Oh, the synchronicity of life….
Just moments after my post yesterday, this appeared in my Facebook feed:
Just as well I don’t mind laughing at myself…
I did do some knitting, too.
I’ve cast on for a shawl commission using fab reclaimed/recycled yarn from Darn Good Yarns:
This is knitted with their ‘Chunky Monkey‘ yarn in lavender tones (sorry about the crappy lighting…). It’s just garter stitch on 9mm needles – the yarn has so much character, fancy stitching isn’t needed.
slightly extremely addicted to their silk ribbon yarn, and am busily amassing a collection of colours to play with when I’m finished with this latest commission. The colours! The texture! And every skein is different… *ahem* There will eventually be some scarves, and so forth making their way into my Etsy shop (though, as so far I keep selling them before I can list them, do feel free to get in touch and book your colourway!)
The lovely (albeit dangerous) thing with fair trade yarn is that you can stash-build without guilt, knowing that you’re helping other people as well as yourself 😉
