Anyone getting excited for Valentine’s Day? I am.
1.) I made this little stuffed heart from this free pattern on Ravelry. It’s called My Whole Heart. It was fun and quick and now I’m addicted. I made another today but with bigger needles and thicker yarn. I’ll take a picture of that other one soon and post it to my FaceBook page.
2.) Remember the scarf I was working on for what seemed like forever? Ta Da!!!
This is Mustard Seed Yarn Lab superwash wool in bulky….named Triton. I only have one skein left and I’m unsure of whether to keep it or put it up in my shop. Hmmm…
And the proud recipient:
I think it looks like it was made for him. Ha! Mr. Stich patiently waited a very long time for his scarf, and the day I gave it to him was a freakish 60 degrees. Thankfully, the weather soon got back to normal (aka: freezing) so he was able to wear it the next day.
3.) I sell some of my hand dyed roving in a great yarn shop in Newburyport, MA…. A Loom with a View. Quite a while ago, a very nice woman named Helene contacted me to let me know she had bought some of my roving there and she had showed me a picture of the roving after she had spun it. I had called this colorway Emmet.
This is the Thermis Cowl. Is there anything cooler than seeing roving turn into yarn turn into something beautiful? And I love those buttons, too.
4.) Marisa from CA bought my yarn called North Woods and she made this:
It’s like looking at knitter’s porn. Seriously.
This shawl is called Pogona, by Stephen West. I soon realized that Marisa is quite the knitter. She has more of her lovely projects on her blog: Fat Button Girl. And she has bought another skein of my yarn so maybe at some point I’ll have another Fat Button Girl creation to show off. 🙂
Well, it’s late and I’m signing off now. My book and my bed await me. A big thank you to Helene and Marisa for sharing with me!
Good night all!
