I got supplies from Freeman's on Biashara Street, and got 4 balls of wool. The first was quite pricey, 700 bob, and I still haven't figured out what I'm going make with that. It feels so soft though.....and it's super heavy.
The other 3, I put them all together to make one sort of yarn, and that way combined 3 different colours for a pretty cool result. It's a mix of a dark purple sorta aubergine colour, an orangey hubbard squash and fuschia. It also makes the end result pretty heavy, perfect for my favorite time of year. Yep...I LOVE the cold weather.
I'm using 10mm knitting needles and using the Knit 1 Purl 1 knitting pattern. Extra heaviness and stretching ability. This is how it looked when I started on Friday.
Now I've taken to carrying this little project of mine with me everywhere I go, but haven't gotten much knitting done...but I'm steadily moving along. This is the little bugger at my office desk.
I shall probably decide what it is after another foot or so but I see it most probably being a snood.
I'm also going to buy the circular knitting needles after this....that way I can make bigger items.
Have a good one!
