For quite some time I’ve been inspired by the colour work that other people are able to produce and I’ve wanted to be able to create similar stunning pieces but I haven’t been able to get my tension right, it’s been lumpy and has as a result left me feeling really flat about the whole affair.
After meeting Rachel Coopey at Unravel earlier this year and falling in love with her hat pattern Birstwith I purchased some mini’s from ‘The Little Grey Sheep’ and decided to give it a go again! Making an adjustment to the way that I hold my yarn in my left hand has made a world of difference… Arne and Carlos have a number of tutorials on their website and I combined their technique with my own and came up with an effective way of knitting with two colours rat really seems to have worked.
After having Eve, everything has taken a bit of a back seat, my knitting included. This has given me the much needed confidence kick that I needed to get back on track. Just in time for spring!
I cant recommend this yarn enough, it’s perfect for colour work and it’s so beautiful to work with. They have a wonderful selection of colours and it’s the perfect combination of soft and lofty with the grippy quality that’s perfect for colourwork. Love it.
