The other day tweeted about these gorgeous mugs from Debbie Bliss. I happen to be a mug addict and have to restrict myself to a one-in, one-out policy when it comes to mugs. Fortunately, there are a few other items featuring the different stitches that I can easily sneak into the kitchen!
I love the colours that they come in, as well as the fact that they’re a little bit different. I can’t wait to see what else they do next. I also love the Harris Tweed collection of knitting accessories. I like that the needle roll has space for circular needles and other bits and bobs that I always seem to be searching for! Great idea – will be adding that to my ‘must buy’ list!
But this one’s different. Even though I’m a knitter, I don’t really know or understand much about wool. This doesn’t really worry me. I go by feel. I like soft wools that remind me of autumnal days & winter nights.
That’s why my latest headband is slightly more expensive than previous ones (I say expensive, it’s only £6.50!). My OH picked this ball of wool because of the colour. I gave the ball of wool a squidge & knew I had to knit with it. I loved knitting with it. It was so easy. I started it on Saturday & finished it yesterday. It’s been listed on my Folksy page today. So thank you Debbie Bliss for your lovely Rialto Aran wool. Both I & Brownie thank you. x
Do you have a favourite wool to knit with? Or maybe a favourite fabric to sew with?
