Real Woolly Wool from Real Sheepy Sheep

Posted on


I cast of a sweater months ago, finished off all the ends – and tucked it away in a drawer.

So it was a real delight to put said sweater on for the first time today. It’s been a cold and crisp day, the type of day that begs for woolly layers.

Twist Again by Robynn Weldon

The pattern is Twist Again by Robynn Weldon and it’s knitted in DK BFK Masham.

This pattern took a bit more attention that I’m used to giving my knitting – those cables meant keeping the chart handy and crossing off the rows. It’s a fun knit though, and I’d happily make another one.

The close ups let you see the cable detail and how well this yarn works for this type of project. Apologies for the truly appalling lighting in the top photo – these were snapped on my phone and the light makes the colour look a lot more like porridge and a lot less like silver.

You can find Robynn’s patterns on Ravelry – there are lots of gorgeous things, including a couple of shawls which use our mini skeins.

You can find the yarn used for this sweater here. The yarn uses fleece from BFL and Masham and it’s spun in Yorkshire, so it’s a wonderfully local yarn for us. It’s 100% wool too – and when the trend seems to be to label things as wool when they’re 100% synthetic that feels good.
