…spending hours of your life in double-pointed needle hell to create beautiful cashmere Rowan Finest gloves, only to get to the end of them and realise that you have made TWO LEFT HANDS.
So, you count to ten for three days then bite the bullet and undo the one, and start it again. You make a right hand. Everything is perfect. Then you wear them out and lose them within the first week.
I had a shopping spree yesterday and have stocked up on some light bright yarns ready to knock up some colourful cowls and wonderful wrist-warmers to see you through the Spring. I will be posting photographs of the finished goods once I have enough of a range. Contact me for specific commissions.
For just five English pounds you can buy the most divine lambswool comb to protect your lovingly crafted knits from an attack of the bobbles.
This was a pleasure to make for someone I love in Australia. It will be gifted to them in September when I next see them.
This took about 30 attempts to get right but I’m really happy with the outcome. The colour is lovely but I needed to block it properly before sewing together I think. I may have to live with an eternally rolling up edge I think.
Oh well, you live you and learn. I always let my lack of patience get the better of me.
