The beginnings of a custom order woolen throw - a combination of three natural colours. I shall name this wool the "Crazy Critter".
This was my first time using this particular combination of colours. As I wasn't sure what the effect would be, I knitted up a small test piece and sent it off to my client for approval. It's not unlike an animal print. Some of you have mentioned chocolate. Either way it's all good. Approved!
I like to take photos of my woollies as I knit them: it may be a particular collection of stitches that appeals to me or, as you know by now, the crimp of the wool that I love to capture.
When the woollies make it to the table it means that they are half way to the finishing line. The hardest part is ahead of them and for me, it's the most angst ridden. Sometimes things go wrong and my mistakes become very expensive.
Fortunately, this Crazy Critter behaved beautifully. And here she is in all her glory:-
Ta daa! This one is off to Paris. Wow - that's quite a journey. Fedex for you honey. Good luck and I hope you are received well.
