Pretty Squooshyness

And it's free! Check out what my yarny pal Siobhan donated to the cause of Piggy's yarn diet-respecting stash enhancement:



Pretty, no? It's homespun Targhee and Piggy loves it. I'm thinking hat...what do you think?

  1. Interesting yarn, but I would be at a loss as to what to do with it. I have trouble envisioning results with yarn that has different weights mixed together. It will be interesting to see your results.

  2. Hat could work...Blend it with something else to really show off the hand spinning. Lovely yarn.

  3. I'm freez'n over here in Victoria today so i thought 'oh fat fingerless gloves' right away. Cast on stitchs to as long as you want them, knit garter stitch - both at the same time - until it's wide enough to fit around your hand. Sew up. Wahlahh. In fact i think i have some handspun that i'll make myself some with lol. It's beautiful wool..love those colours

  4. U know harlot has a book "knitting rules" which is fabulous for sock patterns, and just about any pattern you want to make...it is a piece of fine work and great for reference...that yarn is stunningly beautiful...maybe you can just string the balls and wear it as a necklace...something like those huge vogue ish sweaters. lol

  5. It's gorgeous! I'd make a tea cozy with it. Or mittens. I just ordered some of her yarn (that silver-blue mermaid colorway), and can't wait for it to get here. No idea what to do with it, but I had to have it anyway. Diet? What diet?
