The Question Is...



what do I make with this wonderful fiber??
I am having so much fun staring at it, touching it, photographing it. I know,I know - it's starting to get a little creepy, but I love this yarn sooo much and I want to make sure I do it justice by finding the right pattern. I love how bright the pink is, and I love how when wound into a cake it comes out with this argyle-type look. Now I'd love to find a pattern. Any suggestions?

When I saw it in the boot, I was like, ehhhhh. But your new pictures are like, wow. This yarn should definitely be worn above the waste. Do you have enough for a shrug. If not, maybe a hat.

Look up the book Get Your Crochet On at Amazon.com for a book that will never make it to the Knit Picks library.

It would make killer fingerless mitts...and how punk rock girly would that be? Very. Esp. with a little picot edging...oh la la!

Love that photo on the grey background. :)

I had some wool that was similarly dyed - different colour though - and I knitted, and unpicked, and tried again with different widths to make a scarf. It was fascinating the patterns that emerged. Eventually I ended up with 30 stitches cast on in a moss stitch pattern and it looks like the most awesome 2 way zig-zag argyle type thing.

Definately worth experimenting with.
