Well, I do have a finished object this week, but unfortunately I can't really show you *laughs* Here's a sneak peek though:
Enticing, no? *laughs*
What I can do, however, is tell you about the yarn. I received 6 balls of it in a big bag of yarn given to me by a colleague.
It started life like this:
Not something that appealed, if I'm honest. Very short colour repeats and a cream and blue combination meant that it was unlikely I would use it. But, it's a good quality 100% wool, and it seemed a shame to get rid of it... So I stashed it. Just in case *smiles*
And then the cunning plan of overdyeing it came to mind... So I grabbed the trusty Kool Aid and had a go. Most of what I used was dyed with grape, and some with black cherry. I'm really pleased with how it came out, and it became perfect for some secret knitting... So I got to use some stash and make a cool gift *grins*
I do have 3 and a half balls left, but they can wait until I come up with something else to do with them ;)
