And, yes, I am an Aries. Aries the Knitter.
Over the weekend I did some gift knitting. I cast on for another felted bag. The yarn I am using is Te Awa Natural Wools that I bought off ebay.
I obviously didn’t read all the details & was quite surprised to find 2 large 200g hanks in the parcel. I bought it without a project in mind but after seeing the actual colours (much deeper, tealy greens than the pic) and how much yarn I had, I realised it would be perfect for a gift I want to make. I did a swatch to make sure it would felt (it does, beautifully). The bag is fairly basic but I have added a couple of rows of some “squiggly” yarn (that I hope wont get felted in) and a few rows of beads to make it more interesting.
Also from ebay:
10 hanks of Rowan rowanspun 4 ply (1480 metres/ 1620 yards in total). Any suggestions?
