Where's the food-colouring ?!!!
BUT I hadn't realised it wouldn't work with cotton... And most hanks were cotton.
So here's my lame results for this morning. And to think all the lovely lime dye went down the drain in the rinse...! But I'll keep looking. Or buy more (food-colouring, not yarn !!). And I'll probably re-dye these babies. Needs more lime green in there...
Just to show I HAVE been knitting, a progress pic on the lime cardi. Will soon be done with the second front.
And finally, a crochet swatch with the magnifiscent Licorne from Phildar (I'm usually not crazy about their yarn, but this one is gorgeous).
Following the article in the latest issue of Crochet me, I played with front and back loops; On far left is regular dc, far right is dc in front loop. Probably doesn't show that well but dc in ft lp is gorgeous, very drapey, so much more suited for a garment. I'm starting on a wee project with it right now...
Haven't had much success yet with my swap offer. Really, anyone ? Up to 1 kg of french yarn for just a skein or two in return ?! (can you tell I REALLY want to get rid of it...)
Good luck!! It still looks really great!
