My Three Irish Girls Stash of Elenya 50%Alpaca/50%Merino. When I saw the Multi-colourway was called Fiona I just had to have it
I also ordered a matching cerise and pumpkin orange.
My plan was to use it for a felted project… but it’s absolutely perfect for the Feather & Fan scarf I’m trying out from the Beautiful Knits for Heads, Hands & Toes book… my December book review.
So now I’ve 3 projects on the go… Haggis the highland cow, Finn’s Christmas stocking & the Feather & Fan scarf. The scarf is knitted… which is something I’ve not done in years!
I’ve always been an extremely slow knitter so it will be interesting to see if I’m any faster these days. I’ll post my review at the end of the month with photos of how far I’ve got… as somehow I don’t think it will be finished in 3 wks
Eek! Slightly more of a colour run when it felted than I expected. The red isn’t so Christmassy and the cream… well it’s now more of a definite pink… even the snowman is the same shade (i’m not even going to bother photographing that). On the plus side the fringing felted extremely well and if this was done in a single colour it could work. But this wasn’t exactly the overall look I was going for so I think this time it’ll have to be a non felted pattern.
