6 April 2008

With a few projects on the needles right now, I didn't have any finished for an update last week, but have 2 finished caps for my 2.5 year old niece (assuming they fit, seeing as her mum didn't measure her for me) from some of my handspun yarns. The model is a bit small for the caps though.
Natural bamboo handspun -

Bright pink merino (spun after finishing the first cap)

and ongoing project progress - moebius scarf in dyed handspun bamboo yarn

This one has 300 stitches per row on either side (or 600 for the full round).
I've also cut a batch of sterling silver jumprings to make a watch, but still experimenting with weaves before deciding which one suits the watch face I'm using.

I'm sorry - I don't use gold thread, so I don't know what you mean about getting it to shimmer more or less?
