I got the yarn for the hat stripe plied (on the spindle, I do love my Bosworth. She may be fairly common and unadorned, but damn does she spin like a dream.) and dyed. It’s a mini-skein in a semi-solid deep green. I like it. It’s got a little bit of sheen, which is cool.
I also got three rovings dyed, some new fibers too! Ooooh. Aaaaaah.
And I spent some time with my stones and findings, and made three more sets of stitch markers, and two for contemplation (that is, deciding if I like them or not).
First, we have some soft ones, in soothing colors and focusing on rose quartz, a healing stone.
White Howlite – Amazonite – Rose Quartz
Then we have the other end of the spectrum, from light and airy to dark and earthy. Focusing on moss agate, a stone of emotional balance… something we can usually use when knitting things with markers. They also snowflake obsidian, another balancer, good for confronting ego… like knitting. Finally, serpentine, for inner peace. Huh… there might be a theme here. Couldn’t be, no nope, not at all. I’m not stressed, nope!
Moss Agate – Snowflake Obsidian – Serpentine
Then we have these, which are darker, but more intensely colored.
Sodalite – White Howlite – Poppy Jasper
Finally the ones up for consideration.
Rose Quartz – White Howlite – Moss Agate x4
Snowflake Obsidian – Leopard Skin Jasper – Magnetite
And that’s what I got done. I’ll get the new rovings posted when they’re dry.
Today’s fairy is less humanoid than most of the others before. Bet you never knew some squash were really fairy plants, did you?
