variegated wools - utiku, tekapo, kairanga, tin shed

Post by JJJ » Sat Sep 23, 2006 10:01 pm

I've been trying to decide what colour wool to buy next, and have been looking at everyone's pics to see how they knit up. I thought it might be helpful to post this as a reference (I hope the creators of these lovely items don't mind me using their pics).

Tekapo wool:

Utiku wool:

Has anyone got pics of gems or mixed berry knitted up?

cool idea :D - before I buy varigated wool I always ask to see, at least a picture of how it looks made up. I have some other varigated that may be able to go on here too, I'll be back!!!

That orchard one looks so nice.
Do you think aurora is okay for newborn or too pinky?

ok, so i am new to this whole knitting thing but can someone clarify for me, what is flat needles compared to knitting in the round? :oops:
I know what circulars are, (are those what you mean knitting in the round?) and what 'normal' needles are :oops:

theres your answer then! :wink: knitting flat is on the straight ones (think scarves) knitting in the round is on circulars - makes a tube (think socks!)
