These Fingerless Gloves and Ponytail hats are handspun, using NZ wool, Alpaca and Soyabean Fibre. The combination of fibres and colours make each set unique and they are warm. The buttons on the back of the hat are able to be opened to make room for your ponytail. Both the gloves and hat are finished with crochet flowers. These ones have been sold, but there are more to come. What could be better for a gift for a special person. My email is email@example.com for more information.

It is made with my handspun yarn (Wool, Alpaca, Silk blend) plied with a very fine silk thread. It was then dyed as a self striping yarn of about 20 metres of each colour. I began with a pattern that started with 3 stitches and increasing each side. I decided that I wanted to change the design and began with 35 stitches instead to make it fit around back of neck. Because the yarn had definite colour changes, I added 2 rows lace to make the transition between colours softer. It was finished off with a 4 chain crochet edging with beads inserted.
I enjoyed this project and I think there might be some more self striping yarn dyed in the near future.

This embroidery was created from a photograph taken by Tony Maheno Photography.
He has given me permission to use it.
I copied the photo onto fabric, outlined the gate and post, cut it out and stitched them onto a background silk fabric with a light felt padding under them. I then embroidered over the colours to create a textured look to depict the weathered look of the old gate
The picture below gives a close up of the detail. It was an enjoyable project and I plan to do more similar to this
