Wedding Season is Upon Us!

Just in time for Wedding Season: Spring Bling and a new beaded shawl pattern!

"Thamarai" is knit in one piece, from the center-out and features shimmering glass bead accents and gorgeous hand-dyed 100% silk yarn from Textiles A Mano.  


The shine and luster of the yarn and the beads are a perfect match--and the drape is amazing!


Add to that, my "Shotgun Wedding" necklace which features hand-dyed silk, vintage crystals and button and a shining brass bullet casing--what more could a bride wish for (except her happily-ever-after I suppose)!

Tempted by the Skein of Another!

Have you ever been tempted by a beautiful yarn?  So tempted that you just had to get it onto your needles right away--pushing aside all of the other WIP's in your life?  


Thus was the case of this beautiful yarn from Fly Designs.  The deeply colorful and amazingly soft Merino Cashmere DK that made up this simple Tee-style sweater was all the inspiration I needed for its design!
