Customer Love: Some Rainbow Rajgan used for “Speedline” by Alexandra Tinsley

Another  ICHF completed project, this time from Helen, who bought 3 skeins of Rainbow dyed Rajgan from me and turned nearly 2 of them (170g)  into a  ‘Speedline’ by Alexandra Tinsley.

This one is a simple knit, and made in silk, is going to be light yet warm. I love the way the rainbow had knitted; lovely little dots of colour, and very little pooling. She used a larger needle that advised; 6mm Symfonie knit pro interchangeables – 120cm circular needle –  and looking at the knitting close-up, I think she made the right call.

I love seeing what the yarns inspire people to do, whether they make something up, or use a ready-made pattern to give a new outlook. And this little wrap is definitely going to keep Helen warm thrown over shoulders during the long summer evenings, and snug over the winter under her coat!

She’s going to use the rest to made a beanie style hat to go with – I’m looking forward to the pics!
