There's no better place to browse patterns, network with other crafty types, get advice on how to fix your spinning wheel, and even help plan your next mini-vacation! Everyone is just really keen to share!
I thought I'd share a few of the projects I've been working on, or had my eye on (you'll need a free ravelry account to access these)
Right now, I'm working on a crocheted soaker for baby diapers by Good Housekeeping (a pattern that's atleast 50 years old!) with some unraveled wool sweater yarn. The important aspect here, being that you use 100% wool; such as this handpainted, 100% Peruvian Highland wool in my shop:
I also just added this knit beanie by Jessamyn Van Den Elzen to my list of favorites, which would also be perfect to use with a yarn similar to above:
A lot of people who purchase my thick 'n thin handspun yarns make baby hats. I spotted this Long Tails Beanie by Jen Bartlett that would work perfectly with those yarns:
(wouldn't it look great with this?)
If you are wanting to make an adult hat with some chunky handspun, the First Hat pattern by Nikol Lohr would be perfect:
I love the leafy design! Not sure which yarn I am going to use yet... hoping to stumble upon an earthy green or brown. We'll see!!
