spinning the sky



Ever lie on your back staring at the blue, blue sky? (Not that people in the UK had much chance of that last summer.) Ever been amazed at the vivid colours that appear in nature?




Some of the of the bundle of tops I bought in Hay on Wye are the colour of the sky on a summers day. I gently blended them with white merino as if they were clouds chasing across the sky.




Jago says when I have my basket of carded batts that I'm a giant spinning the sky. He's making me look at colours in a new way - how the hedgerow shades would look blended into a yarn... I love the fact I'm seeing the world with a three year old engaging with his fascination and sense of wonder.

  1. Little ones have the best views on the world. I hate that time and responsibility take those away from us. Keep spinning the sky!!!!

    1. I think I have spinning addiction... who knew I'd spent most evenings (when I'm not knitting) spinning fluff? I love it!

  2. Your yarn does look like sky! We did some sky watching in the summer, I love the clouds. Gorgeous blue colours. Kids do have a way of making us look at the world with fresh eyes. x
