Also this May

Fargyle socks. Two strands of sock yarn held together, makes them extra warm.

Byron's 5th birthday jumper, which is the Zigvest (only with sleeves and a u-neck)

A nice way to use a very multicolored rainbow yarn... use the rainbow yarn for the warp (lengthwise strands) and try to line up the color changes. As you can see, it went out of sync here and there. The weft (and also the edges of the warp) is a black sparkly yarn called Dream in Color Starry.

This is New Zealand merino that was a prize from the HP game on Ravelry. The colorway was called "Jonathan", so I spun the whole thing thinking of apples :)

This newborn size jumper is called Baby Sophisticate. I made it in a reasonably neutral red for my brother and sis-in-law's new bub. Strangely low buttons... but it's thick so it will be warm. 

Also used the same ball of wool to make super-thick twisted rib tube socks for same baby's little feet. Or hands... they'd work just as well for mittens.

Like the rainbow weaving. I like how the colours don't quite line up like they melt into the next. Looks good with the black weft.

The little red cardi is cute too. Grubby will look adorable in it.

Love the Fargyle socks, the weaving and the Jonathan yarn.
