Combo SAL

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Interested in plying different handpainted colourways together? Then come and join us for the Combo SAL (rav link) in the Spunky group on Ravelry.

I’ve been stash diving this afternoon and have selected the following colourways. From left to right, 60 g/2 oz each of:
- Sherwood in BFL
- Banff in Shetland
- Road Trip in Corriedale/Alpaca

All colourways by Spunky Eclectic

Handspun Sock WIPs

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

The sockfest continues. It has been a heap of fun digging through the handspun stash and finding gems I’d forgotten about.

Adrian and I are doing a handspun sock swap (on the needles). Whee!

In the pile (top to bottom):
- SCF Amazonia
- SCF 3-ply for sock swap
- Hello Yarn Hive (done and waiting for photoshoot)
- Spunky Eclectic Retreat

Flocked Mittens

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

I test knit one of these for Adrian while visiting in October and the other when I got home. They’ve now been reunited in Massachusetts and will hopefully keep Mr HelloYarn’s hands toasty.

Outer mitten (with plain hem and no braid option) is knit from Quince & Co Lark in “Honey” and “Pea Coat”. Lining knit from Hello Yarn Sock in “Picholine”.

Flocked Mittens pattern available through Ravelry
