A fellow craft friend gave me a bag of cotton/acylic mix yarn recently, asking if I could use it. Never one to refuse a little yarn in pretty colours, I brought it home to play. I really wanted to try another summer hat pattern but it just wasn't working and while this yarn is mercerised it is just a bunch of individual threads together making it splitty. The tight tension required of the hat was not working, too many threads to get caught on the hook.
|Not good colour but pretty yarn - oh yeah after I got underway!|
|The one on the left was the first attempt, the one on the right has me modifications|
|This is almost done - though there was some reversing after this picture|
As I haven't used all of the yarn from the bag, there are other colours in there which may or may not follow suit?
Hope you're enjoying a little Sunday sunshine in your space.
