Do you remember me showing you my singles that I spun using my new Jumbo flyer? Did I post them on here or on Ravelry? Hmm, Ravelry I guess….
Well I am making myself a cardigan from Jo Sharp Knit magazine issue 7. A wonderful person on Ravelry (too many mentions in one blog post if you ask me!) sent me a copy over from Oz, how flipping kind is that? Amazing place this internetland! I found a video link to the cardi here, you might want to turn the sound off….I am using exclusively my handspun yarn and so far it is working out well. It is mostly Shetland and silk and has a wonderful drape to it, only the yoke to finish now and the yarn for that is waiting to be wound into yarn cakes!
Barry bought me a drum carder on Friday and I love it so much, but not as much as I love him, bleugh, sorry,too much info for a Tuesday morning eh? I digress…..but honestly, it is a spinner’s dream and creating batts is so addictive, the one above is my very first one I made using merino, silk, alpaca and a bit of angelina, so very soft and very pretty. I might spin this up today.
Here is little Imogen in her new cardigan, I love this photo, her expression is so funny! Note the AbFab vest bit showing, remember Patsy getting out of the taxi after a night out with her bodysuit unpoppered? Clicky
I handcarded some rolags for this cardi, three graduating colours using merino, alpaca and angora, oh and of course a little girl has to have a bit of sparkle added too.
I am a bit cross that there isn’t an awful lot of room in the cardi, Imogen has had a growth spurt since we last saw her at Christmas, still it should fit her for a little while…..
