This topic should collect all the postings made on the individual product pages about items made with those yarns...

IF you post them from individual yarn pages your post will be linked to that yarn and show up on that page too, so please try and either match your post to the yarn or just add it here directly...

For me...

I need something for my shoulders for my son's wedding and designed the perfect little wrap to do the job!

Details are on my project page here:

I used 6/20nm linen/silk DK and lots of beads on the edging. You can find this yarn here:

Made with the same yummy yak/merino as the one in the post below! Same gorgeous results!

I made 2, one for my son and one for his wife to be (I did reenforce the belt loop holes so they no longer gape!) for wedding prezzies. (They get married next week!)

This is made with the 4/14nm yak/merino DK. Perfect yarn for this pattern! I am really happy with the results!

This one is modified heavily to get a more manly look.

Festifall of Flowers (without the flowers!)

Пт, 13 июня 2014 6:25:08

I started this design c 2 years ago. I kept meaning to add the flowers - but thought against it as being "too busy" . I'm glad I decided against it.

Lovely to wear - the yarn used was 100% extra fine merino 15/44NM dk wt tartan green. I love the sleeves and am planning to make the same but a longer in length version.

If you have a Ravelry account, the following link will take you to the project page.

Yours truly modelling the design.

Everyone's a Ref!!! © (World Cup Mascot)

Пт, 13 июня 2014 6:16:20

FIFA's World Cup tournament commenced yesterday and this is my Mascot - which I'm going to gift to a fellow Arsenal FC (my team) supporter.

It's supposed to represent me (though from Caribbean descent) I've never worn dreadlocks!

The yarn was - my default yarn! - Extra Fine Merino. The colours are my favourite team colours when we won the double (League & FA Cup) over the period 1970./71.

You can just about see the "Red Card" in the right hand and it looks like I'm pointing at someone, with the other hand. That deadly combination only means one thing - "Game over for that person!"

I've been busy again with some swatches.

I start from the top and work my way down.

The purple and cream swatches are the Cashmere/Merino 4/20NM fine fingering (10/90) from CM2.

My thoughts and notes can be found here:

The middle 2 are the 3/14nm Yak/Merino fingering.(Lavanda and Fango) If there is any left, it might fall out of someone's cart... you never know, can be found on CM2 here:

My swatch page is here:

And last but not least is my lacy 2/18nm cotton slub in the very vibrant Fuxia! This one is the feature ColourMart yarn for March 2014 and has been newly stocked on CM.com here:

My swatch page is here:

The other 1/2 of the yarn feature for March is the the Aran weight cousin. I swatched this one last year about this time but I wanted to mention it because of the feature. It can be found here on the CM.com site:

And my swatch page is here:

These are wonderful yarns and I am please with them all!

eta: My apologies for duplicating my cash/merino swatch efforts. I totally forgot that I had already shared that one. (There's that menopausal brain fart again!?? Sorry!)

Have just finished a mans jumper, knitted on a Passap Pinky, with the above yarn. I knitted it Italian Knit or Longstitch, the fabric is lovely and soft, bloomed up slightly when washed. So happy with this yarn, have bought another cone in dark navy.

4/20nm Cashmere/merino

Сб, 15 марта 2014 17:32:03

Been swatching again!

I quite like this one and best of all is that the purple doesn't bleed. I plan to knit these 2 together! (But I hear that the dark blue and the red does bleed so be careful if you plan colourwork and swatch them up together first!)

4/20nm Cashmerino from CM2 details are here:

You can find the yarn on CM2 here:
