Starting and Finishing

Since my last post I have finished my caliometry headband:



An felted ipod nano sock for a friend:


Started a Twiggy tunic out of the deep purple freedom wool I bought:



And have recieved some fabulous new yarn!



Rowan Polar (discontinued) in a pinky-purplish colour 'Frizzle' which I was planning to use as a sub for Twinkle soft chunky, but alas, it doesn't work! *I give up* trying to find a good sub I think i will just splurge and buy the reccomended yarn! I mean, If wenlan Chia uses it for all her designs it must be alright?

I have to say, it's TOTALLY worth splurging. It's amazing yarn and I don't think I'd find anything that was nearly as soft or nearly as nice as it is. It'll totally be worth the splurge. I PROMISE!

I think you should splurge also. I've used the Polar and believe me, I wasn't impressed with the finished item - pilling everywhere!
