The snow came to stay but I’m sufficiently dug out and knitting on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Making good progress with ‘Ariel’ aka: Absinthe Mermaid, the Manos Fino is a treat to work with and a perfect sub for Tosh Merino Light incidentally.
I dug out an old skein of Ruby Sapphire sock yarn and am playing with the bones of a new design. RS yarns were an Indie company that I loved. Generous skeins and very limited colours, many customised with their fans names – yup, there is a ‘Karin’ colourway 🙂 The one that I’m working with is ‘Heather’, a lovely, springtime mix with touches of teal and sand that keep it from being too saccharine. ‘Biaisée’ is the working name for this scarf.
I have a lot of a skein leftover from my ‘Metallicus‘ tee and have been churning out these awesome little soap savers (or cell phone cases said my Mum when I gave her one Friday night). They take minutes to hook up and I have some pretty stone beads to add as tie stops. I think I’m up to six of them now with another on the hook – they’re a great little ‘green’ item and mine are also vegan friendly 🙂
I’ve been stocking my Etsy shop with more cross stitch, hardanger and vintage kitsch; also some cute and out-of-print children’s patterns. Dinosaurs never go out of style!
I hope everyone had a great weekend – ciao for now!
