Thank you to everyone who stopped by yesterday for your very thoughtful and interesting comments, it was really nice to see/hear/read(?!) your perspectives.
Onto today... When I posted about the awesome Crobots book my mum bought me, I had completely forgotten to post about her other present (no really, I forgot, I wasn't saving it for a second blog post at all *laughs*)
This came to me from Turkey:
According to mum, all of the ladies in the marketplace were knitting with it, and she thought it would be a fun challenge for me to make something with it. Thanks mum ;)
A bit of googling indicated that it is ladder ribbon yarn, similar to Bernat Matrix or Sirdar Firefly. Close up of the yarn, in case you've never seen it before (I know I hadn't!)
I've looked through some of the projects on Ravelry, but I'm not entirely sure what to make with this. I'm not generally a fan of how ribbon yarn knits up, and this is different anyway, so I'm trying to figure out what to do with it to make it look pretty and something I would wear.
I have actually succeeded, in a very small way, but it only uses a tiny amount of the yarn (and you'll have to wait until FO Friday for the reveal). So, any ideas?!
