Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things.....
...and these are just some of the things I'll have at our Countryside Studio Tour this weekend and next, December 4, 5, 6 & 11, 12, 13.
Cocktail knives and forks
Kirsten models a new shawl with collar in a new colorway, 'Bluebell'
New nuno felted scarves
Felt squares for crafting
some of the felt pieces look like watercolors.
A hoodie baby blanket out of the softest cotton ever (I know, ugly baby)
Holiday 'This is It' yarn. One skein makes a beautiful scarf, just in time for the holiday parties.
'Minuet', my new lace yarn with a whopping 2480 yards in an 8 oz. skein!
New colorway, 'Morning Mist', inspired by the view across the road from us, the sun rising over the foggy field below.
I really like the way this Retro-Active Cabled Scarf turned out. It is mostly moss stitch, with a cable right down the middle, a slit on both ends to pull the spade shaped ends through. A great scarf to try out four types of stitch patterns.
It's really long too, about 80".
Miss Crossbeak checks out the stars. Add a star to your holidays. I've painted quite a few, ready for any room inside or on a building outside.
