So these happened, and they feel like a curious strand of previously untapped interest emerging from the shadows. I'll admit that they both intrigue and disturb me; both in the most positive of ways. As they were hanging side by side to dry, where I could observe the dye patterns fully, I was reminded of the most tender and vulnerable of places, the bellies of newborn kittens and puppies, of piglets with their tiny corkscrew tails. The under color is so sweet, so innocent, the palest of blush pink, lavender, and a faded and greyed robin's egg blue. Then there are bold splashes and patches of black and dark smoke, which immediately turn a child's palette into the provocative realm of jesters, clowns, and fools. And we'd have been fine to stay there, but the muse carried on, splashing redcurrant cordial onto one corner of the skeins, lifting her gaze to mine as if to say, "There. Now what are you going to do with that?"

What indeed. Add to the irony that this yarn is deceptively light and smooth, incredibly soft as it slips through your fingers whilst knitting.

It will be fascinating to see who is drawn to these; perhaps it is you?
