It is so pretty!
The yarn is so soft and the colors are so delicate; I cannot wait to make the legwarmers! (I am knitting them for a book so I will only be able to post pictures after receiving permission or the book is out!)
A handwritten note was included with the yarn purchase from The Loopy Ewe! Not only am I impressed with the fast delivery (shipped the day I ordered) but the owner took the time to make a personal note with a cute little doodle! It really brightened my day! I would definitely recommend them for any yarn or other craft related purchases.
*Blast from the past* Remember this yarn I spun and plied with beads and glittery thread?
Well, I have at last put it to good use in a cowl (yes, another cowl; what can I say?)
Once again, I had no pattern; this is just an improvised crochet pattern. I chained 60, joined it in the round with one twist (it was a little awkward for the first row), then the rest was worked with a double crochet in every other stitch and chaining one in between to maintain stitch count.
Sits nicely! Not so much for neck warmth as a pretty accessory, but I really like it! Someone already asked me where I bought it from and they were completely shocked when they learned I made it completely from a pile of wool!
***I really need a real camera to take pictures that accurately portray the color and details of my projects. Adding it to the Christmas List!
