yesterday was a day full of stitches...
today, not a stitch has been knit
but as promised
i have a beanie to show you.
i loved knitting up this wool
'cos it was never the same blend of colour.
sometimes more solid
but always an interesting and delectable colour combination,
carefully thought out.
it isn't the easiest yarn to knit.
it's very soft and very light
on 5.5mm needles, quite loosely woven.
the fibre itself is 50% wool and 50% acrylic
and is marketed 'splendour' by lincraft.
they recommend a cool machine wash
but it's probably just as easy to wash by hand.
although it looks baggy on ted
i think next time i'll add a bit more length
for more slouch.
going to church was the event of the morning...
i'm just about to get changed and go for a swim,
the heat and humidity
are at human melting point!
take care and have fun!
