Weird yarn. looks cool though

As soon as the Australian Cricket team won the second test against england I wound my hanks and started knitting a test swatch. I have come to the conclusion that this is a weird yarn. the oddest (is that a word?) i have ever knit with. I found this yarn to be rather stiff and difficult to knit with but after a while i got used to it. I is gorgeous but a bit different but i think well worth the effort for the effect it gives to the knitted product.

This is the waistband and the begginings of the bottom ruffle which is picked up and knitted. there is going to be around 300 sts after i have finished the ruffle so I'm going to want to change to a circular. I am going to buy myself a PINK denise set! I saw them in the knitters review newsletter. Mum likes the idea that they come in thier own container. What she actually means is that she wont have to pick up stray knitting needles all around the house ;)

one final thing. I have listed some stitch markers on ebay. They are cookies with a swarovski crystal on each. they are very cute and are made by me! Available in both PINK and YELLOW Find them here
