These are knits I made between 1997 and about 2000, using 2-ply Shetland wool spun and dyed by Jamieson and Smith of Lerwick. They are all my own designs.
The first one is a slipover (OK, a tank top) stranded with 2 colours in a row. The edgings are knitted.
The next one is a waistcoat; this one is knitted with 2 strands together, using the purple heather yarn all the times, and changing the second colour from stripe to stripe.
It was knitted in strips, which were then crocheted together on the outside. The bottom edge is a self-hem and the other edgings are crocheted.
And the third one, a tunic sort of thing, is knitted with brown yarn constantly and another (changing every stripe) colour knitted alternately - there's a name for this stitch pattern, but it escapes me at the moment.
This was knitted in one piece to the armholes, sideways and grafted into a tube. The upper part was also knitted sideways in one piece, and crocheted to the lower body on the inside. Then, having made the body with only one seam, I went and put 2 seams in each sleeve, knitting one straight piece and one shaped piece for each. these were crocheted to the body, and the edgings crocheted.
The balls of leftover wool are coyly hiding my *designer* labels. Poser or what? Actually, when I used to make loads of hand-stitched quilts and give them away, I bought some labels from a firm in Berwickshire, enough for a life-time for about £12 - and it seems a shame not to use them. They are hidden because they have my non-blogging name on. (I nearly put "my real name" there, but then began to wonder what my real name is.....)
