Last Sunday I took part in Kreativflohmarkt / Creative Flea Market in our local art centre & creative space Unperfekthaus. It was organised by Charly from Natron & Soda who also comes to our knitting group. It was so much fun!
I had stitch markers, self dyed wool and shirts from Marvellous for sale. I didn't sell much, but did manage to end up on the plus side!
So, I'm feeling better so I can finelly get back to blogging! This is what I have to show you first - the Damson shawl.
First the stats:
Pattern: Damson by Ysolda Teague
Needles: 4mm circular
Yarn: 1 skein of Zitron undyed sock yarn, self-dyed with Kool aid - and ca. 20 grams of Zitron bamboo sock yarn, also self dyed. More about this later..!
Modifications: I did the lace bit in garter stitch instead of stockinette. It looks good!
I had wanted to try Kool Aid dyeing for a while, and when I got several balls of unnamed white wool when a friend of mine was destashing, and Sinead was leaving for the US in a few weeks for holidays. What better opportunity to try! I asked her to bring some sachets, and I got them this week in the Borders Knit and natter evening. So, Saturday night I got to it. I first studied the instructions, and put the wool for a bath (pic 1).
