Here are some photos of the sparkles - or at least attempts at photographing sparkles - it's actually quite hard to get the sparkles showing.

This is the wool - first the green that is still to be knitted, with a close up that hopefully shows how the metallic is woven in, and then the fringe of the autumn scarf to show off the colours better.

And just because I was already taking photos of sparkles - here is my latest haul from Sparklies. First a Solitaire (opal) on linen, then Moonlighting (silver metallic), Midnight (silver metallic) and Ink (silver metallic).

The colour of the Moonlighting isn't as bright as the photos show, it's really a bit darker.

The Midnight is a bit darker than this too.

And the same for the ink - the second photo is closer to the right colour.

I would have taken photos of some of my other sparklies fabrics too, but that involved too much effort so I didn't. I think my favourite is the Purple Dalmation Solitaire (can't remember whether it's an opal or not) which I have found a scan of on my computer, so here it is:

I have no idea what I'm going to use if for though. Those whitish spots on the upper left corner aren't as visible when just looking at the fabric - I hadn't even noticed them until I did the scan.
