Finished Project – Fakery Curl

Back in May last year, I was lucky enough to win some bamboo yarn in a giveaway from the lovely Joey at Little Black Dog SA.

It was such a lovely yarn, but I couldn’t work out what I wanted to knit with it until I spotted this book…

I added it to my wish list and fortunately Santa – or maybe it was my mother in law – bought me a copy for Christmas. The moment the family left after Christmas, I pulled out the yarn and cast on…

  2. That turned out stunning! You did such beautiful work and I love the shape. I felt a bamboo / cotton blend awhile back and it was super soft. Did this soften up after soaking / blocking? I think you may have said awhile back that it was itchy? If not, sorry I mixed you up!

    1. Thank you. Yes, it does work well with the pattern and it was lovely to knit 🙂 I confess to being a little disappointed I’ve finished it. Thank you so much again for giving it to me – such a generous gift that brought such pleasure into my life and will continue to do so 🙂

      1. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed our local yarn, as you are very fond of your own local yarns too. To think our seasons and weather and temperatures are pretty different, but yarn and knits and pretty goodies always keeps us connected. I am very honoured that you choose to make such a stunning shawl with it, thank you. It looks stunning on you. 🙂
