Susan is one of my customer's from the Exeter WSD guild's fleece day on Saturday. She didn't want to be photographed up close, but did want me to show off her knitting... fair enough and thank you! I spied Susan early on, wondering if the cardi was indeed made in colourway 'Berry' and it was great to discover that it was!
Susan was up the night before finishing off, so that she could show me... that's a dedicated knitter for you!
It was lovely to see how the colours pooled and repeated... it was also very hard to see where one skein joined another, which is tricky when using hand dyed batches. Susan was very proud and so was I... it's always great to see how my fluff knits up. Thank you Susan!
It's also great to see how customers wear the fluff they spin or knit with... for example Susan wore her cardigan with a matching top and darker trousers... even her necklace complimented the greens. I loved her style... it really made the knitting sing. I think that's important when you spend hours on something...
