These four cones cost £15.95….three of them are pure wool/cashmere, the colours aren’t quite as they are in real life but to be honest, the warehouse is filthy and they are all covered in dirty dust! The largest paler cone is an acrylic mix with a sparkly fibre in it, just right for little girls with an aversion to itchy wool! The detail is better in the larger photo, the sparkley bits really show up well!
……this table full of very dirty yarn cost me just £5, you could get as much as possible into a large binbag, so I did!! Most of the cones have been used a bit but I know there is plenty left for me to play with! I am now going to knit some tension swatches and then wash and dry them. Some of them I will give a wash in the machine to see what they ‘felt’ like. All the yarns are covered in a waxy oil to keep the fibres together so they run through the knitting machine smoothly. Hanging on the dresser, you can see the Hoody I have made for Maisie, it is waiting for a final pressing. The hood was way too long but I did a bit of cut and sew and marked my pattern accordingly so I don’t make the same mistake again.
Happy Knitting Weekend Bloggers!
