Deep Ocean Twist

So, I cast on my latest acquisition, using a free pattern from garnstudio.com called Rose Twist. It is knitted with one strand each of Drops Alpaca and Kid-Silk on 5mm needles.I replaced Drops Alpaca (100% Alpaca) with Nord which is a 45% Alpaca, 30% Polyamide, 25% Wool mix (same yarn group), and you’ll notice that I changed the Kid-Silk colour from blue-grey to petrol as the former totally ‘diluted’ the beautiful blue-green of Nord (colour is deep ocean – mix).  191 more words

This is it.

Spot the handstitching, echoing the  original crewel work. Spot the pink and  high lustre green/gold. I am still not sure that this is right yet, some days it reads as a landscape, others it is a mish mash, others it is enigmatic and intriguing.  151 more words

New Beginnings

Woolly Delights is the brainchild of Suhasini and Surabhi Sinha.
