With an end diameter of 1.8m, the Ball contains thousands of metres of K1S1 Extreme Knitting Yarn made from felted woollen tops.
I met Anne Weil of Flax & Twine at Vogue Knitting Live January 2016. We had an instant connection. This cute little video has been made by Anne as a thank you to her followers. Using K1S1 Extreme Knitting Yarn, Anne crocheted the heart using her hands. You can read Anne's blog post about how she made the heart here.
Soft Light - Ruth Rosham and Tango Noir. Knitwear designed and made by me, commissioned by melbourne stylist stuart walford
From Ruth Roshan & Tango Noir's album "Stories of Love & Regret" Written and sung by Ruth Roshan. Amir Farid (piano), Aaron Barnden (violin), Caerwen Martin (cello). Knitwear commissioned by stylist Stuart Walford. Made from unspun wool in charcoal grey especially for this video. I made the pattern up as I went a long and, as usual, didn't keep a record of it. Really need to get better at recording my activities. I always assume I'll remember it but no - of course I don't.
