I love these little creatures with skinny legs and knotty knees. Now I'm on a mission to find more patterns for more little knobbly kneed creatures to knit or crochet.
Rachel wouldn't let me Etsy this one, so he's staying with us. There will be more, however, and they will soon be starring in an Etsy shop near you.
Wild and wacky corespun.
Merino, sari silk, mulberry silk.
Don't go looking in your Granny's knitting patterns for ideas for this one. It's just not that kind of yarn.
Approx 36 yards.
I'm having lots of fun with this corespun thing.
Wendy (spinweaver) in USA knitted and painted this washcloth. Then she unravelled it and sent it to me in the UK to knit up again. She left the cast on stitches and told me about the corners to keep me on track, but the rest was a mystery! This was DIFFICULT! It's by no means perfect but I'm happy with this. I have to be, I undid more than I knitted, I'm sure!
Actually, it was fun and I think we should do it as an official Swap-Bot swap.
My latest batt. Merino, silk and angora.
I won a Lazy Kate! The new competition tensioned one. From www.handspinner.co.uk
Thanks Shiela. You now have another loyal customer in me.
i haven't tried it out yet as I have to spin the other half of this batt.
Here is my blended wool ready to spin. I only lightly carded it (once through the carder alternating between red blend and green). The unfinished mitten took 44g of spun wool. I'll still need to do more...
