It took just over 2 balls of Rowan DK pure wool. I was left with a couple more balls so made another one for my shop.
I think that it would look nice in a tweedy yarn too.
At the moment though I am totally uninspired by my knitting, I think my knitting mojo has gone.
I have ideas for my shop in my head but can't be bothered to get started with them. I have a lovely cabled sweater on the go but feel daunted by it and I have a few odd balls of yarn that I don't want to get rid off but haven't a clue what to make with them.
So I have decided to set myself the odd ball challenge!
I am going to knit all the odd balls in my stash up and have started with some felted tweed fingerless gloves. (Holding 2 strands together for the DK as seen above)
But I do have some really small yardage balls (as seen above, aran felted tweed, 1 ball in pink) and not a clue what to do with them. Any good book suggestions would be gratefully recieved or ideas that I could work out a pattern for.
Oh, and I went back to my old ways the other day. I threw a whole knit away in disgust. I haven't done that for a long time but it took me so long to make and turned out rubbish and the yarn wasn't worth frogging. I think that it is because I didn't blog it, blogging helps keep me on track!
