I know I am not alone as a jewellery maker who also likes to dabble with other crafts. I have enjoyed knitting on and off for a while now but recently my 'dabbling' with yarn has been taken to another level. I blame fabulous podcasts by the likes of Amy and Tracey.
If you are a knitter that frequents podcasts you most certainly will have heard of the fabulous Stephen West. I was very lucky at Christmas because there was a copy of Westknits Best Knits waiting for me under the tree. After much deliberation I decided to dive in and make the 'Doodler'
I had to get myself a willing volunteer to help me photograph the shawl in all its glory.
Mustard colour cable is Scrumptious Lace by Fyberspates
The variegated yarn in the main body is hand-dyed by UK indie dyer Amy Florence. This is her Paradise base in the colourway Nougat.
The wave along the bottom is a Louisa Harding yarn called Amitola colour 107.
I will leave you with some more shots of my model wearing the Doodler.
My current yarn project is a hap in Kate Davies book The Book of Haps more on that in another post.
