This was probably my most complicated pattern that I've attempted and selfishly it was all for me too .
The pattern did say it was a weekend project but it took 4 weeks to do. remembering I work full time and have a family ! So maybe if I had a whole week end to myself and no need to put down my crocheting I might of got it done in a weekend lol !
I was uploading some photos from last year when i saw my mermaids hair jumper and thought hey I haven't put this on my blog !
Mermaids hair was an expression i saw used on a facebook group describing the yarn i used.
Its RICO CREATIVE REFLECTION yarn in candy. I love this yarn because as well as being sparkly and very yummy its very long ! The yardage is great and I made the jumper with 4 ball s !!!
not the best knitting lol I know !
I'm uploading some photos of our walk on the Offas Dyke these were taken last autumn.
So fed up ! One of my fave yarns has been discontinued ! I made both my children lovely jumpers using stylecraft safari chunky yarn and it made wonderful patterns , quick to knit up ! I was planning on making more jumpers in the different colourways ! Completely not fair !
After looking around on the net i came across an excellent blog explaining it all. here's the link PEA SOUP OF THE DAY , So i got a ball of 100% wool and went found my cake food colourings out of my kitchen and this is the result !
It was great fun and my children helped me dye it.
