It seems ages since I've posted anything. Family has been keeping me a little busy of late, but I do have a little something to show everyone. I love working with this lovely soft baby camel hair. This scarf pattern is very easy to do, nice when you just want something to do in front of the TV at night. It is almost long enough [had a fitting on the weekend..................LOL.........yes, we have scarf fittings at our house!!]. I'm knitting this supposedly 8ply on 6.5mm needles, just to have a slightly looser tension, keeping the feel a little softer. There will be a tassel at each end. This pattern was in an Australian Knitting magazine, and is a simple garter stitch, increase one, decrease, and so on, which makes a 'chevron' effect.
I have become interested in the many and varied fibres on the market today, and can't believe how many exciting products we have at our finger tips. I saw this site some time ago, but had forgotten about it: http://ecoyarns.com.au/index.php I can see some time wasted [??], and money going out of my account!!! After knitting with bamboo fibre a few years ago, and more recently using bamboo quilt wadding, I'm quite keen to try some of the newer products available. I hope you find something interesting on this site.
