pinterest made me do it


So where have I been for almost a year, why no postings? I've been sucked into the vortex that is Pinterest. See what I love and swoon over and wish I had many lifetimes to make. And why I've been busy pinning elsewhere.

kid silk haze

Rwan Kidsilk Haze-1

Dreaming up a felt and lock knitted combination wrap maybe a cowl or and wanted to remember these two yarns, Rowan kidsilk haze mohair and silk SH00590 and Debbie Bliss Andes alpaca and mulberry silk color 370002. Both are beautiful neutrals and amazingly soft. Can't wait to knit them up. This fluted cowl is lovely, perhaps.

Vivi Losttooth

My baby girl is officially a big girl now, she's lost her first tooth. She is so so so excited. The second loose one was the first to fall out. The other lower front is days away. Bitter sweet.

felt birdie

Felt Birdie

Stabbing away at my third one of these every other night while watching tv. I'm giving them away as Christmas ornaments after I attached a braided embroidery floss holder through the back. I'm still struggling to get the needle in the right place, thinking I need to fetch an upholstery needle, long and with a hook to make it easier. It takes me about three hours to make one of these and I end up with a sore shoulder and numb fingers. Ridiculous right? But love them and so satisfying to stab at the fiber, it's cathartic.

ombre felt

Ombre Length
Merinoblend Width

Using Ashland Bay carbon, grey and blue faced leicester with tussah silk in an ombre blend. I'm hoping to make another zipper fold over clutch with this fabric. I started on a piece of scrim I'd dyed using elephant grey, one of the few dye projects that came out fine. I've had much better luck dying linen and cotton than silk and wool.

Ombre Prefelt

My favorite part is laying out the fluffy bits, they are so lovely, dreamy and relaxing. (the bending over the floor part hurts though!)
