Strikkeklub Askeonsdag -- Ash Wednesday Yarn along

     Det var ikke længe, Uglemor kunne holde sig fra computeren i dag. Der skulle jo lige findes billeder til en artikel, og vips, var internettet åbent, og vupti var Uglemor inde på sin blog, hvor hun opdagede at Ginny som sædvanlig havde sin onsdagsstrikkeklub.
     Uglemor er selvfælgelig begyndt på noget nyt. Dennegang er det dog med en mistanke om ikke at blive færdig lige med det samme. Det er nemlig et par varme vanter. Da det sneede for et par uger siden, var Uglemors fingre lige ved at fryse af. Hendes vidunderlige erantisvanter er tyndslidte efter 4 års heftig brug.
     Hvad læsningen angår er Uglemor faldet over en gammel serie bøger om drager, sange og farer på en fjern planet. "Dragonflight" på billedet her er den første bog af utroligt mange. Dere r også en mere børnet trilogi, "Dragonsong" (Ildøglernes sang på dansk) Og den er fuld af digte og musik. Derfor er Uglemor begyndt at skrive digte igen, måske kommer der mere om det senere.
Nogle af sangene fra bøgerne er sat i musik, og i nogel tilfælde skrevet færdig af Brenda Appleby (lyt her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vvgq9MTmR5Q)



This was not a very long break. MotherOwl had to find some illustrations. 1-2-3 the internet was turned on, and just as fast old habits took over, MotherOwl checked her blog, and lo and behold, Ginny had written her usual  Yarn Along.
And MotherOwl has been knitting again. Something new again. New warm mittens for MotehrOwl. Two weeks ago we had snow, and MotherOwl found out the hard way that her wonderful mittens were worn thin after four years in use. Now Spring is on its way, and MotherOwl suspects that the mittens will not be finished untill lthe first cold spell come Autumn.
While cleaning MotherOwl found several forgotten things, among those this book and its sequels. They are filled with dragons, harpers, drama and danger. MotherOwl likes them very much - enough for a re-read of al of them including the Harper Hall of Pern-trilogy which is written for a younger audience. This trilogy is filled with poems and music. This has made MOtherOwl return to versemaking. Maybe more thereof later.
Some of the sons are set to music and extended by Brenda Appleby (listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vvgq9MTmR5Q)

  1. "Dragons and thread" -- I like what you did there! I also like the combination of colors in the mittens.
