On Saturday I went to the I Knit London Haiti Fundraiser Tea Party, a nice opportunity to contribute a tiny bit while also enjoying plentiful tea, cake and knitting. I am in one of the photos, but my cleveage looks giganteous so I’d rather not link to it :D

In one of the fundraising games, I won this:

It’s a 50g hank of merino organic wool, handspun (double knit) and dyed using only natural plant dyes, from Nurwool. Pretty cool, eh? But what do I do with it? It’s such a small amount and the yarn is pretty scractchy! Yet so beautiful… Project ideas and pattern recommendations pleeeease…

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. Pa da, WordPress je mnogo bolji, zar ne :) ?

    Lepa vunica, lep dogadjaj …. nadam se da ce i kod nas biti nako nesto ……. ili bih mozda ja to morala da uradim :)

    • Ima li kod vas nekakva knitting group? Čini mi se da u Zagrebu nema, možda samo nekakvi tečajevi… Ali meni se ovo jako sviđa – skupi se hrpa ljudi (uglavnom žena :D) u nekom pubu i fino piju pivo i pletu. Zapravo, trebala bih napisati jedan post o tome :)

  2. Po Italiji ih ima sve više .. do sada sam bila na susretima u Torinu, Milanu i ovdje u Rimu, gdje nas najviše muči prostor za neka veća okupljanja. Ovdje lokali baš nemaju prostor za sjedenje ili ako imaju nije baš veliki :-(

    • Kad sam bila u Norveškoj tamo su se okupljali u restoranima – dogovorili bi se s vlasnikom da im rezervira par stolova, bez obaveze da se nešto jede – i onda bi bili tamo po 5-6 sati. I naravno da onda uvijek netko naruči neku hranu, netko piće, pa se valjda restoranu isto isplati. Možda da probate tako nešto?

  3. Hi,
    Do you know what happened to the Nurwool website. I bought some of their yarn at Ally Pally and love it. But I can’t find anything about them anywhere on the net.
