Emily's the knitter, Clare's the spinner, and we both like cocktails!

Blackberry Jewels

Clare (she's ShortyC on Rav) has spun me some lovely yarn, which was part of her 4th challenge with Diane Mulholland and her Spintelligence club (see the last post). The challenge was to take 100g of 20% bamboo/80% merino and slightly overspin 2 singles, then slightly overply the yarn, to make a good wearing sock yarn. We counted rounds on the niddy-noddy, and made it 260m, not bad!

I made Elm Leaves for my godmother, and extrapolated a neckwarmer for Mum. (£.25mm for the former, doesn't show the lace that well, and 4mm for the latter).
