This is your chance to get the first four colors of the Space Exploration Series. I see the space exploration is an avenue to create unity amongst so much turmoiled division. Not for the issues or events to be ignored, but something that we can all come together and be happy and excited about. That is also why I chose to donate part of the proceeds of these colors to U.S. Space & Rocket Center -Education Foundation. CLICK HERE to learn more. I’d love to be able to donate enough to cover a scholarship to space camp for a child that wouldn’t otherwise be able to go. It takes $1100 to cover a full scholarship.

All Yarns are hand painted and kettle dyed. This means that every yarn can vary. If you need multiple yarns for a project, it is highly recommended that you purchase them at the same time so that they can come from the same dye lot. Some of the brighter colors can bleed, even though they have been rinsed multiple times, if you notice this run under cold water until water is clear.
Care: Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry
All products are created in a smoke free and pet friendly environment.
All photographs are used as inspiration for the yarn and are not owned by myself and belong to the franchise/character in which they represent. None of the yarns belong to or are affiliated with any of the fandoms, franchises, or characters for which it is inspired from.

अब रूस पता लगाएगा, अमेरिका के चांद पर जाने की कहानी झूठी है या सच्ची
दुनिया में एक ‘प्रजाति’ होती है- कॉन्सपिरेसिस्ट की. इस प्रजाति का काम होता है दुनिया की हर घटना के पीछे एक षड्यंत्र ढूंढना. ये हर षड्यंत्र को सपोर्ट करते हैं. दुनिया में बहुत सारी कॉन्सपिरेसी थ्योरी हैं, लेकिन उनमें भी सबसे खास है- अमेरिका का मिशन अपोलो. यानी 60 के दशक में अमेरिका के सबसे पहले चांद पर पहुंचने की कहानी.
कॉन्सपिरेसिस्ट्स मानते हैं कि अमेरिका कभी चांद पर पहुंचा ही नहीं था. बल्कि…
Steel on the moon. The Lunar plaques measure 9 inches x 7 & 5⁄8 & were attached to ladders on the descent stages of the Lunar Modules flown on Apollo 11-17. All plaques have a picture of the 2 hemispheres of Earth except Apollo 12! Apollo 17’s plaque has the lunar globe in addition to Earth inscribed on it. Only Apollo 13’s plaque was not left on the moon as the mission had to be aborted. 2 plaques were made for that 1970 mission due to a last minute crew change from astronaut Ken Mattingly to Jack Swigert.

When flying past Venus in July 2020, Parker Solar Probe’s WISPR instrument, short for Wide-field Imager for Parker Solar Probe, detected a bright rim around the edge of the planet that may be nightglow — light emitted by oxygen atoms high in the atmosphere that recombine into molecules in the nightside. The prominent dark feature in the center of the image is Aphrodite Terra, the largest highland region on the Venusian surface. Bright streaks in WISPR, such as the ones seen here, are typically caused by a combination of charged particles — called cosmic rays — sunlight reflected by grains of space dust, and particles of material expelled from the spacecraft’s structures after impact with those dust grains.
Life, forever dying to be born afresh, forever young and eager, will presently stand upon this Earth as upon a footstool, and stretch out its realm amidst the stars.

I am sending this illustration on the moon. Really.
Nighttime on Venus looks gorgeous.
NASA’s Parker Solar Probe captured stunning views of Venus during its close flyby of the planet in July 2020.
Though Parker Solar Probe’s focus is the Sun, Venus plays a critical role in the mission: The spacecraft whips by Venus a total of seven times over the course of its seven-year mission, using the planet’s gravity to bend the spacecraft’s orbit. These Venus gravity assists allow Parker…
The planet Venus, by NASA’s Parker Solar Probe. With the streaks (cosmic rays, dust grains, or debris from dust grain impacts on the probe), the blurry effect of the planet’s thick clouds, and the b&w, the photo reminds me of an old space serial like Flash Gordon. ^_^
