My Creative Space

I'm flitting between several projects at the moment. I work on bits here and there. One of the projects is this one ...



It's another crocodile stitch neckwarmer. The first one was a bit of an experiment which turned out shorter than I had wanted it to be. Learning from my mistakes in that one, I have embarked on a second neckwarmer.

This one is done in a gorgeous self-striping single ply yarn by Crystal Palace called Mini Mochi. I think this colourway is called Rainbow Trout. The dye length is perfect for this project - I'm getting one shade of colour per row of scales. How perfect is that?! I am using a bigger hook and it's working up looser.

What are you up to this week?

  8. Ooh, I love how the stripes are coming out. I have some Mini Mochi that's been calling to me from my stash for far too long. It's so soft, and seeing your neck warmer is making my fingers itch to get it out. Lovely!
