Do you remember Fraggle Rock? The vibrant colours in these fibre blends brought me right back to the adventures of these childhood companions!

“Dance your cares away,” they said. “Worry’s for another day.”

I challenge you to feel anything other than happy when looking at these colours.

The oranges of Red’s amazing, expressive hair, the purple of Gobo, the blue of Mokey – truly a noble race! Captured in yarn to surround you with good cheer.

So, let the music play!

Helluva Helix

Standard
Helluva Helix

Background:

A first experiment in spiral plying.

Story:

Have you ever had one of those problems, that no matter how hard you try to solve, just keeps coming round again?

“Here I am again,” you think, as your previously-vanquished foe returns yet again.

“It’s a vicious circle,” you think. You think of going round and round and round, never escaping.

But what if that circle were actually a helix? And you’re not returning to the same spot, but climbing up, learning something new each time, gradually working your way to the surface.

Glorious Technicolor Part II

Standard
Glorious Technicolor Part II

Background:

This was a repeat order of some beautiful thick and thin yarn. What I particularly love about this is the way my creations were sent out into the world and inspired more creativity.

Story:

Glorious celebrations of colour:

Lapis – an Afghan midnight

Onyx – dark and mysterious

Ruby – blood-red gem

Indigo – brought to life by the sun

Opal – beauty from scattering of light

Ultramarine – deep blues of the sea

Silver – pure, white elegance.

Teal – delicious blends of blue and green

Ecru – earthy white

Cyan – a colour primary! One of the ABCs of inks

Hazel – autumnal shades

Navy – uniform blue

Ivory – creamy white and musical

Coral – delicate pink of the sea creature

Ochre – ancient dye. A link to the past

Lilac – pale purple of the garden

Olive – deep, dark, savoury green

Rainbows – nature’s paint box
