FOR WHETHER WE ARE WHITE OR COPPER SKINNED,
WE NEED TO SING WITH ALL THE VOICES OF THE MOUNTAINS,
WE NEED TO PAINT WITH ALL THE COLOURS OF THE WIND.

Avert your eyes - it's not a pretty sight. You know how things have to get worse before they get better? Well, it did...
Crafting again - wahoo! I've been asked to make some Christmassy stuff so am having fun! Any ideas as to what the linen and red/white strips are for??
Go on, have a guess....there might be a small prize if you make me laugh :-)
Variegated yarn, I love it. The way the tones change, the excitement as a colour I really love comes into view, the relief when a detested colour is sent on its way (until the next time of course...) How sad is that?
I fell in love with this...the fact that it says Passion and Chunky on the label has nothing to do with it.... ;-) Look at those yummy colours. As I often have several projects on the go at once (flutterby brain, you see) I am using this yarn in both crochet and knitting. And it's really interesting to see how the colours appear quite differently between the two.
The crochet appears to be so much darker than the knitting - you wouldn't say they came from the same dye lot, would you?
Even when I matched the exact colours together, they looked different - I definitely prefer the knitted version. I found a different sort of rib pattern whilst browsing on the net - would you believe that there are no purl stitches only the occasional purl slipped stitch? It makes it a much quicker process and I really like the effect. Almost like a loose Fishermens' Rib....and you know what they say about loose Fishermen....their tackle is never taut :-)
To end...just take a peek at this:
What can I say, except THANK YOU!! They will be heading off to the Refuge very shortly.
You are wonderful xxxx
