Sock and lace scrap sweater for Polly

February 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

A few skeins of unwanted sock yarn held together with some lace. It was straight ahead, using a simple top-down pattern I’ve used so many times. I had a few issues with the stripes as the amount of yarn in each color pretty much directed the arrangement … Basic and comfy sweater that will be used a lot, but not a big deal really …

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:

First time felting

A very quick and satisfying little project.

When I put them in the washing machine I had no idea if these huge floppy socks eventually would fit the tiny feet of my daughter. They did :)
