First lots of pics of the Dratted Hemp Jacket (TM) - which I'm counting as finished though in fact I have yet to sew in ends, graft underarms and sew in a zip. A mere bagatelle, i'm sure you'll agree!
Seamless Hybrid construction of back to add just a leetle interest to the project without deviating form the dullness requested by the recipient.
A detail of the front where the travelling stitch zig-zag is reflected rather than identical on each side.
Detail of collar.
Up close and personal with indigo dyed hemp.
To prove there are two (I thought I had completed the second a day or two ago, then realised I had in fact omitted the MMMM (or WWWW) pattern just before the toe, and had to rip out. Oh well, thank heavens for spit splicing.
So now I've started the Gytha hooded top from the Twist Collective winter edition. I'm using Treliske organic rich dark brown merino from NZ for my main colour, with the donkey Bio Natur dyed dark green and rust (and undyed) held with Colinette Parisienne in Velvet Leaf, Ginger and Moss for the contrast colours. Working well, I'm pleased. (I actually bought the Merino from Ecoyarns in Oz, BTW, v helpful).
Detail of Gytha - you can see the colours reasonably accurately here, but in fact the final garment will be mainly dark brown.
Lara - yes, I'll do some pics of the house and neighbourhood soon (but not over the weekend, I'm off to Bristol for a reminder course for GP...).
