From the design desk this week: some free patterns for Hemp and Wool Yarn customers:
SIOz’s Hemp and Wool. The Duelling Beanie is shown in colourway Think Global and the Hemp and Wool Hand Cosies are shown in a semisolid orange, one of my fave colours! and I hope you like it too. The patterns are free with the purchase of SIOz Hemp and Wool Yarn.
There is also an 8ply merino version of the hat:
(the 8ply photo is care of kaviare) There are some kick ass hanks of 8ply in Sherwood Forest (DARK version) as well as some new colourways of hemp and wool, all ready for sale this week.
Also on board: new Nepalese laceweight colourways — I’ve been test knitting with this — at first, it looked like it was a felted-type yarn. But it’s not — it has a tremendous halo and feels like mohair. I’ve been knitting a shawl with it and it’s got a lot of sproing. There are two families of this yarn available — bright and bold and some more subtle, soft colourways.
Come by at Port Adelaide Fisherman’s Wharf Market on Sunday, or see you at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show.
Knit something warm for someone you care about.
