This was one half of a skill swap. In return for hooking up a crochet pattern for me, I received two beautiful rolag sets to spin into yarn. This is one of those rolag sets.


I’m in the presence of royalty. Quite unexpected. I’m a stranger here. I don’t know who this person is, but I know their position. How? It’s called “royal purple” for a reason. The most precious of all colours. Harvested from sea snails, each tiny mollusc giving up a single drop of purple dye. And look around. Flowers from the hot house, colours rarely seen in nature. Servants to tend the orchids and fine, saffron-spiced food. Only the best here. Only the best for the fewest people.
