Hello. How are you all?
I don't seem to have had a lot of write about lately, or maybe it's just a bit of a blog break, I 'm hoping I'll be a bit more inspired ( and inspiring!) through August ( another month gone already!!) I need to get back in the swing of regular blogging, I think I will try for once a day posting even if it just something visual. This year is really moving, I feel like I am getting a bit left behind, with my plans never getting the attention they need! Maybe the answer is not to make plans!
Anyhoo, The other day I went to the Stitches and Craft show in Melbourne with a couple of my friends. There were a lot of women there!!
I came home with this lovely yarn from Dairing. It is a cotton/ stainless steel mix so when you knit it up it is a fabric that you can shape and manipulate, pretty amazing!
I bought 3 spools, a lovely mushroom pink, a pale green and a grey, I am thinking I could make some interesting crocheted jewellery with this stuff. It is really thin yarn!!
I also bought 2 spools of a fine cotton in a denimy blue and a straw yellow, I don't know what I'm going to make with these.
And I bought a scarf kit in a nice metallic blue that had a thread of the stainless steel mixed with a thread of cotton all ready to knit into a scarf. Apparently this is a good way to see if you like using this unusual yarn, as it is quite fiddley to knit with. This is my beginnings, it is very fine work and easy to get the wrong thread, and it is slippery and kept sliding off my needles, so patience are needed! This could be a very slow project!
So there are my new buys, ( bought on a bit of a whim, I admit), I don't usually use such fine yarns, anyone got any ideas for what I could make with them? Has anyone used this yarn before?
Got any tips?
..........on anther note, our kitten likes to spend time contemplating the great outdoors, he is still a bit scared of the actual outside, but I think he is building up his courage.
Have a great day!
