Nautilus

First of all, if this post looks weird/different then it’s all due to a huge WordPress update that has changed everything!!!! 

Hopefully I can post without too much difficulty…*

Anyhow! A few weeks ago I got the chance to dye some yarn with my wooly playdate pal (it’s great, she has a daughter a year older than Felix so they get a playdate and I get one too! The boys…talk about computers…?)

After a very fun day I was left with 5 10g lots of Blue Leicester wool which I had dyed all kinds of colours, so what to do with them?

Knit of course!

Isn’t he a cutie? It’s a free Knitty pattern, Nautie by Beth Skwarecki and a fun one to make at that, I particularly like how you pick up stitches as you go to twist it into that distinct shell shape…

I used every bit of one of my five lots of wool, and a tiny bit of a second for the head and tentacles. Need to have a think of what to do for the other pretties…for now, I’m pleased with what I have achieved!

Think if I drop enough hints Engel might get me the dyes for Christmas? Or perhaps I shouldn’t start another hobby?

    I love the Nautilus! Such a lovely way to use your wool.

    And as someone who collects hobbies, I say go for it! I’m sure you could come up with some fabulous combinations 🙂
