Kiwiyarns Knits

A blog about New Zealand yarns, knitting and life



I see in this yarn the beauty of fire

it catches the rays of the evening sun

the silken fibres glowing, radiant.


I decided to give you my mental and visual interpretation of this yarn today.

This ball of yarn makes me wax poetic.   It sends shivers down my spine with its beauty – I’ve  played with the raw image to give you what I see in my head; what inspires me to knit it into an interpretation of beauty that I can wear.

It is so beautiful.  I have been swatching it for the past couple of days.

I think I have hit upon a pattern.

More about it tomorrow!

  1. I can pretty well see why it makes you poetic.. that yarn is absolutely gorgeous !
    I’m very curious what pattern you decide upon..

  2. Goodness! It’s positively volcanic! Reminds me of a fire when the Peat/logs/coals have been burning and you have a hot fire … where, when you look into it you can see pictures, while you knit away and the weather rages outside.
    I mentioned to you before my almost envious feeling of you now being in Autumn, while here we are in Spring moving into summer … maybe, though it’s doubtful, you should see the weather we’re having, you would never think we are in Spring! It’s our own fault though that the weather has turned upside down we have been so careless with such a precious, beautiful thing.

  3. Oh I lOVE that photo! Can you email me a copy for my FB page please 🙂

  4. Can you see the similarities between your yarn and the type of fire I mentioned? …

    How tantalizing, I can’t believe that we will have to wait another whole day to see your samples and decision on what to make with this fabulous yarn … the suspense is killing me! Cruel, cruel!

  5. Oh my goodness! Firey indeed! I love how you altered the photo. I’m sure you’re going to give it due justice when you knit it up!

  6. No wonder you love this yarn, it is pretty, pretty, pretty! I’m very excited to see what you do with it.
