Project Sprectrum April (in pictures)
This is the baby jumper I did in the Kool Aid dyed yarn. Gorgeous and soft. I love it. Almost makes me wish I had a baby to put it on! lol. ALMOST...Just have to free up some time to do a matching beanie and socks. Do have buttons for it (got some lovely light orange rubbery ones) but cant find where I put them (they were sitting with the jumper now have vanished).
Then there was the yarn that I dyed up for my mothers Mother's Day Socks. Which the pattern didnt go to plan. I started with the Lava Sock Pattern (which is why I dyed the yarn the colour I have).
The pattern wasnt playing fair at all. Wasn't putting any effort in that I was. It was lazy and only looked like stocking stitch..Which isnt a BAD thing but I was putting effort in for MORE and DAMMIT I wanted more for my mothers socks. So after doing a total of 9 rows pattern. I got sad with it and ripped it back to the rib and started another pattern. Which I liked (though wasnt to plan so made me a little sad) but I liked enough to finish the first sock last night while watching Superbikes!! I am now doing the rib of sock two!
This new sock has FOUR different syles of stitching in it (rib, eye of partridge, stocking sitch and whatever the main pattern for the socks is).
I also got some LOVELY Heirloom cotton from Nat (for my birthday) that I have started something with but havent finished yet (part of Project Spectrum April) once its finished I will show you all. No piccies of it.
I also have piccies of the 5 or so GREEN things I have on the go that I want to finish at least 3 of for this month. Will probably post them later this week for you all to enjoy.
