I’ve been using my knitting machine to create some DK blanks, which create a unique striping dye pattern, which you can’t achieve by just dying the yarn in a hank. So when you knit straight from the blank (good for hats) it will create stripes in the work. Finished dying some speckled yarn too. I cast on a new project last night using my own handspun, I’m trying my own pattern to make ear warmers, I’m thinking of lining them with some hand made felt too. All will be heading over to my Etsy soon.
What creative things have you been up to this past 7 days?
Lumpy space princess is the diva that inspired this bouncy hank of luxurious sock yarn. It is 80% superwash Merino, 10% cashmere for the softest squeeze 10% nylon (for socks that last). I only have one available at the moment, I’m only dying one/two hanks at a time until I get a feel for what people are liking. I can’t wait to give one of these a try also I’m keen to take part in the boxosoxkal2017 (box of socks knit along 2017) where at the end of the year you have a beautiful box full of hand knitted socks. I must finish my W.I.P mittens first though, and there’s that #findyourfade shawl project I want to do too. So many project such little time! Yarn available in my Etsy shop HERE. 🌈🦄
