Tiffany Aching, the girl who beat the fairy queen with a cast iron fry pan, sat as Kelda for the Feegles, and got the nod of approval from Granny Weatherwax. She wears midnight. She can’t get a shamble to stay together. She danced with the Wintersmith. Tiffany came barreling into the world of Discworld witches with a roar, putting more than a few young ones in their place and impressing some of the more weathered witches. She’s simple to begin with, but has this wonderfully delicate intricacy which seems to be exclusive to girls of her age group. So she just had to be done up on laceweight.
No matter how much midnight she intends to wear, the Chalk will always show through. Small, intentional spots of white illustrate that in this month’s skein. I hope the club members enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed dreaming it up and making it real.
