HUNTER


Before I forget: this yarn was bought from Jan at THE WOOLHUNTER. Excellent service, excellent yarn, excellent prices. The colourway is called Garland and is a 75% Bluefaced Leicester25% Nylon yarn.
425 m per 100 gms. I used KnitPro (KnitPicks) circulars, 2mm. Each knitted on it's own needle concurrently. The yarn is beautifully soft, easy to knit with. I love the way it pooled aroudn the gusset and heel. i wish it could have pooled all over. I am like that, I love yarns to pool and mine rarely do! I used my Andersson Method of construction and my Andersson heel Mach II.

MACH II heel.

Love the colors! I've got to look up how to do your heel as I'm not having success with my recent attempts at a new type fitting me very well.

Very nice, I too like how the colour has pooled around the ankle.

Way to go Colin. It's always a treat to look at your work. Puppies sure are growing fast also.

Absolutely lovely! I'm crazy about those colors! Thanks for telling us where you got that yarn; I may have to have some for myself. :-)

Wow - shame on me - and I was thinking you were naming them after Tab Hunter (of John Waters' Polyester fame, LOL)
sigh....
