A certain young lady has asked for another throw (See University Halls).  Surprisingly, the colour pink was requested and I decided it would be a good project to use up the 100% oh so soft Talluleh art yarn that I span using the coreless corespinning technique.

This yarn has been dwindling as it made perfect ‘Throatlatch and Tails’ for little girls and Moebius cowls for bigger girls!  Personal note:  I must feature Talluleh, so you can all see where the inspiration for Throatlatch and Tails arose.

Back to the second throw; I have knitted the above yarn in garter stitch on our Size 50 Mega Needles for the centre piece and will work panels on all four sides in Tunisian Crochet Cable stitch.

Many of you know that I detest, absolutely detest having to go back to stitch seams, once the knitting/crochet process is complete.  One of the benefits of Tunisian Crochet is the facility to pick up stitches and work panels as I go, eliminating the need for seaming.   I will have to dye more of Talluleh’s locks, but will spin them very thick and thin and then Navajo ply.

It seems to me that this throw design would be good for the workshop on January 28th.  You could crochet the central section and move onto integrating a cabled panel by the end of the day, enabling you to work at your own pace as yarn and time allow!

So now you have a choice: Make either a Bathroom Rug or a Cosseting Throw.   Daddy or Chips? Daddy or Chips ……..?
