Shades of Violet

Here is the progress on my Hopsox - isn't the pattern and yarn just fabulous? I am in love.

The pattern has been written by Joy for P/hop. I am testing it for her at the moment in some deeeeeeeelicious Yarn Yard Toddy - colour Dairy Milk.

As well as knitting there has been some spinning too! Here is 100g of BFL in Shades of Violet from Wildcraft Fibre.

I'm hoping to be able to wind it onto my new (home made by Tony) Niddy Noddy soon.

Apparently it needs varnish and sanding before I can use it! Huh!
