So my disaster of a dishcloth i the only thing i have ever knitted, but the boot up my bum to learn came from wanting to be invloved in the TNN Yarn swap.
The aim of the game is to create a package based on a theme of your choice including hand dyed yarn, pattern, gift and paper work of some discription.
Here is the package i made : Theme "Chocolat"
Drying the yarn after dying it, shaded of white, milk and dark chocolate
All rolled up into balls:
The whole package: i included the book "chocolat" as a gift, pattern for coasters plus all the ingredients to make chilli hot chocolate and the recipe in a french inspired mug.
And the swap i recieved: Theme "Harry Potter" ( my all time fav books!)
All together: Yarn dyed in shades of bertie botts every flavour beans, a box of "every flavour beans" , the book "Tales of beedle the bard" and the pattern for some groovy longies and a portable courlron! ( wooly hat for Flynn)
Close up of the gorgeous yarn:
Cant wait for the next swap!!!!!! ( infact i am waiting for my pincushion swap, and have just signed up to a "Gruffalo" swap and a handcraft swap hahaha)
