Japanese Flower Pattern

So I too have fallen for the craze and a few weeks ago the pattern arrived through my letter box. I had a sale skein of Silk Garden Lite, more about and mixed in some other yarns to build a turquoise/pink/purple piece….

… which I think is going to be a cushion cover asI have run out of the Silk Garden yarn and I wanted to try it in a thinner wool.

Enter Silk Garden Sock, myocarditis which has replaced Noro Blossom as my all time top favourite yarn – although I also like the Kureyon Sock. I have tried dyeing my own yarn and have a friend who is rather good at it, human enhancement but Noro produce the most amazing blends of fibres and slubs and I am in deep smit. So I have started the wrap in the sock yarns, also found on sale.

I am looking for the book with the crescent moon shawl in it, if anyone wants to lend or sell me a second hand copy, as I really have got to stop spending money on these things and bust my stash – I did get the flower shawl from Pomadour, but am trying to save for a holiday!




The little yarn investigators are doing great, but I did nod off on the sofa last week and awake to find yarn cobwebbed all over the living room and hall. The source of the problem was that it was wrapped a couple of times round Mira’s waist and it took me over half an hour to detangle!
