New gloves pics up the gallery 😀
This is a simple sweater I’m working on.
I *Love* this yarn; it’s bamboo-cotton, called “Terra” from SWTC, home to some fantastic vegan yarns — “Jasper.”
Here is another great color I bought previously; I made a hat out of this gorgeous color — “Amber”…
I have to really emphasize that pictures of this yarn do not do it justice! It’s different when you see it live. It’s also different, as you imagine, when knitted. It has a gorgeous drape without being heavy. It’s stunning yarn. It makes even the most simple patterns look much, much nicer. Not too-too expensive, but worth every cent!
Oh, and bonus: No fussy skein! There is no fooling with it trying to find the proper end, no tangling, knotting, twisting. You just start knitting. I love that; It baffles me why all yarns don’t come ready to go like these
The “Onyx” is one of my favorites.
Again, pics are unjust! This produces a beautiful black fabric.
I bought these from one of my favorite yarn stores, YarnMarket; My other favorite (they have fantastic sales!) is WEBS. I like Knit Picks yarns (their needles more), but they don’t have as wide a variety for vegans; but what they do have is pretty good and very inexpensive — and that’s always good 😀
I need to do a post on the vegan yarns I’ve used. The availability of good-quality AND colors, and oh, the variety — of vegan yarns nowadays is just fantastic (same for fabric). Five years ago it was fairly limited; now there are so many to choose, you won’t miss sticky ol’ animal hair (*ick*) one bit ;^).
WEAR YOUR OWN HAIR! 😛
