Decisions, Decisions…

I’m currently working on my Hansel Hap by Gudrun Johnson for the Knit British Hap-along and although I’m still working on the centre square, my thoughts have been turning to the striped Old Shale pattern around the edge. Out of the many colours of the Wildboardclough I dyed, which four should I use to complete this part?

I decided to try some yarn wraps in the correct proportions, to help out.

I thought it would help. But I don’t think it has! There only thing I can be sure of, is I don’t really like the first one. Ho hum?

What do you think?

A Sneak Peek!

I’m planning on casting on a Hansel Hap by Shetland Trader to join in the Knit British Hap-a-long that starts tomorrow. I was originally going to use some Rowan Scottish Tweed that has been in my stash for a v.e.r.y. long time, but it is only in 3 colours and there is only enough for a Half Hansel.

What to do?

Well, doh! I could dye some yarn…

I have a new base, a toothsome North Ronaldsay 2ply, 550m for 100g, so I decided to have a play yesterday. Seems I went a little mad…

Oops! This yarn will be ideal for colourwork where you need grippy yarn. It is rustic and ideal for out wear like the Hansel Hap. I am so looking forward to winding up a cornucopia of mini skeins and launching them in a few weeks. Keep a look out!
