I had a need for retail therapy, so I bought yarn.
I was not tempted by chocolate nor hot cross buns over Easter, but I bought yarn.
I needed to get mother's day present, so I bought yarn.
I was on Ravelry and discovered this thing called destashing, and I bought yarn.
The Australian dollar has been strong, so I bought yarn.
I discovered Madeline Tosh yarns, so I bought yarn.
However, I am happy to say that production rate was up and I have results to show for them.
From stash, I finally made/finished these:
|Twisted Rib Cowl, hand knitted - a belated birthday present.|
Used up 2.4 balls of yarn, Morris and Sons Quartet 8ply.
|The Irish Scarf, handwoven - a birthday present received on time.|
Used up 1.5 balls of each colour, Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed.
|The Noro Stripey scarf, handwoven - an early birthday present.|
Used up 2 balls of Noro Silk Garden Lite and
some odds and ends of 2/28 cashmere yarn.
|Rooftop Cowl, hand knitted - onto my 6th one! |
To be gifted and I think that this one will stay in Melbourne.
This will finally use up all the alpaca.
From new purchases, I made these:
|Another Twisted Rib Cowl, hand knitted.|
Madeline Tosh pashmina - an one skein project.
Gorgeous feel and drape. For myself.
|The part circular shawl, machine knitting. Mother's day present.|
3 Skeins of Madeline Tosh Light from detash on Ravelry.
|A crochet edge to the shawl. |
I think that this took longer to do than all of the machine knitting!
|I love the detail when all the eyelets converging at the top.|
