Rainbow Wool!

Over the summer, this beautiful ball of wool caught my eye in a shop in Llandudno. Unfortunatley, I can't remember the name of it (and I kept the label so carefully!). I will just have to pop back and get some more to find out the name!! (tee hee).


I decided that I wanted to make a cowl with the wool - mainly as an excuse to buy it. It took me ages to then find a pattern; a lot seemed to call for chunkier wool. Thanks to some googling (after Pinterest and Crafsty) I found the pattern for a Spring Bean Cowl here. It was really simple to follow, and quite a fun looking design.


I managed to get a twist in somehow, and it's a bit tighter than in the pattern; partially due to less wool, and partially due to my tension. However, the twist makes it a bit different (and husband and best friend told me to leave it in!). I loved watching the wool change colour. As my ball ends up miles away from me, I didn't always see what colour was coming next, which was fun!


I have yet to decide what to do with it - I think I'm going to give it away. And I'll just have to nip back to the shop to get myself some wool...



(I also need to stop taking the finished pictures in the evenings, and make more use of natural light!)

A Little Bit of Crafting

Alongside the early nights and theatre trips I mentioned in my previous post, I have actually managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafting...
