Fibre Friday :: Super Bulky!

Super bulky is here!

A wholesale order for Wild and Woolly in Devonport, heading off on it's merry way tomorrow morning.


And some up in the shop for you, in hydrangea (purple and blue) and forest (earthy green).

I've been wearing a simple scarf for most of winter, in a cheery orange colour

:: a simple scarf ::

With 10 / 12 / 15 mm needles cast on 3 or 4 stitches. Knit until yarn runs out, and cast off. Use tails to join the two ends of the scarf together. Wash in lukewarm water and stretch to desired length to dry. Wrap several times around your neck to create a layered look.

:: spun sliver yarn details ::

100% NZ Wool (Romney/Perendale)
super bulky/ 4 wpi
10-15 mm needles
100 g/ 30m

Other ideas for projects include hats, bags, slippers, cushions, or you could make a blanket like Frances did!


In other exciting news, I've dropped a day at work, so will be spending Friday's (my first was today) pottering around the studio dyeing and winding up skeins of yarn. It feels like a step in the right direction!
