Some new stuff in the shop

I’ve finished a couple of gorgeous new scarves and a cute bag, have a look!

Trick or Treat Handspun Gradient Scarf Retro Rascals!


You’d think all I do is make yarn

I do actually leave the house each day, I promise!  It’s just that I’ve only wanted to make yarn lately, craft-wise that is, so that’s what I’ve been doing.  Here are some pics of my latest sweater spin.  1100 yards of aran weight merino/silk blended from 5 different braids of fiber.

A few new toys


I’ve been obsessed with making soft toys for the last few weeks.  I made 2 gorgeous hippos and have already been able to gift one to it’s new home.  It was hard to send it away, I will need to make one for myself eventually.

Just look at those faces!

And I made a giant slug for another small friend!


So much toy crafting going on!  I barely had time to finish this gorgeous woven scarf.  It’s made in Bugga and the color is “Painted Damsel”.


And finally, I made this bag several weeks ago.  I love the fabric, wish I could source more of the tattoo flash twill.


Happy crafting!

Some new handspun and handwovens

I’ve been spinning like mad lately.  Here is one of 3 skeins I’m working on for a sweater.  It’s worsted/aran undyed merino, about 500 yards.

And about 500 yards of some Southern Cross Fibers polwarth/cashmere/silk.  I will be using this in a sweater for D.

And a scarf I wove for my friend Elisa.  It’s made of cashmere Gothsocks in the color “He’s A Mean One” with some black skinny bugga thrown in to stretch the yardage.

I’ve been working on some more woven pouches and a larger bag for the shop as well.

And some socks I started yesterday.  The pattern is Marlene, aren’t they gorgeous?  The yarn is bugga in Ruby Tailed Wasp.


Hope you’re having a crafty, relaxing weekend!
