We had some of the gorgeous falling leaves yarn left over, so mum went to work and produced this!!!
I think this is absolutely stunning, and mum's own pattern too!!!! It is made with a rolled trim, so can be rolled alot for small heads and unrolled as they grow, plus various sizes! Here's an example of it as a set (sorry Katie, borrowed Lal's longies!)
There will be a selection of these on the shop soon! Look out for some sets during BBM/WAHM Collab month!

You will need to scroll down to the older posts, for more details!!! But.....
the said yarn will be dry by this evening as it is so incredibly windy out today (crikey better go check it's still on the line!!).... Once dried, skeined and photo's taken, I will ask a random question at the end based on something I've said, or done or that you can see, and if you leave your reply to the final post, I'll draw a name from a hat! That lucky person gets to name the colourway before it goes up for sale! Ok, so this is just a bit of fun, we all need something in life!! ;-) ;-) ;-)
I'm so excited about our new Folksy store - TNG Yarns.....
So.. to ease my excitement, I'm going to have fun making a blog of dyeing wool updates! I shall dye up 2 skeins of wool, and From the moment the wool goes into soak, to the moment I skein it up, I shall add photos and information about the process it takes.
At the end, I shall ask a random question, leave your answer, and the first drawn from a hat, gets to name the colourway!!! ) Hows that for excitement lol ;-) I will draw the name on Saturday evening!
I will be making the first entry this evening, and it may take 2-3 days in all, depending on drying conditions!
Are these the most funky and unusual pair of longies you've ever seen?????
They are going to look so fab on H!
RE my txt hun, we have had to place 2 blue stripes, into the bottom of the leg, as there was no way the 2 balls of main body colour would stretch..... so for future reference, you need at least 250g body colour and 50g trim, or 300g total colour!! I couldn't dye more as this colourway is so unique, I could never replicate it.
I'm afraid the pic does not do them justice here as I'v just taken it now... so will take another one tomorrow when they are finished....
Wow, if I've ever seen choppy waves, this is them!!! An evening storm or such like. I think they look fab, and are knitting up with purple stripes almost! I'm hoping the shorter rows on the legs will brings smaller stripes, making them look gorgeous!
I was asked to do a denim type wool, (forgive me but I cannot remember by whom, or for what!) with various types of blue in. I think I've achieved that! 2 different types here, so one could be a for a soaker/small shorties, or I could combine as scrappy, very boyish, longies!!!!
A perfect pair of newborn longies knitted on the circulars!!! These are just stunning and you can see for yourselves how beautifully they are knitting up. Mum is like a chesire cat and very pleased with herself.
These will be in the shop soon, hopefully to get a new loving home.
