As usual with greens, the photo doesn't really do it justice. It's a gorgeous rich colour, 2 ply, 50% lambswool & 50% cotton which is incredibly soft. Pictured also are my newly purchased crochet hooks just itching to get to work, but for the right pattern I would knit with it. All suggestions gratefully received.
I also fancy making something with this lovely random-dyed cotton DK for the summer.
I knitted a pair of socks here with it and now they've been washed, I think the yarn would look lovely with faded denim in the summer. Again, any suggestions please?
Finally, on the subject of fibre, here I asked for ideas with the coarse shetland-type wool I had. Poppy Cottage kindly sent me some bag patterns. One that she had knitted with a pointy bottom (the bag, that is, not her) sounded good, so I adapted the pattern slightly to include a flap and a shoulder strap. This is a photo of it drying after it's 2nd 60 degrees machine wash, stuffed with a football for shape. I've got a nice button to finish it off and still got loads of wool left. What do you think?
