“Knitting this yarn put me in another time and place, but one that I can’t quite identify. The colour of the yarn is subtle, almost dusky in a way. The gloss is reminiscent of … what… Rayon? It’s almost indefinable, but there is a whiff of Granny’s dressing table about it. Something in my experience, long ago. A memory so distant that I can’t reach out far enough to grab it. Something 1930’s or 1940’s about it. Something that was old, even when I was very young.”
