This is the blog of a constant crafter - a 'showcase' for some of the things I make, some hints for crafting & recylcing - lots of photos and some words. I hope it will inspire.

colinette throw

The throw is to be a wedding gift and is the first time in almost 30yrs of knitting that I bought a kit! A Perugino throw kit, in the "capuccino" colour-way. Well the colours were really pink - utterly gorgeous but not suitable for the couple getting hitched. The kit had 6 hanks of yarn, 4 in 'sunset' (the gorgeous pinks) 1 in a blue grey & 1 in 'caramel' which is a mix of colours, mostly blues and gold/tan. So after much debate I got 3 more hanks of 'caramel' and have swapped them for the 'sunset' pinks. The result is still gorgeous (anything you do with Colinette yarn is bound to be gorgeous) and, as a bonus, I have some lovely pink Colinette yarn with which to make something else ... ah but what?
