I have just finished making a few more gifts.
I dyed some sport weight linen blanks from pink to blue in a rather steep gradient. I would have preferred a more gradual shift of colour, but that will be next time.
These were knitted (55 stitches 70 rows with 3.75mm needles) and then finished off with a round of single crochet to neaten off the edges.
How do you get a crocheted ball to look perfectly round?
Here is my latest attempt. It is more regular in shape than the robins I made recently.
The lucky recipient isn't really bothered about its imperfections as he'll be too busy kicking it around. Fortunately it is made out of sturdy linen so it should last quite a while.
New... Pre-knitted undyed linen blanks, ready for dyeing.
Now available at the introductory price of £10.92
,As you probably know, we already supply 100g hanks of undyed pure linen yarn in our DK weight (Soft White) and in our 4-ply/sport weight (Soft White).
We are now also producing pre-knitted 100% linen blanks, ready for you to dye, or to use as they are, in the Soft White. They come already washed and softened.

With the festive season approaching I have been knitting some gifts.
Here is a new scarf in a new colour way that I dyed and knitted for a friend.
The colour way is Lagoon, which we now supply in DK or Sport weight 100g yarn hanks as well as the new gradient linen yarn blanks.
The scarf is made from 2 x 100g hand-dyed gradient blanks.
