Sirdar's Crofter wool (DK, fairisle effect, in Skye). I was quite happy with the way this turned out; the stripes are mercifully even, which has nothing to do with me and everything to do with the way the wool has been dyed! This wool isn't as yellow as this image suggests - that's thanks to the shop lights.
Sirdar Firefly, this is the first of my knitted items to sell - I'm so thrilled! This close-up doesn't really do justice to the yarn - it's in the midnight colourway, a near-black with pink and blue sparkles, and is perfect for jazzing up an evening outfit. A bit tricky to work with, mind, as it's a ladder yarn that consists of two threads and it's very easy to get the needles caught between the two. But yes. My first sale! Whee!
