My favourite place on earth, Long Beach, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, is a vast sandy beach with views west to the horizon. Constantly battered by the wild Pacific, this is a beautiful place of patterns in the sand and thick tangled forest.
Driftwood is a calm and slightly warm neutral, inspired by the sand and sun-bleached driftwood where you sit while you listen to the waves roll in. The colour is subtle, like driftwood which has been turned to a silvery shimmering taupe by light and salt.
The featured base this month is Twinkle DK, one of my softest and most luxurious yarns!

I love how this yarn sparkles and shines, and really highlights the beauty of this colourway. It’s a great yarn for lace, because each stitch has great definition and clarity.
Twinkle Light is perfect for accessories and lightweight garments. It’s SO soft that it can be worn next to the skin by the most sensitive of knitters.
You can get this month’s colour, or sign up for a 3, 6, or 8 month club subscription, and get up to 15% discount, and ‘front of line’ privileges for ordering more yarn… at your discount!
