Busy Needles

Here's a recent finish, made by request for BJ out in Oregon. She saw one made in similar yarns and luckily I had more of the same in my stash. Of course they are all different, but close enough! The base yarn is Chroma Worsted by Knit Picks. Just a wonderful yummy yarn to knit.

 Then I had this idea for polymer clay shawl pins, and altho they look like I had imagined, I  had some real problems because I didn't not cure them (baking) on the sticks and that weakened them and made them very brittle. Plus I think the skewers I used were not a good choice and I will go with metal for my next attempt. 

 As mentioned, I was dinking around with a new photo program and wanted the ability to make collages of several photos and add text. This cowl made by request for Sue in MI was the result. 

 I love using two yarns that coordinate, and this long scarf (shown doubled) is a good example. Both yarns are graduated, meaning they are spun in blending colorways. 
This one I'm calling the Long Tall Cowl, 80"x7.5", in various multi-fiber blend wools, with silk, cotton, and viscose. Available for $45 plus shipping. Sold
And then a really big shawl that I am calling Thornless Roses, named because the yarns employed have a complete no itch factor. Plymouth Kudo, which is the darker stripes is cotton, silk and rayon, and the lighter pink is Great American Silk and Merino. 78" wide x25" deep, available for $60 plus shipping.

  1. I’d like the long tall cowl!

  2. The colors on all that you have made are gorgeous!! Love the pins...keep working on them.

  3. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from Lymes, I decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband suffered from Lymes and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and I saw testimony of so many people who were cured from Lymes , and so many others with similar body problems, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the herbal cure to Lymes. I never imagined Lymes had a cure not until I contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.Lymes has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on Dr Itua can cure Herpes,Hiv,Cancer,ALS,Copd,HPV,Lupus,MS,Diabetes, and other disease talk to Dr Itua on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony .
