I Love a Good Yarn

Yarn, stories, and sometimes stories about yarn

For a good part of the 80s and 90s, I wore black from head to toe. I dyed my hair black, wore thick black eyeliner – I was a punk rocker, a goth, and really into the look.


This was taken in 1992 in a London basement flat I shared with two friends when we were all there on student work permits. Fun days.

My look has matured (gotten boring, to be honest), and I now embrace color, but I’m often still pretty monochromatic when it comes to my day-to-day wardrobe. I have lots of blue and grey, still a fair amount of black.

So, I kind of surprised myself in thinking about today’s topic. I was going to write about my love of earth tones, jewel tones, grey, and beige, but when I took a peek in the stash, I realized that it’s bursting with all sorts of vibrant colors. These will someday be cozy socks:

And I bought these beauties because they were on sale and I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I had originally thought to do a shawl with them, but now I think they may want to be a sweater.File Mar 22, 1 15 36 PM

Maybe something short-sleeved for spring?
