Good morning from a very wet and miserable Hastings day.
Last December I joined the market down in Otane. Lately it has just taken off for me. I am getting a reputation for fine knitting. And that is because I use a 2 ply knitting machine. That means I can knit very fine garments such as this one I knitted up yesterday.
I then crochet the band to add my own signature to it. As you can see the wool is very fine and the baby jacket is so light. I think that 2 ply is also called fingerling in the US.
These sell for $20 each. I have started to go through my mother’s wool and using that. All throughout my childhood my mother would knit with her knitting machine. She also worked for a shop. Every Thursday night we would eat takeaways as she had to sew everything up, ready for Friday.
I come from a very crafty family.
My entry for Jennifer’s challenge this week which is crafts.
Thanks for visiting.
