Pinned!




I just completed a batch of shawl pins for my LYS featuring copper, beads and various charms.  Among my favorites are the ones which feature pendants that were hand-crafted by Candace Wilson of One of a Kind Buttons.   Candace's passion for color and texture is evident in every single piece she creates.  She offers a huge variety of shapes, sizes and colors guaranteed to enchant and delight!

 Made from terracotta or white clay, Candace creates each button from molds forged from her own drawings and fires them twice with 1-3 coats of glaze on them.   
No two buttons/pendants are truly alike.

Check out Candace's website here:  http://www.oneofakindbuttons.com/

...And Beyond!

New Shawl Pattern Hot Off The Needles!


Simple shaping and a touch of texture give grace and movement to this simple crescent-shaped shawl which was made to showcase the beautiful hand-dyed yarns of Infinite Twist.




I was given the opportunity to work with Cate Carter-Evans, the color wizard behind Infinite Twist yarns for this shawl and I must say that I am hooked on "Helix"!

 Helix is loaded with delicious color and soft, springy texture.  Get your hands on this good-stuff here:  www.infinitetwist.com

"Spectrum"
Florence + The Machine
When we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
We were light and paper thin

And when we first came here
we were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
'Til we let the spectrum in

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

And when we come for you
We'll be dressed up all in blue
With the ocean in our arms
Kiss your eyes and kiss your palms

And when it's time to pray
We'll be dressed up all in grey
With metal on our tongues
And silver in our lungs

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

And when we come back we'll be dressed in black
And you'll scream my name aloud
And we won't eat and we won't sleep
We'll drag bodies from a ground

So say my name
And every color illuminates
And we are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
We are shining
Say my name
Say my name
And we will never be afraid again
