Dutch Girl Yarns

We had a four day weekend and I spent some time in the Dye Studio.

 Some lace weight yarn for Wexford Dry Goods

But the most fun to create ... The Extended Rainbow of Sock Yarn.
This is going to Painted Trillium Yarns in my home town of Hudsonville, MI.  =)

I don't talk about my little cottage business of dyeing yarn very much as I do not want this to feel like a Spammy Blog.  Ick ... don't like those Blogs.At.All.  =(  

But I do like color ... just look at my hooky, knitting, and quilty projects.  =)  Dyeing yarn is just another way for me to get my Color Fix!!

A bit of Recycle AND Crochet

My scissors and rotary cutters used to be stored in a lovely milk glass vase.  The base chipped badly (more like a CHUNK) when I was cleaning up my Work Room last week so I needed a replacement right away.

So I rummaged around in the recycle bin, found my Stylecraft Stash, and pulled up Attic 24 for some inspiration.  I was very happy to use my collection of buttons that I bought at the Thrift Shop.

Best $1 I've spent in a long time.  =)

Hourglass Pillow

Hot off the sewing machine and slightly overstuffed with a down pillow insert.  =)

This is the first time I've used Essex Linen (solid color) and it was a Very Nice Experience.  
Next up ... Chartreuse or Aqua.  =)  Oh yes that will be Pretty!

Hope you have a Restful and Relaxing Weekend!!

PS - Bonus points to anyone who can name the painting in the background

Stripey-Stripe Tomten

I was in Garter Stitch Heaven while knitting this sweater!

The only seam in this entire sweater is the three needle bind off on the top of the hood!

Buttons ... they make or break the project.  

Elizabeth Zimmerman's Tomten Jacket 

#7-32" circular (I switched to a 60" cable on the buttonband)

Stash yarn - all worsted weight wool

Size - 4/5ish??  I sent it to my sister for her daughter to wear.  
She just turned 3 years old and it fits her well.  =)
