|A pair of slippers for Farmer Bob - each white stitch is a lock of washed wool approx. 5" in length (folded in half). I've turned over the edge so you can see how the wool is piling up inside. As they are worn, the thrums will pack and felt.|
|This is Basil Ranfurly, our new Blue Faced Leicester Ram. Are your fingers twitching to touch the wool? I'm sure his lambs will be gorgeous. We'll have to wait until May to see!|
This was a fun hat to make. It can be made to fit as a loose slouchy hat, a tam or a skullcap.
I made this one with handspun yarn from my black Corriedale "Sweet Heart" and alternated every couple rows with Noro Silk Garden sock yarn.
It fits a one year old head. To bad I didn't get a photo of the cute baby who modelled it (had to use my old doll instead).
This original pattern is a design by Kourtney at Dollybird Workshop
When Kourtney heard that I was going to make stipes, she suggested making the brim in corrugated ribbing. Great idea! The edge is i-cord bind-off. Oh, I forgot to mention ... this is a free pattern too. Thanks Kourtney!
