Dusk


A gorgeous batt from Oregon Flock and Fiber 2006 that is quickly becoming a beautiful yarn. I took advantage of our brief glimpse of sunshine earlier this week and snapped a picture. The subtle variation of colours is delightful and it truly captures dusk at springtime in my neighbourhood. The pinks of the cherry blossoms and hyacinths and the moodiness of the sky, trees and mountains.

Those colors are so, so, so pretty! That sunshine is fleeting isn't it? Oh, and to answer your orchid question. You can use orchid fertilizer to help them re-bloom but I find mine like neglect. You are better off underwatering orchids, rather than overwatering. They really don't like that. Also, once orchids have finished blooming you should cut down the stem. Anywhere from 2 notches from the bottom to all the way at the bottom. Don't give up on them either. You almost have to forget about them and one day you will notice that there is a new stem poking out!

That's one of those batts that you don't want to spin up because it's so pretty and you won't have it to look at anymore. Then it's the kind of yarn that's too pretty to knit!

Dusk! What a superb name for those colors. Wow. I hope it is as delicious to spin as it is to look at.

Oh, @#$%^! That's beautiful. Absolutely perfectly named too.

Sigh. Now I have to learn how to spin. Good thing my spoiler SP9 pal sent me a lovely spindle and some BFL roving.

As if I didn't have enough fibre-related distractions luring me from the rest of my life.
