Here is my 100th post. As I mentioned previously, I have something for you because it is a milestone. But first, I want to show you the shrug that I mentioned I was working on.
I found the pattern on Etsy.com from Rensfiberart and received it by email which was really great as I didn't have to wait for it to arrive.
The yarn is from yarnmarket.com it is a cotton blend of 50% cotton, 45% viscose and 5% silk in a very pretty sage combination. I can't call this a ombre colorway or a varigated colorway either as 2 strands are a lighter sage and 2 strands are more of a silver sage. the 4 strands are twisted together to give a heather appearance when worked.
The shrug pattern worked up very easily but of course, I couldn't just leave it alone. I made the sleeves longer and so had to adjust the body area as well. I have been wearing it at work for the last several days and it has helped with the when the air conditioner is on.
Some time ago, I bought a shuttle on ebay. from a gentleman located in eastern europe. I like to support new artists and since I prefer bobbin shuttles I thought I would give this a try.
It is very nicely constructed and came in it's own handmade box,
It is too big to be comfortable in my hand. I have tatted with it, but keep running into my left hand. So I am going to give this away to a random commenter to this post.
You will receive everything you see here. The shuttle, with hook protector, the handmade box, a small screwdriver and a bobbin winder ( the small dowel).
I will draw for the winner after the 15th of September 2009.
