|IxCHeL Yarn for an IxCHeL Jumper by Catherine Clark|
Now, on with the show!
PomPom magazines latest Moon issue, has some pretty awesome patterns and I was totally “over the moon” (pardon the pun) by the IxCHeL jumper pattern by Catherine Clark. You can get the pattern or the issue through Ravelry here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ixchel
To make a long story short I decided to dye up some yarn to make the jumper and maybe even a hat using the pattern, but you can make the most awesome shawl as well by simply adapting the pattern. Anything goes I always say ! For the jumper you need appr 3 or 4 indigo dyed yarns which are called “Empty sky” and one or 2 of the "gold star" yarn. If you would like to make yourself a beanie 1 skein of each will do and you will have left over to make yourself a scarf as well.
Here are some photos for inspiration:
The IxCHeL jumper in progress
A lot more to go but the moons are there in all their glory !
or, why not make a beanie?
you can also choose a sock weight yarn without silver angelina of course ! A superfine merino with silk and a tiny bit of nylon is the best non bling option !
a superfine merino with cashmere and nylon and silver angelina , my silver star yarn , 423meters /100g/$32 ;
or my IxcHeL sock yarn with superfine merino, silk and nylon $410meters/100g/$29
or lace weight: a superfine merino with over 700meters/100g/$30.
Angora Bunny and Wallaby handspun yarn
our bunnies are groomed every two days
and are given a haircut every 3 months, the wallaby fibre is sourced locally and it takes a long time to find, but especially in mating season the wallabies tend to fight with each other and you can find bits of fibre here and there. That means I do not have lots but it does make it extra special.
