It is a crazy warm day here in Kansas City. We grilled hamburgers outside for lunch. Outside! In February! In Kansas City! Yay!
And now, I’m catching up on some fiber posting. I’ve been so involved in the Annie C Designs side of things lately, that Webster Fiber Arts has been a little neglected. But I am making things, and have made things, and now I am posting one of them. This is the Lacy Shell Wrap:
I love this wrap! The colors are so rich and lovely, and the wool/silk blend feels wonderful. I used a meshy stitch for this wrap, and added some shells to give it a bit more heft.
This wrap is available now! See more photos and purchase this piece in my Etsy shop.
Until next time,
So, that whole “I’m starting to feel lousy” thing from last week? It was a cold. An energy sucking, head congesting, feeling gross cold. I do feel better now, though I am still doing a little coughing and sniffling.
And now comes the catching up. I have a couple of new pieces to show you today. I used yarn that I hand-dyed for both of these cowls. Both are a mottled gray, teal, and purple kettle dyed yarns, but I used different amounts of dye to get different intensities of color.
First is the Light Side of Gray Cowl:
This is a short cowl that I worked in an open, airy stitch, but the yarn is a bulky, wool roving. You can see more photos and purchase the Light Side of Gray Cowl in my Etsy shop.
The second piece is longer and darker. This is the Dark Side of Gray Cowl:
I used a variety of stitches in this one. I love how the little flecks of teal pop out against the dark gray and purple. You can see more photos of this one and purchase it in my Etsy shop.
Until next time,
