This is, no surprise, really really great.
This is really interesting! Do you guys feel this way when you write? I think I only do sometimes, and I would categorize those times as when I feel “inspired” or when “the muses speak to me”, etc. But it’s definitely not how I feel when I’m slogging away at something.
This is really weird because I’m pretty sure I wrote the comment right above this one, but it’s not sourced anywhere. Also weird that I can find something on Tumblr and be sure that I wrote it.(via yeahwriters)

Once I got lost in a second-hand warehouse (the word “shop” doesn’t do it justice) and emerged with a bag full of hanks of fine, soft cotton yarn. And although I liked its original creamy colour, I like variegated yarns even more.
My first attempt at dyeing yarn was a laughable failure - after putting it in a dye bath with hibiscus petals, the cotton was paler, if anything. Given that I had no information on my yarn’s origins, method of production, and so on, I decided it’d be best to go with chemical fiber dyes.
So. My second attempt: amaranth, orange, salmon, and apricot (which doesn’t look like apricot at all, but it gives it a colder touch, so it’s okay). Am I proud? You bet.
