Inflamed ambition

Remember this?


The Inferno roving from Copperpot.

This is what I am currently spinning. I am not entirely sure that I know what I am doing, but I have split the colours out as best I can and I am spinning the red and the orange alternately. The purple I have put aside. The red/orange will be spun thick/thin. Later on I will ply the purple to it. I hope to include a copper thread. I am not sure yet if that will be a separate third ply or if I will spin or ply it with the purple first. Assuming I can get something, anything, like I envisage that is.

I would like to spin something interesting into this. I have copper coloured beads to hand, but I think that my orifice is too small for such an ambition…

There’s a long way to go. I have two lumps of this stuff.


The washing is almost done… and there was more of it than I had remembered. Since most of it leaked colour I have to wonder why I saved it all up for washing together. I have saved no water/detergent/effort as I had to keep refreshing the bowl in order to get rid of the dye. *sigh*

I have almost every spare pillowcase in the house deployed in readiness for spinning. Hopefully that will not just keep things tidy but will also stop the colour from going where it is not wanted.

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
