A Whole Mess of New Pieces

Edge of Winter Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I’ve added several new pieces to my Etsy shop over the past week or so. Let’s take a look!

First up is the Edge of Winter Scarf:

Edge of Winter is a long, striped scarf that I crocheted with Lion Brand Landscapes yarn. I love this yarn so, so much. I like the fall-ish brown, green, gold, and maroon in this yarn. The light blue and purple shades remind me that winter is on the way. You can see more photos and purchase this scarf here.

Another piece with a wintery feel is the Frosted Shawl:

The blues, browns, greens, and purples in this yarn are accented with little tufts of white throughout, which I think gives the fiber a frosted look. This is a wide shawl that doesn’t sit too far down on the back. This shawl is available in my Etsy shop.

Globes of Color is a vibrant, jewel-toned rainbow cowl:

This is a thick piece with a bit of heft. I like how the gold bobbles pop on this piece. See more pictures and purchase this one here.

The Gold & Gray Infinity Scarf is next:

I crocheted this one with a stitch that gives it a knit look, then added a loopy little edging. I like the diagonal stripe of gray in this yarn. This piece is available in my Etsy shop.

Finally, I have The Best Spread Cowl:

The yarn for this cowl is some that I had left over after making Mike a big Jabba the Hutt amigurumi earlier in the year, though this cowl doesn’t resemble Jabba much at all. This one is also available in my Etsy shop.

Until next time,

Two New Handmade Pieces

Forest Flutter Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I have two new pieces for you today! The first is this scarf, called Forest Flutter:

I got this yarn because I thought it was called “Ozark Forest.” I spent my youth in the Ozarks, so it seemed like it was meant to be. When the yarn arrived, I discovered it was called “Ozarka Forest.” Not quite the same, but still a very pretty, earthy yarn. I crocheted lots of ruffles and frills into this one to make it full and fluffy.

My other piece is the Recovery Shawl:

I love the colors in this yarn. It reminds me of the couch my grandparents had when I was little, though this yarn is much more vibrant and pretty. I worked on this one while my mom was recovering from knee replacement surgery this summer, which is where the name comes from.

Both pieces are available in my Etsy shop.

Until next time,
Annie

New Piece: I Hope Shirley Approves Shawl

I Hope Shirley Approves Shawl | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I really love this shawl! Like really love it. This is I Hope Shirley Approves:

I Hope Shirley Approves Handmade Shawl | Webster Fiber Arts | Etsy

Who is Shirley you ask? Well, I don’t know Shirley. She appears to be the mother of Stephanie, who is the yarn dyer behind The Hen House in Texas. I picked up this yarn at the Overland Park Quilt Show last year, where The Hen House was selling their wares (they had a huge booth with tons of yarn, patterns, kits, and quilting things, too). My favorite was this multi-colored yarn, sort of a muted rainbow of colors, called “Shirley’s Favorite.” Knowing this was Shirley’s favorite put the pressure on to make something nice—I always want to do the yarn justice when I make pieces, but this time, it was serious.

I created a granny shawl with the yarn because I love granny shawls and the skein had enough yards to make a good sized one. This piece is 54 inches across from tip to tip, which means you can wear it over your shoulders or around your neck bandana-style. I added a little picot edging down the sides of the triangle to finish off the piece.

And since this is Shirley’s favorite yarn, I thought I would keep her in the name of the shawl. I hope she would approve.

Until next time,

New Piece: Sunrise, Sunset Shawl

Sunrise, Sunset Shawl | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I don’t mind telling you, this shawl took FOREVER to make. There are a lot of little stitches here!

New Piece: Sunrise, Sunset Shawl | Webster Fiber Arts

This piece is the Sunrise, Sunset Shawl. It is based on the “Sunset Shawlette” by Tamara Kelly at Moogly. I used a yarn color called “Sunrise” to make it. Sometimes the titles pretty much write themselves.
