Knitting Pattern: Devon Cloche

Final Tour de Fleece yarn… Not a huge haul of yarn, but a pretty little skein and mini skein combo.

Top - hand dyed Shetland and grey Shetland 144m/48g 4ply (std 2ply technique)

Middle - 32m/2g lace

Bottom - 17m/1-2g lace

The mini skeins are plied Andean to capture how the hand dyed colour might work on its own. Both could be used as a lighter weight edging to a knit project with the main yarn.

So how should I proceed with the Kal part of my Ravelry group SAL/KAL* competition? Well in all honesty, I’m really not sure… I want to make something for Darrin (D). D has supported me through everything I have been through in the last few months and so it seems only right that I treat him. As I’ll be knitting the final project in the evenings… and probably in his presence, I thought I ought to ask what he might like. After ‘cooing’ over the fact that the yarn is for him (he has been eyeing it up on my spindle!), D mentioned he’d love a lighter weight hat as his other hats are quite ‘winter’ heavy. A hat it is then! Just gotta find a pattern, or decide on making one up! What’s your favourite light weight hat?

Finally I thought I’d mention that I will be taking fleece and new fluff product to Fibre East this coming weekend… so if you fancy your very own ‘Roving Bon-bon ball’, or a ‘just shorn’ fleece, check me out!

(via MAKE | Miniature Sweaters with Attached Sleeves)

Ravelry user Chiko shared this touching little knitted project:

This piece, entitled Attached, is about the closeness that twins share during childhood. The little sweater sleeves grow into one another to emphasize this connection, and the piece (which is purely conceptual, rather than functional jewellery) actually physically attaches the wearers.
