|The fibre is dyed by Anna Harris who does lovely dyeing and sells at The Wool Yarn and Fibre Shop at The Tannery. Unfortunately they don't have an online presence and nor does Anna.|
I can also show you a t-shirt I made a few weeks back as a test sew, love this top as it's comfy and looks good.
|This is the Ostara Top by Jennifer Lauren Handmade and I'd seriously recommend you go and buy it. It uses stretch knits, mine is a cotton lycra. Obviously I still need to lose some stomach to show this off properly, but that's a WIP following surgery and will take a while.|
On the fit front I found it worked very well for me in the body, a little tight in the upper arm unfortunately but apparently I was the only one who found that so it may well be my body shape rather than the pattern.
Oh, and I think I'm going back to sugar free again, Christmas derailed me horribly and I've just not got back on that wagon properly since. I'm showing signs of candida issues again and I'm suspecting that might be why this flu hit me harder than it did the kids too. I've got an appointment with a nutritionist and she's got my latest blood test results to help her. I've also got an appointment to be assessed for fascial stretch today, my SIL went to these guys and is feeling much more flexible and pain free as a result, so I've some hope they can help me too. Would be nice to have a pain free neck/shoulder and my left upper arm is a bit stuck too. Plus the lady I'm seeing has experience of working with internal scarring from surgery which I can guarantee I have even with doing all the things I could think of to keep things from seizing up (I've been taking serrapeptase and stretching)
