Work in Progress Wednesday - {28-02-12} exciting news


Hello wednesday *Waves*

Frist off let me say a huge thank you to everyone that has signed up for my Rainbow yarn give away, if you Havant yet don’t worry it’s not too late! Giveaway ends this Sunday!
Aside from all the Rainbow madness, I have a special WIP to tell you guys about, Last week I got a message from Lauren O’Farrell {aka Deadly Knitshade} Author of Stitch London and Knit in the city, i can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was about this, I am a big fan of Laurens work and stalk her all over the net! So it was such an honour to be asked if I would like to custom dye some yarn for her new book “Stitch New York” now obviously I can’t go in to details, but I can with Laurens permission show you the yarn I dyed for her
I can’t Waite until the book comes out, so I can see the finished objects.
{My yarn in a book!! How awesome is that!!}
Made quite a bit of progress with the Pogona snice last week, this is my favourite knit to date; the pattern is brilliant at show casing my gorgouse Rainbow yarn, and it breaks up the purl rows which is always a big thumbs up from me lol
I also have another WIP in the works, I have ordered some Style craft in rainbow colours {of course} and I am going to make myself a crochet blanket comprised with granny squares and a knitted flower in the centre of each one, the design is in my head at the moment and I am just working out how I am going to work my rounds, but I am hoping this is a “one a day project” I can actually stick to hehe.
On the yarn side of things, I have been working on some witches brew colourways, so if you like black, with splashes of colour look out for shop updates on Twitter and Facebook.
On Friday I will be back with some Yarn porn, until then have a great week everyone  xx
