Eventually these tiny stitches will end up in a piece of fabric and something you can actually wear :)

Harvesting Rowan Tweed

… and a single merino/silk from DesignClub.

My local yarn store is selling out as they are moving their business online. Sad, as we need those stores, to physically touch and smell the fibers. There was a discount of 50% on selected yarns, which brought me back home with a beautiful collection of Rowan fine tweed and felted tweed DK. I’ve always had a soft spot for the colors and feel of Rowan’s tweed. It’s beautiful, don’t you think?

Rowan felted tweed DK, color way: Bilberry

Fine tweed, colorway: Settle

Fine tweed, colorway: Hubberholme

Fine tweed, colorway: Murker

Fine tweed, colorway: Nidd

550 g. in total for DKr.331/$58 :)

Oh … and a single skein of light-fingering merino and silk for summer:

… and three pink palm tree buttons:

That was it! :)

Balls of PINK !!!

February 1, 2012 § 4 Comments

I’ve been craving for true pink for some time now. The question was; how bright can I go? Here is the answer:

Filatura Di Crosa: Sportwool, 100% pure new superwash wool, 50 g = 125 m/136 yrds + Madil Yarns: Kid Seta, 70% mohair, 30% silk, 25 g = 210 m/230/ yrds.

I’m satisfied :) and plan to make a comfy – and very bright – sweater. It’s a soft superwash wool from Filatura Di Crosa and a fine silk mohair from Madil Yarn. I go for a cowl or for a cable sweater:

The cowl sweater will be such a quick and simple knit, whereas the cabled has more risky fitting issues, it looks more interesting though …

While I was dreaming away in pink I made my daughter this cute little headband:

Pattern: Twin Cities Headband by Allyson Dykhuizen · Yarn: 70% wool + 30 Soya · Colorway: Purple/Blue · Needles: 3.5 mm

Where Am I?
