I have been having a finishing binge! I have FINALLY got Mum’s jacket up on Etsy and Ravelry, under its Sunday name of Ruth’s jacket. As you have probably forgotten what it looks like, here it is again:
It is made with ColourMart’s 20% silk, 20% cashmere, 60% merino. I used 4 strands of the 2/28 to make a DK.
I have also got the Gansey Workbook on Etsy, and hope to be putting it various gansey patterns in my Ravelry store over the next few days. I need to get the individual patterns up first, and finding the info is the hold up!! I DID find all the pix this afternoon – I had taken them off the computer ages ago and this afternoon finally found the disc they were on. I have now transferred them to my external hard drive. Isn’t technology wonderful?!
While I was putting the jacket in my Ravelry store, I noticed again the option of selling in aid of Haiti. There have been a lot of initiatives like that over the past couple of weeks, but I will not be joining in. All my giving is done through the bank by Gift Aid, so that it is traceable and the charity gets the extra 28%.
