Latest Custom Order

These were finished and sent off just before I moved.  Trish, the customer, had bought this yarn (malabrigo twist) but didn't quite know what she wanted to do with it. 
So she had me crochet her a matching pair of fingerless gloves and neckwarmer based on a couple of my previous designs.  She also sent me some matching yellow lucite buttons that complimented the yarn nicely.

I was really impressed with the yarn, it is a bulky weight, hand-dyed baby merino wool.  It almost has the softness of cotton.  I would definitely recommend it to those who find wool itchy.

Update on the moving front: we are settling in quite nicely and I love our new house.  I haven't unpacked my studio because it still has to be renovated.  But I'm hoping to slowly start spinning and dyeing more yarn over the next month, so stay tuned!
