Stringy things!

Remember a little while ago I started hand spinning some yarn for class? Well this is the final result! My inspiration was 'dry stane dykes' and I used a variety of materials to capture the essence of these beautiful structures in the form of crafted, hand-spun and machine spun yarns.

At the end I had loads of test yarns left over which I decided to knit into a little patchwork rock cosy to display how the yarns might look when knitted up - it was so fun!

I'm pretty happy with the result and am dreaming of making these yarns into some beautiful jewelry like this by Heather Goldberg, oh so pretty!

  1. These are lovely. My favourites are the two chunkier ones in the middle. x
