Now don't go into shock but this week saw me complete a knitted project. A simple idea, inspired by this funky lady, but I am considerably slower at knitting than crochet..... And I have a don't go below 4mm needle rule which I had to break so I could use some of my fine handspun merino and silk yarn.
I've been spurred on by quick sales of my cowls from last week to make another cowl from my own handspun yarn. This one I carded alpaca with a blended colour merino. I love how it turned out and it is so soft to wear too. Might just have to find some more alpaca...
Now available at The Ferry Artists Gallery
So anyway on the weekend there was a bit of kid crafting going on. This easter idea came from here. I used PVA glue with water(3:1), embroidery cotton and water bomb balloons. Advice:
