Last week some of this arrived
It’s grey shetland and white Mulberry silk roving. I spent Friday afternoon dyeing up some of this, some regular white shetland and some oatmeal BFL. Here’s a small sample of the results.
I was particularly pleased with the purple and the red/burgundy braids, and wasn’t surprised when they sold not long after listing.
I went to take a photo of my Opulent Raglan, but that really isn’t looking that much different to last weekend. I soaked and whacked my skein of handspun from yesterday’s guild meeting and it’s all dry now and ready to be wound in to a centre pull ball so I can resume knitting.
However, these are new:
They’re Express Lane by Diane from issue one of The Inside Loop. You can see on the left hand side I’ve made a bit of a mess of the short-row toes, but I’m pretty happy with them so far and they’re living up to their name. I did 3 or 4 pattern repeats last night while I was watching a bit of telly on iplayer. I’ve never done toe-up before and I think I like it.
