I love spinning batts as singles yarn. This beautiful batt from Habetrot fibres was called “Darkness” and inspired this Magma yarn, which in turn inspired its owner to design and make this “Queen of Hearts” ponchette. You can see the gradient yarn worked up into the pattern on the ravelry link.
You think the earth is dark and cold under your feet? Not a bit of it.
We are clinging to the skin of a boiling sphere of rock.
Heavy elements swirl below, occasionally breaking the surface to remind us of their presence, and power.
Land, that we like to think of as so permanent. That we like to possess, that through history we have fought over again and again, is destroyed and created constantly.
We seek permanence. Yet the stuff of life is change.
