It has turned into the time of year when I can’t post pictures of many of my finished objects, because they’re Christmas presents for friends and family who read the blog. I’m busily hooking, still on my use-up-yarn quest and making lots of hats, scarves, fingerless mitts, and little fun amigurumi, but if I post … More Buttons, buttons everywhere
So who else has been playing with Stylecraft’s new(ish)* Colour Pool yarn? It comes in six gorgeous colourways, which all make it absolutely simple to get a delightful Argyll effect.
