Golden yarn

The colour gold has played a big part in my fiber-related activities recently. I don’t remember ever being attracted to this colour other than in the last few years. I started by gradually acquiring some shiny yellowy-gold yarns. And then I knit the Eiffel Tower Shawl, of course. That was in some Sundara silk lace that I saw & had to have right away. Golden yellow has now become one of my go-to colours, and it’s shown up again this week.

First, there’s the Tudor Ruffles scarf that I’m making for me. I’m using fingering weight Yvieknits Sock Yarn in the middle and Fleece Artist O’Paca on the edges for the ruffles. I’m showing this to you now because if I don’t make it public there’s a chance I won’t finish it while it’s still cold outside.

I just need to keep knitting away on this and getting a couple of ripples done each day and it’ll be finished before I know it.

A lovely arrival that brightened up my week was a box of golden fluff from the Cupcake Fiber Company. Joan (of The Fairy GodKnitter) had this bright idea of packaging up 6 separate 1 oz. batts with the thought that it’ll be easy to spin it & turn it into 2 skeins of 3 ply to make socks. Her colours are lovely, and I just had to jump in and get this box.

Now I need the courage to spin this. Well, and I need to finish off my current batch of spinning first, really. Soon, my precious, soon!

    Isn’t it amazing the colors that we find ourselves drawn to?

    You’ll love her batts. They are light, airy and a joy to spin.
