Here is a sneak peek at some of the cute, locally harvested, hand felted sparkly acorns that Nikki will have at her upcoming show on the weekend in Kelowna at Prospera Place November 23rd & 24th as well as LOTS of other fabulously unique and hand felted items!
The acorns are available 4 in a pack for $5.00 or 8 (which is 2 packs) for $9.00
I apologize in advance if this post seems rather lengthy, picture-wise, it is a HUGE skein (comprised of about 10 art batts!) that I made doing demonstrations at my local Fall Fair.
I'm all for promoting happy sheep, and wool, and spinning, and knitting, and ...
well, you get the idea ...
So I started by making some cRAzY fun art batts on my Wild Carder thinking that I would spin up one or two at a time but I was having so much fun and getting asked so many questions that I just kept adding batt after batt until ... voila!
Just had to share this delicious coloured roving with you! It's by my amazing friend Ky who has a spectacular eye for colour and I love how she blends it in her rovings and her plied handspun - I'll be honest ... I covet a LOT of her yarns!
Isn't it yummy!
I haven't yet decided in what way I would like to create with this one yet and I don't think I have finished enjoying it's colour and beauty as a roving just yet.
But I did want to share it all with you so that you can admire the amazingness of Ky too!
Just thought I would share a WIP (Work in Progress) that I have been playing around with today ... it's some of my hand dyed and handspun chunky yarn that I thought might be the beginnings of a bohemian-style scarf ... so far we have some HUGE palm sized crochet flowers!
Crocheted on a US17 - 12mm hook - they were super fun to do! Itching to add more to this when I get home - maybe some art yarn, ooh! and sari yarn and some tassels perhaps? ;)
Man I love handspun!!
Hoping all your adventures are fun-filled and creative this weekend!
A while back I was reminiscing about when we were kids and thinking about all the crazy candy that we used to absolutely gorge ourselves on when we were kids and were handed a pocket full of change to run to the local grocery store and fill up a wee brown paper bag with ...
We could use up every single penny and the bright colours of all the sugary confections in the bag were a delight to the eyes and a tummy ache just waiting to happen!
This fluffy, colurful, sugary pink and sour apple green yarn is my homage to all those sweet childhood moments ;)
