First Colinette AbFab Finished
Rachel's throw is finished!! And just in time because her birthday is next Tuesday.
You can tell I'm pleased - three pictures instead of one! What do you think? It's nice isn't it?
It has turned out really well and I've got enough bits and pieces of yarn to make one if not two cushion covers to go with it although I might not be able to do that before Tuesday. I think the overall colour of the throw is most accurately reflected in the front fringe of the last photo.
It measures 72" x 40" including the fringe and took 800 gm of different Colinette yarns.
New Stash Acquisition
Although this came a little while ago now I can't not show you the lovely yarn my Secret Springtime Santa sent me.
It's PoshYarns Eva, a 45% Cashmere/55% Silk chunky weight mix that I think I shall use to make a Cherry Garcia cabled neck tube. I'm so looking forward to knitting this - thank you jam_mam
Another one from PoshYarn
This is Eva again but a dk yarn colour - "electric". This will be a shawl.
It's so difficult to resist buying something from PoshYarn at the regular "one-off" Sunday evening sale. All the yarn is dyed just for that evening's sale and can't be bought before and when it's gone, it's gone so it's first come, first served. You get the feeling that if you don't buy it then there will never be another chance. Actually, it's quite stressful but I think you've got it right Dee.
And the last one - Handmaiden Seasilk colour Sangria and another shawl.....
Doesn't this one just shout "Summer"!
