We had a beautiful sunny day here today, a perfect day for a quick yarn trip although further inland and down out of the hills, it was quite foggy, Graig-na-managh included, which was my destination; Cushendale Wollen Mills to be exact! I use their yarns in all my tuition, I find it’s superb for the purpose as the stitch definition is perfect, not to mention the colours… Oh, how I can drool over that colour card!
After a joyful encounter with Philip Cushen himself, I extracted the couple of kilos of mixed yarn goodies that I needed and when I was leaving I turned around to have a look at the mill. It’s beautifully old and well preserved, and today – in the fog – the exterior colours were just as magical as the wool on the interior!
Look at the colours on that lean-to shed, aren’t they just inspiring? To me it is simply magical.
