Song of the Sea

Hello Everyone!

I started this one on a whim, mostly because I was bored and I had some Galileo yarn sitting near me. I love working this yarn and I have several ongoing projects in various colorways using it. Here’s my progress in the last week or so.

It’s done! This hat took a lot of quality time to finish and I’m really happy with it! Here are the just finished and blocking pics. 🙂

I tried to rotate this one, but it wouldn’t. So I leave it! 🙂

Crochet Doily Needle Art

The Story Of A Doily

My grandmother Ruth taught me to crochet around about 2007. I started with granny squares and then put it down for a few years. Then I met Julia. She strongly encouraged my proclivity for needle work. Now I knit and crochet as an extreme pastime. I have LOTS of projects going. There are some special exceptions to the general pile of projects. One of them was this completed project.

Alfajor Hat

Awesome looking hat pattern by Lisa R. Myers. I’m making this one with Wanton Fibers hand dyed baby camel and silk (50%/50%). Very soft and warm and a wonder to knit with. I’ll write more as I have more to show 😉

A new Fir Trees Cowl project start

The pattern was designed by Marly Bird (Ravelry: http://goo.gl/DyqIAI, and Bijou Basin: http://goo.gl/MsU06X). I’m using a custom dyed 100% Tencel yarn by Prisim of St Petersburg, FL (http://prisimyarn.com). I have several projects using this pattern, and I love them all so far. But this yarn handles the best. It’s also VERY soft.

Babetta’s Yarn is where I got the Tencel. First time I walked into the store. My eyes made a b-line for it. I was visiting for the first time with Julia on my birthday. Little did I know Julia had a surprise for me and I suddenly had a cool present! Store credit! More on that story and what came of it in another post. 😉
