Tangled Throw

I finally have a finished item. Not been too good with those at the moment. Really good with cast ons though. I am trying to control the cast on urge but there are times when it is totally untamable.

I designed and knitted this throw for Tangled Yarns. They have this fantastic chair in the window, a Louis 1b by Sixinch courtesy of their wonderful neighbours OBJX. It is an amazingly comfortable chair and Kelly often mentions going and sitting in the window to knit and just enjoy its comfort. So here it is. Big chunky wool courtesy of Brown Sheep Burly Spun with lovely big chunky twists.

PS I'll try and get some photos on 'the' chair.

Keep smiling :-)

Shopping Day

Yesterday I had a little blow out at Tangled Yarns but it was worth every cent. Some wonderful Lace Weight from the lovely Alyssa at The Yarn Cafe, two fine ergonomic crochet hooks by those clever people at Clover and finally a devine shawl pin. Have to check to see who the designer is but it is beautiful. It is made from aluminium which makes it beautiful and light and if you have long hair it would also make a great hair ornament. Enjoy my eye candy.

Keep smiling :-)
