aka what I'm working on.I started this on Friday, a new hat for me. It'a Celtic cable pattern, for the band, the stitches being picked up around a long edge when the band is completed. I dyed the wool quite a while ago, all food colourings; it's quite attractive knitted up, and I'm pleased with it so far. Any easy pattern of only 8 rows, but looks impressive!
It's been a while since I did a completely original design bigger than a hat, so I'm about to launch into a Charleston inspired sleeveless pullover for myslef - that's Charleston as in Bloomsbury group, not the dance lol. The colours in my Rowan stash are just right for this:
I maanged a couple of hours spinning this afternoon too - perfect indoor work for a chilly late autumn Sunday. This is washed Suffolk, spun from teh fleece, noc arding. It's nicet o spin, quite "woolly", and I'll do enough for what I have in mind, then have a go with the new acid dyes I got a while back, which I've never sued before, so that should be fun.
Wee bit of vintage glam for a Sunday
