Hand spun hat

https://www.knittingforums.org.uk/gallery/image/200/mini I'm really pleased with this, its fibre I spun myself. The pattern is Sitka spruce by tin can knits. The only down side is that my fibre has quite a lot of texture and colour and doesn't show off the pattern very well, which is a pity. Becaus...

Re: Unsure if this is allowed/in the right post section. Some advice would be very much appreciated.

Hi Dave, to answer your last question is what you're asking achievable , Yes but it's highly unlikely that you'll find anyone here who can really help you.

Gorgeous gradient

My best friend had a significant birthday last month and as she's not a knitter I wanted to make her something special but fun.
