I doubt it, I've used sock wool for shawls, scarves and berets as well as for socks. If it's Patonyle, I'll buy it because I like to have it on hand. Great for all socks, especially children's.
I went to Spincraft in Sydney today for the ribbon. I won't be going there in a hurry again, if possible. It was worse than a jumble sale, even worse than many Spitfight shops I've been in and they seem to be lifting their game somewhat at the moment. Stuff was everywhere, including on the floor. I think that was because bins were overfull and even brushing past them caused a cascade of items to the floor. Most of the yarn was acrylic, 100%, and I wasn't interested.
The end of practically every aisle had a screen playing some form of tutorial, always loudly. Over the top of it was some radio station playing something very mediocre. Noise and mess - I couldn't get out of there quickly enough.
So what did I buy? The Patonyle in the picture and the ribbon, which was the original reason for braving the place. Now I think about it, Woolworths at Town Hall Station sells spools of ribbon, I should have checked there first for colour and width.
I have a very warm, quilted silk jacket which has had a lot of wear. I've been wearing it for the past week. We've just had the coldest May for a very long time and Sydney has been extremely wet. Very heavy deluges of rain which have fallen with little warning. I've lost two umbrellas this month by having them blown inside out. The jacket has been quicker protection than an umbrella in a deluge and gale.
I put the jacket on yesterday to discover the cuffs are worn out. Little splits down the cuff all the way around the wrist. The rest of the jacket is in good condition despite the use. I decided I'd put some braid there as reinforcing. No braid in width needed. No grosgrain ribbon in proper colour, not even black. So this is what I bought and I think I'll try sewing it by hand. A bit like the edging on a quilt.
Sigh. They just don't make things as they used to. After all, the jacket is only just over twenty years old!
