Arctic Equinox

Arctic Equinox


Another chance to revel in the beauty of a Hilltop Cloud gradient pack, this yarn was commissioned as a gift for a new knitter.

The fibre flows through my hands. Rippled and vivid, depths of colour for senses to dive into.

Clear turquoises and deep blues, like a river cutting the landscape, meandering to and fro.

Looking up from the landscape to the broad horizon. Sun dipping down, glowing deep, burnished gold. Soon to give way to the rich, dark night.

This equality happens but twice a year; time giving equal attention to its day and night children. Winter is on its way. And the arctic landscape embraces it.
