Another Year, another fabulous time at Stitches, but first, here's a sock made from the Tidepool colorway I spun up courtesy of my fine blog readers.
I love, love, love it. The striping looks very cool and natural.
I took one class at Stitches, Bohus Stickning. It was fantastick! I recomend it highly to anyone. And below is my project, a wristlet in the Blue Shimmer pattern with the real angora/wool yarn from Sweden.
I'm going to turn it into a cuff for a glove. Anything that beatiful deserves to be something that I would actually wear, so I bought some blue alpaca/wool yarn from Denmark at the market, pictured below that I'm going to use to do the glove part. Yeah me. I spent last night dreaming of how I would turn it into a glove.
So, onto what you're really interested in...the haul
