It's been a while since I did one of these posts and I've completely forgotten where I was up to the numbering...
I freely admit that my fibres are at the more luxury end of the purchasing scale, and justifiably so, I put a lot of time in to them, and feel I deserve to pay myself fairly for that time. When I was working I would have had a hard tme justifying buysing enough hand dyed fibre to make myself an entire jumper. However, this rather yummy pattern gets round that dilemma.
Combine some handspun with a commercial yarn and you can make a beautiful sweater- Whiteleaf
This has just been published in the Winter edition of Knitty, and she spun the yoke yarn on a Hiltop Cloud spindle!
In fact, I'm sat here having a little smug proud moment as Mirella, the clever designer, only learned to spin in June using one of my Learn to Spin Kits.
She's got lots of other very yummy patterns, lots of them will work wonderfully with handspun.I know Katharine has already knitted her very own version of the Anima Hat using some Bond fleece and some oddments of other colours.
