Now I would like to show you the finished Nightshift shawl that one of my german customers made with the yarns I custom spun for her. She kindly sent me some photos (vielen Dank Silke!!) – the shawl is absolutely stunning and so rich in color, have a look:
The pattern for the nightshift shawl can be found on Ravelry (see my blog entry from March 7th), it was created by Andrea Mowry. The yarns and yardage for the shawl are available in various colourways by custom order but I sometimes also have the corresponding yarn sizes available in my etsy store.
Everyone have a wonderful spring season, and Happy Crafting!! :o)
Now in stock in my etsy store, have a look:
So the craft fair is drawing nearer, and most of the yarns are spun, painted, labeled and boxed. I am still fiddling with the textile labels I have to sew into my wool hats and scarves, it is time consuming, and I don´t like sewing very much.
I have not been neglecting my etsy store :o) There are now fresh yarns, rovings and batts listed, have a look:
I also painted a new batch of extra soft british bluefaced leicester curly fleece for my dollmakers in a beautiful honey blonde shade. One of my customers sent me some photos of one of her miniature dolls, for which she used my painted reddish brown fleece. This little doll is truly adorable:
Such a cutie!
Everyone have a wonderful autumn season and Happy Crafting!
