My friends in Canberra took me to a yarn store on Friday. I think it was called Stitch ‘N Time. It was stocked with quite a good range – including lots of Italian wool.
I bought 500 grams of Vero, an Italian wool.
I want to see if I can come up with a pattern that shows the colours as a gradual change, rather than stripes across the body. That probably means knitting narrow strips.
I also picked up some Corridale Clip on special, and navy St Ives yarn for socks for the beau.
And then I discovered this when I got home:
My Neopolitan Pomatomus Icecream socks bled when they were washed. I’m not overly fussed about it, but I thought I should mention it. The dark chocolate bits have lightened to milk chocolate.
