How yarn is like art

Walking into a shop full of yarn is like walking into an art gallery. The array of colours, the different textures, and the one that pulls you in to connect with it. That special one feels like it's made with you in mind. You may not have a need for it but it sings out to you, giving you a warm glow of happiness.



This yarn truly got me thinking how yarn is like art with the beauty of the colour combinations. I just want to keep looking at it from different angles.



And so, before I do dive in, I thought I would appreciate the wonder of it just as it is....


...the reds, the pinks, the blues, the purples....


It makes me think of cranberries, Rowan trees, mixed spice and bright autumnal days...


Soon I will cast it on to the equally pretty looking double-pointed needles to start some Cranford Mitts.


But for now, I'm going to admire the beauty of the bundle of yarn just as it is.
