This one is inspired by an old Marillion song - Pseudo Silk Kimono. It was released on their "Misplaced Childhood" album, the very same that features the famous Kayleigh.

One of the threads that went into the final yarn - sari silk!
And this is the final yarn:

I had some silk thread over on the bobbin, so I got creative:

Next I dyed some yarn for my shop and City in Dust and Another Brick in the Wall were born:

Another brick in the wall (5) City in Dust (5)

And right now I'm inspired by Mike Oldfield's song The Lake!

It's hand dyed by yours truly with only green and marine, being spun into a single for plying with beads <3

What inspires you?
