Summer Nights

Summer Nights


Cara from Excelsior Yarns is one of my very favourite dyers and I was lucky enough to be asked to test her dyed fibre. It was an absolute dream to spin, so soft and had a beautiful scent. I offered this skein as a competition prize on my facebook page.


Summer nights are not like other nights. Hardly nights at all.

The sun stays up late, eavesdropping on the talk, pretending to mind its own business as it paints the sky with lazy sweeps of sunset-pink, and casts purple shades on the clouds.

These are the nights of the philosopher, quaffing her drink. Of setting the world to rights and chewing the big ideas.

These are the nights to forge deep bonds of friendship. To find out who your companions really are. To find out who you yourself really are.

These are the nights you never forget.
