Air Stash

Hardly worth calling a stash!

Air: White, Grey, Yellow

300 grammes of BFL commercially spun 4ply yarn, some alpaca fibre to spin (can’t wait!), and a somewhat desperate inclusion of  two yarns from a Colinette grab bag (neither of which is honestly grey) – and no yellow in the house at all.

I daresay the BFL will form some kind of Shetland lace scarf  light and, er, airy. I’d like to get enough yardage from the alpaca to make a pair of fingerless gloves – I suppose I shall need it blend it to eke it out.

The Colinette? Freeform, maybe, or felting projects. To be honest, it tells me that it belongs in the Earth group and will need to represent ploughed furrows and stone dykes in some felted piece. I should listen.

What I do have is plenty of white and off white fleece to play with, and some white skeins already spun. I can use these as whites, or dye some yellow or grey. In terms of challenge, this group may prove to be the most fun of the four elements because I shall have to be creative and stretch my resources, ideas, and skills.

What might  be fun would be to spin up examples of all my white fleeces and then create something that works with all the off whites and differing textures…

I am open to all gifts/swaps of yellow fibre/yarns, though! Perhaps a swap for something from my over-subscribed Fire group?

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
