This was totally planned; I haven’t already fallen off my own wagon. Indeed, I’m telling myself that this is part of a self-imposed 10-Steps programme. Oh, yarns we spin!
Aren’t the colours just gorgeous? They range from quirky grey, through sumptuous blue, to deep red and back again; dallying in playful purple and earthy brown along the way. Jon Dunn-Ballam of EasyKnits is a talented British dyer and designer, whose work I’ve been admiring since he was featured in Yarn Forward years ago. He’s also lovely to meet in person; which I had the pleasure of doing at his stand in the 2009 IKnit Weekender.
With each club instalment, he includes the pattern he has written for the yarn being issued. For this, he has written a shawl pattern “Myriad”: a reversible shawl that can be worn a myriad of ways, thanks to the inclusion of buttons on opposite corners.
What I didn’t expect at all, was that he included the buttons! What an added bonus? So I’ve got a whole kit.The reckoning… Stash Accumulation for January: Yardage in = 495yds Yardage out = not yet determined…
