First up - nevermind about commenting on the prvious post anymore as I have made the purchase! Woot Woot! More details on the new sewing machine to follow, but for now, I have yesterday's tease to make good on!
I'm very happy with how it turned out :) And thankfully, so is Mum!
i was a little worried to begin with that the yarn was too rustic - it have a slight fuzz to it from being frogged out of the initial sock knit. But as I progressed it turned out to be fine, phew!
The colours are great! - courtesy of Amy King's Spunky Eclectic style, as this fibre was from a long ago fibre-of-the-month-club delivery.
I'm feeling very enthused to knit more with handspun in 2009 and beyond - it's always such a satisfying feeilng to have been involved in so much of the process. Once I've spun up all my lovely stashed pre-coloured fibre I want to get into dyeing up my own a bit more too.. oooh the possibilities!
This will be my last post for 2008 - Scrumptious and I are just having a quiet one together on the couch to see in 2009, and there's some tasty illusions and a fdun new ps3 game awaiting me - I must fly!! So wishing you all a most excellent, safe and celebratory evening and a lovely first morning of 2009! :)
