Fire Stash

The Fire stash is something of an embarrassment (Fire runs February/March – so I am on a losing streak here). Worse still, this isn’t all of it – I forgot to include some WIP yarns

Fire: Red, Orange, Pink


In addition to this little lot, I have the Violet Green Stroud Supersock in Red Hot Sox, some Hipknits silk lace in shades of orange and creamy yellow, and the cashmere 2ply in dusky pink. Also some pink tops coming. Not to mention the grey/red mohair/merino tops currently on my wheel. Eek!

From left to right:  unknown Colinette from grab bag, Noro Implessions (could go in any group, it has so many shades in it), my handspun Delightful merino (already made one hat), Inferno tops, Orkney Angora in Clover, Hipknits Silk Aran in Vibrant (leftovers), soy silk tips for spinning (I’m learning to drop spindle with it), unknown Colinette mohair from grab bag, Torch Island tops, Hipknits Aran Silk in Knox to frog from a failed Clapotis, fragment of red mohair from Colinette.

It’s a lot to get through!

The angora is earmarked for bed socks, the tops are for spinning fun – I have no plans for any of the remainder photographed. The Red Hot Sox is for Firestarters, the cashmere is for mitts, and the silk lace is for a practice run at lead or follow, so that I don’t spoil the blue/green yarn. Am I mad? Probably!

The funny thing is, I’m not a fan of any of the three colours in this group – so how did I end up with all this stash, plus what I have used already? (Araucania in Kenaz bag, mohair in Dragon Scale mitts, Torch Island in Noro Hat, Delightful in Spring Cap)

Much of this lot could be up for interesting swaps… interested?

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

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

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
