Hei there… I like to post today some of my finished projects I talked about on the weekend. I know my blog is for paper crafters but since I do see my blog also kind of a diary – I hope you do not mind i f I post here and there things made with my second hobby.
Some people think handmade things are fairly inexpensive to get or to make. All of you who work at least 3hours plus on a card and you look at all your supplies stashed on your desk and cupboards know this is not true.
The same it is with good quality yarns.
I used to make sweaters and clothes for my boys but now they are so big that it is a big task to just finish one piece and I decided to go with some easy and quick things to make. Now lets talk about the yarns… from bottom to to top you see. Finally everything has been blocked and finished up:
1) red/orange cowl uses 3 skeins of Debbie Bliss Andes yarn – the most beautiful yarn! I loved every minute knitting with this yarn. I am going to keep this scarf for myself because it is so light weight and long enough to pull over my head if it is getting windy. I do usually not wear hats. (Debbie Bliss Andes yarn runs about 14.00 a skein)
2) is a green scarf made from hand died and hand spun to thin and thick yarn and than I knitted it up – the quality of this yarn is EXCEPTIONAL – I have purchased hand died and hand spun yarns over the past year several times on Etsy but the best quality I found at Fuzzyfibers. I am going to keep this scarf for myself
3) is a super soft Merino yarn with some Cashmere – I knitted it and before I sewed it together I twisted the fabric once – the stich used is also a twist stich. It looks really nice worn and has a great drape. I will give this to my mother.
4) is an other reddish scarf for my mom – she likes green and red it is made from 2 skeins of Madeline Tosh yarn held together and crochet with a large hook to give it a loopy look
5) is made from Debbie Bliss Baby Alpaca yarn – very soft and so airy. It is not going to weigh hair down if draped over the head.
Well and here are some fun little crochet items – I used Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton yarn it. They are already wrapped and on the way to my dear friend Carole.
If I ever make an other coin purse I will line the inside with fabric, to make it look more professional.
See you tomorrow with a paper craft posting
Thanks my dears
