Newsflash: yarn invasion rocks quiet cul-de-sac

I wedged a desk into a tiny corner this spring so I'd have a dedicated place to write fiction, but over the past few weeks, it has Evolved, and yesterday - well, a picture tells a thousand words etc.:

The yarn in front is the smoky reds and greys of Pompeii and the green in behind is just plain delicious; both are due to be knitted up shortly. (A young friend took one look at the Pompeii and asked me to make fingerless gloves, and I give you three guesses* what I'm going to do with the green.)

I got this new haul from MidnightSheep, aka my resourceful artist friend Helena who has used a soft squishy 100% merino base for these colours. You might wish to check out her blog as she is not only creative and inspiring, but a very fine writer to boot!

* hat, hat hat.
