Been keeping a secret............................

I have been keeping a secret since half way through last year which I can finally show you here.

Back in June 2008 I was asked by Jeni of Fyberspates to knit up a sample for her in her lovely scrumptious yarn. Well the pattern is now available on her website for purchase so do go and have a look. Just click here.

So here are my pictures of the knitting up and the final product.





This colourway is Olive and is the chunkier version of scrumptious. It only took 5 skeins to knit the whole thing in the small size. This yarn goes a long long way. It only took 240grm to knit my Hey Teach.

This is such a lovely yarn and is the same stuff that I knitted up my Hey Teach over christmas. The colours are really vibrant and it is a pleasure to work with. It was the reverse stocking stitch on the fishermans sweater on how good it looked with the scrumptious yarn that inspired me to make the changes to the Hey Teach pattern.

You can find the yarn here.

I love that! It looks super snuggly, and the yarn looks amazing, too.
