Have you tried any of the yarn ‘cakes’ that seem very popular at the moment?
I had to have a go and started with a Stylecraft Special Candy Swirl, colour: Fruit Salad
I especially like the ones I’ve seen where the colours gradually blend into each other, so I was a little disappointed that this one did not do that…..
…… but I was absolutely amazed that it seemed to have been created perfectly for Zoya Matyushenko’s design ‘Sol’, with the colour changes occurring on or near each round change. I did not cut the yarn at all, this is exactly as it came out, with a little yarn to spare.
The yarn is 100% acrylic DK worked with a 4mm hook.
I loved making it but now that it is finished and blocked, I don’t really have a use for it.
It measures 17″ or 43cm across
It could be a large table mat, or attached to fabric to make an 18″ cushion cover – do you have any other ideas?
Would anyone like it?
I’m offering it to you lovely lot first – after a week I’ll put it in my Etsy shop at a nominal price.
The ‘cake’ cost £6.99 but I’m happy for it to go to a good home for free. I would love it to be used in some way.
You can go to my ‘Contact Me’ page and message me if you would like it.
I’m not expecting a rush, but if there is more than one person who would like it, I’ll put names in a hat and draw one out next Friday.
Over at Nanacathy’s place there’s much to have a good old yarny natter about
