Glasgow City Nights



So it didn't turn out exactly how I planned, but I think this yarn was fated to have another colourway name; Glasgow City Nights. It reminds me of autumn, fireworks, dark evenings and orange city lights against red sandstone tenements.

Speaking of fireworks; thank you to the 3 moronic twats who felt it would be just hilarious to light a rocket directly outside our house at 3.30 am. I was unable to get asleep again for quite some time, so busy was my brain furiously penning letters to MSPs. We found the rocket this morning next to the car - I was all for submitting it to Toryglen polis for fingerprinting ...


With thanks to the boy for putting up with me and driving me around Glasgow during the 20 minutes of perfect 'evening sky' for some good blog pics.

I read this post before the last one, saw the yarn and thought "wow! kingfisher!" Whatever the name, it looks wonderful.

I thought fireworks wre illega\l after midnight (or is it even 10pm) now? Shot out of my skin when one went off near me at 6.30 this evening...

If I had dyed that yarn I would be so proud. It looks fan bloody tastic, the colour intervals look brilliant on your sock. x K

I love the dyed yarn. It is beautiful. I am also wondering if you have a picture wearing the pinwheel sweater. I am working on my sleeves and then hope to have enough yarn to make it a bit bigger. It is a lovely pattern and I love the sweater. I may get ambitious enough to make more.
