And now for something new and different, at least for me. A crescent shaped shawl with diagonal sweeps of color, including lacy sections. I used lighter weight merino wools, like Silky Merino, Rastita and Cashmerino, along with some of my hand dyed merinos. It was supreme luxury to knit. If you aren't a knitter, it may be hard to understand the feeling of deliciously soft yarns runny through your fingers as you knit. It is a sensation that is like petting a fluffy kitten.

Eyelet Scarf #2
Eyelet Scarf #2, Toconao by Araucania, 100% merino, Plymouth Gina, 100% wool. 80"x14". Available for $60 plus shipping. SOLD
You know I make stuff for sale because I love to knit and want to share the finished pieces. I particularly love this long scrumptious design, which begins with only a few stitches and grows to the widest section and then decreases back to the tiny ends again. So versatile, stylish and cuddly.

Sideways Shawl #7
As previously mentioned, I am trying to learn a new photo editing program, to make my instagram posts more informative.I think I am getting there! But it is so much easier to post the picures here on Blogger, and make them bigger too.
This is the cowl lying out flat, top on the right, point on the left. and here it is from the back. I think the inside is just as pretty as the outside.
This was not knit as a commission so it is available for $45 + shipping. Email me at fibermania at gmail dot com. SOLD

My friend Patsy
This gorgeous shawl, knit by Patsy, out of my stash, is now finished, blocked and displayed on the woman-ekin (Patsy's name for my mannekin). It is made from luxurious 70% silk/30% merino yarns, and the red part is hand dyed. I made the donut to hold it together (totally removeable). This would make a wonderful gift for someone you love, even YOU. Available for $45 plus shipping, which is probably around $5. Email me at fibermania at g mail dot com. SOLD
