Cable wristwarmer kit from Toft Alpacas.
Toft Alpaca DK for the wristwarmers.
Natural Dye Studio Angel sock yarn.
Kraftykoala sock yarn.
Texere Aran 10 balls.
Square circular needle.
So I didn’t go too mad! Two sock yarns although the NDS one has cashmere so won’t be used for socks. The other one just looked like a mad colour!
It wasn’t a big festival but big enough to keep Karen and myself occupied for 4 hours. There was a fashion show of some updated vintage patterns, some of which were really lovely. I was too busy looking to take any pictures!
The square needles were intriguing, so although they were rather expensive, I thought I’d give them a try. I bought a 4mm so that they would get plenty of use. The cable is the most flexible I have come across, its almost like soft rubber. And they are supposed to be better for your hands if you have any carpal tunnel or arthritis problems.
I need to get my bamboo top finished so I can get on with some new projects!
