NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW
Of course this ball of handspun (hereonin known as the weird ball) was never meant to be knitted. No.... It was only a curio...A could I? A no/yeah/dunno...maybe....If you've read previous postings you'd have heard my confessions of stalking Christmas Decoration Sale tables wondering if I could attempt a Merino / Deco blend. I shouldn't have gone there...It was un-natural...against God's laws...an abomination!!
Don't try to stop me...it's too late. (hehe) but check it out!
When I spun it I really thinned out the merino and draped the decorations on top. I rolled it into a sausage and spun out of the top...(stop laughing) When I plied it back through I used red machine thread and every 10cm or so I stalled the wool for a few seconds giving a small solid red bauble.
There is serious gold and silver hangy-outie bits and pieces (bling, bling!)and the whole thing just about sent me STRANGE!!
That's enough about the weird ball...(now the weird curtain tie-back claimed by Bridget)..thanks for checking out struthless bloggings...bye!!
