I’m so ashamed of myself. Yarn greed got the better of me…
My cashmere/silk cobweb weight yarn arrived from Posh Yarn. Soon to be two of Eunny's Print o'the wave stoles. (Very quick service from Posh Yarns and beautifully packaged by the way). The colours are raspberry and ivory. Although I would describe it more as strawberry than raspberry now that I’ve seen it in the flesh.
The other day I happened to be reading Ysolda'sand she had just been shopping at the Cucumberpatch. Nice, I thought but carried on reading, then I saw her photo and she had bought Rowan Polar. How could I resist? I’d been wanting some for ages.
When I checked out the Cucumerpatch website they had LOADS of really great Rowan wool in their sale. So I bought some Rowanspun chunky too! The polar is going to be turned into
two shrugs and the polar is going to be a comfy stay at home jumper for me in the autumn.
Cucumberpatch were also very quick at delivering, plus they gave me a free sew-on Rowan label! I’ve seen a few of these for sale on various sites now. What do you think of the idea? My husband wants me to sew it on his jumper I made him because he keeps wearing it back to front…
I know this is a terrible photo but I haven’t managed to get a better one yet but I will by the end of the weekend. This is my Debbie Bliss Pure Silk top . I’ll tell you more about how it was to knit when I have some better photos.
