Now available in my Etsy shop.
…then you’ll LOVE this. Back in July I went to Fibre East, and amongst my many purchases there was a mini skein from Willow Knits. It was beautiful yarn, so soft, a lovely colour and nice to knit with.
When I visited her stall at Fibre East, Anne mentioned that she was setting up a mini skein club… and of course I couldn’t resist, so I treated myself to a subscription via her shop on Etsy (click here). The first shipment arrived this week and oh my!
What beautiful colours! This was a truly lovely parcel to come home to after a really long day at work. The colours in this shipment are (left to right in the photo): harlequin, rosewood, lemon ‘n’ lime, hyacinth, and duck egg.
I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with them yet, probably hexipuffs, but I think I’m going to keep these stashed away until I receive my next shipment and can see what others colours there are.
This is a really good way to try different colours of a gorgeous hand-dyed silk yarn, and it’s very reasonably priced too. $20 (approx £13) per shipment (1 shipment per month), which includes postage within the UK. You can sign up for all three months at once, or just get one shipment. A perfect treat for either experienced or amateur knitters/crocheters
This week’s word was chosen by Katy over at Creating Misericordia – pop along to her blog to see who else is playing along. Stumbled here by accident and wondering what Weekword is all about? Click here to find out.
An epiphany is “the sudden realization or comprehension of the (larger) essence or meaning of something” (from Wikipedia), and the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the word epiphany is a lightbulb switching on (complete with ‘bing!’ sound effect). So I decided to have a hunt on Etsy and showcase some of the lightbulb themed items that took my fancy.
What’s in this gorgeous red tin then? A selection of clever and beautiful cards by Jennifer Bishop of Architette Studios.
I stumbled across her work last year and fell in love with it, and my first crush was on her city skyline series.
Beautiful, detailed and elegant – what more could you want?
Jennifer also has a sense of humour, and I was also taken with her Sheeptails stuff.
Again, simple but elegant, and they bring a smile to your face.
I think my favourites are her Construction Cards.
There’s a huge range to choose from, and I selected my ten favourite ones to go in the tin. The red tins are now sold out, but she’s got silver ones available for purchase. The Emergency Correspondance Kit comes with a selection of cards for all occasions (birthdays, weddings, new babies…) as standard, but you can choose your own selection instead if you wish.
Beautiful work by a very talented artist, I highly recommend you go and take a look!
