As you may have noticed, I am a bit of a sucker for greens and golds. My hands seems to instinctively reach for those dyes when I am doodling.
Like this one.
Almost a solid, but not quite.
I do like a nice round ball of yarn. Click for bigness to see the myriad of greens.
Wound in layers but not in a criss cross fashion. Instead this is done in a spiral building up in a clockwise fashion, but with a couple of fingers betwixt ball and winding on each new layer so it doesn't get stretched.
A bit like a gob-stopper, I suppose.
If at first you don't succeed then try again.
At the seventh attempt...
Let's just hope pride doesn't come before a frogging.
This is Yarnissima Very Terhi, knitted in Clan, which is finer than the yarn specified and knitted on 3mm needles (vintage Aero, I think) which are fatter than the yarn would suggest is required, but they are the only ones I have in a circular which are pointy enough to cope with the no-cable-needle travelling stitches so they will have to do.
I'm going to weigh the ball as I go along. The pattern calls for 2 x 50g balls of sportweight/5 ply. I am wondering whether, if I make them one pattern repeat shorter, I can get two mitts from one skein of Clan.
What do you think, can it be done?
