Knit, Swirl

Here's my Depth of Field from Sandy McIvers book Knit,Swirl. It's made from alternating welts of purple Noro Kama and my World of Wool glitzy Aubergine handspun. I wasn't too sure about it as I was knitting it but I'm very happy with how its turned out.  It's very cosy perfect for a cold winters night.

Elijah

Elijah the elephant an Ysolda Teague pattern.  He's made from Old Maiden Aunt merino/ bamboo fluff that I spun on my Sonata and Navajo plied to give a DK weight yarn. I put a packet of dried aduki beans in his bottom so he sits right up.  It was a really enjoyable and quick knit.

A few things ...

Socks made from handyed handspun BFL. Pattern was free from ravelry (annoyingly have forgotten the name). Had an interesting heel contruction (toe up) that fits really well.
