I had a birthday this week and my present from mum and dad arrived a few days after the actual day. But boy was it worth the wait!
4 balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed.
(This photo doesn’t do the colour justice – it’s much darker and closer to a blackcurrant colour)
And a project bag that Mum made.
I had raved in the summer about some sock project bags I’d seen on Etsy and this is pretty close I think. Perfect for socks and other small projects. I may add a little loop of elastic on the inside to hold DPNs.
I’m not quite sure what to make with the tweed, but perhaps a scarf and hat combination, or a Stephanie Japel shrug.
Thanks Mum and Dad. You guys are brilliant!
