Another Kit Together And Ready!

This week I soft spun some really extra BIG and chunky alpaca and Babydoll sheep wool. This was spun for the wIld aNd CrAzY neck warmer pattern in previous post. The yarn is really soft because it is spun from Betty my white suri alpaca, Monty My brown Huacaya alpaca and Jelly Bean my darkest gray Babydoll sheep! Spun loose putting little twist to keep it extra soft. The colors mix so well together, as nature intended. The kit comes with the pattern and the beautiful branch button which has the bark and has been treated with an oil to finish it. I love the neck warmer which is also for-sale and will be in the shop. I have a few kits available at this time and one already knitted neck warmer. They will all go into the shop today or as always I can ship them to you. Cost of kit with pattern and handmade button is 24.00' if shipped 4.90 shipping priority.

HUG me!

A real favorite! This my Hug Me wrap. Another easy to wear to take the chill away piece. It doesn't get in the way when sitting at your desk or working around the home. When sitting on the couch it just hugs you and keeps you warm. Easy to knit, its knitted in the round with a few decreases, and knit and purl stitches. I knitted this with smaller skeins from all the alpacas, sheep and llamas! I love it because all my animals are hugging me. They can give you a warm hug too! Pattern available with the purchase of yarn to make this wonderful little wrap. All natural, as nature intended it. Love it!

What is better then a nice warm hug on a chilly day?

New BIG handspuns

Today I dyed and extra BIG handspun yarn with the idea to sell it and offer the caplet pattern shown below. This would make a beautiful caplet I'm trying really hard not to ball it up and start if for myself. But if you saw all the hand knit garments that I have knitted in recent years you would say OFFER it in the shop. I also spun up a BIG skein of the 3-way alpaca, babydoll swirl yarn, all natural and extra soft! The colors in it are dark chocolate brown, steel gray and white all swirled together. I'm offering the WiLd and CrAzY neckwarmer pattern with this yarn and a beautiful handmade wooden branch button. I'm going to be spinning this BIG to offer along with the caplet pattern as well. Our shop we be filled to the brim (like its not already) for our holiday Open House November 27Th and 28Th. Hope to see you then or before. Closed this Sunday do to a Sheep and Wool Festival I'm attending. But OPEN SATURDAY for a couple hours, for your knitting needs! 12 noon until 2PM
