During that year I have knitted and crocheted upwards of 17354.4 yards of yarn. Or in other words almost 10 miles. Yikes!
I now have around 12 miles of yarn in my stash and it's still shrinking. I am intending to stop Cold Sheeping now though and instead continue trying to use up my stash if I can but also allowing myself to buy yarn for a specific project that I'm about to start. Some people refer to this as "Moderate Merino" lol :)
I've really enjoyed this past year of having to challenge myself but also being able to use up some of those yarns that I've hoarded for a while.
So this isn't a completely photo free post I thought I'd share some photos of my Framlingham sweater that I made over 2 years ago and yet never got round to taking photos of. It's a nicely written pattern with a pretty mock cable detail. I mostly wear it around this time of year with a long sleeve top as it gives that bit of extra warmth without being too hot.
^ I don't normally look like that, I was pulling silly faces at Mr Soaring Sheep and ironically I prefer this expression to my attempts at smiling and posing
I used Wendy Merino DK in the Mulberry colourway. It's really pretty with dark blue and almost pinky purple fibres woven in to the main purple colourway. It's washed and worn well too given it's been two years since I knitted it. I'd definitely recommend it.
I followed the pattern pretty much as written apart from adding some extra length. I'm enjoying being able to wear it again now the weather is cooler.
Thank you for the lovely comments about my Grace cardigan, I'm so pleased with it and really touched at some of the comments that were made :)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'm going to hopefully enjoy some autumn sunshine and also work on my shawl as I've got to the beaded section now :)
