The yarn is HF merino aran (the yarn has changed slightly recently, it’s now a bit softer and also superwash, big thumbs up from me!). The colourway is Ink, a deep semi-solid blue and needle size is 4.5mm, so the whole thing went really fast, I’d say it took me mere 3 weeks to complete.
On another note, we have a new puppy! Well, to call him ‘puppy’ is a bit of a stretch… he’s a 7 year old German Shepherd, a really big one too. We’re calling him Brian. I got him as a foster dog, but we fell in love with him, so we have decided to keep him. I say ‘we’ but he’s officially Neal’s dog. He’s lovely, calm and gentle. He has spent the first seven years of his life in someone’s back garden, tied to a pole.
btw: he really needs a different collar, he has this half-choker one on at the moment, but it’s so loose on his neck that even if he pulls on the leash it actually doesn’t close up on his neck. Just so you know. I don’t personally like those collars, I feel like for most dogs, there’s no need.
That brings the count of dogs in the house to 3. Thankfully, the garden is almost an acre big and the house is really big too. It also means a LOT of vacuuming 🙂
