A little something…a long time in the making!

Do you remember a little while back, in the summer I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous hank of yarn courtesy of Joey of littleblackdogsa all the way from South Africa…WP_20160519_19_02_05_ProWell, this yarn is a dream to hook with and let me tell you I have hooked with it! 

I have hooked and frogged and hooked and frogged, because I wanted this little hank of yumminess to become something special.

and even at the farm.  But, I just didn’t feel the pattern I had chosen was special enough for this beautiful yarn.

The yarn as you can see is a 4 ply cotton organic yarn, which slipped over my hook effortlessly.  Its twist meant that it did not split once during all of its hooking and frogging and it also maintained its tension throughout.  But, the best thing about this yarn from One of a Kind Yarns is the amazing and unique  colourway throughout.  My heart swelled each time the delicate colour  blended into the next gentle tone, non so much as when the lemon hues began to merge with the deep lavender…mmm it is still making me smile now! 

Anyway, let me show you what I finally made…
