Kelim

Some knitting that was done a couple of weeks ago

Kelim

They actually 'toe-up easy as comes' - kneehigh's, the 'i adjusted the pattern as i knitted'- kind . But the yarn- well The yarn is so so special. It is Nurturing Fibres Sock Club Yarn, Autumn 2010. The theme was Kelim. Carle made a 40m warp and used several different dyeing techniques to get the effect she desired. I could not believe it when I knitted it up, just pure magic.It knitted up into a patterned soft fabric, and to see the patterns unfold is seriously addictive! So Carle did it again! Her yarn just took my breath away.
Oh and did i mention that I love the socks? They fit perfectly are soft and warm. And doesn't the pattern just look amazing?
