|Cotton stash-busting face cloths|
I have been using two strands, one of candy coloured cotton and the other a soft, undyed, fluffy cotton. The cream cotton added so much softness and texture, as well as toning down the candy colours somewhat.
Some of these are to be gifted, some already have and some may just stay with me I think
Oh garter stitch, how I love thee! What is it with this simple wiggly little stitch? I can't get enough of it. It is so soft and has such a nice smushy feeling...plus its so darn fast.
Some 80% merino wool and 20% possum yarn have found there way into my stash lately (prior to the stash-busting commmenced of course). It is so soft and such a pleasure to knit with. Love it. It is 8ply 'Possum Wool' from Shepard. Just perfect for a scarf........or three. Hehe one for Ma Fox (on the needles now), on for Sister Fox and one for me. Two rows of cream and then a pop of colour for two rows, all garter stitch and knitted on no.9 needles.
