Wool jewelry and rainbow colors

We had such a wonderful time at the craft fair, it was terrific, and we will be attending again next time for sure!

 

People were very cheerful, and we met quite a few fellow handspinners and crocheters, it was so lovely chatting with them. One lady purchased a handspun yarn shortly before the fair closed for the night, and she returned with a most beautiful finished crochet scarf the very next morning. “I couldn´t wait, I just had to get my crochet hook out and work with that yarn while watching Harry Potter on TV” she said. She then went and also bought one of the 100m-project crochet hats I had made with the same yarn size and colourway. Dont these colors look fabulous on her?

 

 

I finished some new felt necklaces in rich rainbow shades, and there are also brown and gray versions in stock now embellished with shiny silk! They are displayed in my etsy store StoneCircleWools.

 

 

And there will be more hand dyed rovings, curly fleece and handspun yarns for my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers soon, please bear with me while I restock the yarns and fibers.

Everyone have a fantastic month of November. Keep it colorful!!

Easter scarf and heather locks

Easter is set quite early this year, and according to the weather forecast it will be a little chilly over the holidays. As we will be doing our traditional easter egg hunt with the children and also go for a nice easter walk through the open fields I prepared myself a bit and made a cosy 4-button scarf from my handspun merino heavy worsted/bulky weight yarn. I used a ribbed pattern to make the scarf elastic and finished it with 1 skein of 115 yards and 4 wooden buttons. I think it came out beautifully, I love the colourway. This baby will keep me warm for sure :o).  It will also be displayed in my online exhibition. Yay, a new piece of woolly loveliness!

And as you can see I also painted some more bluefaced leicester curly fleece in very pretty earthy heather shades.

Everyone, have a lovely and peaceful Easter weekend.
