I am delighted to offer a few items from Fringe Supply Co. in the shop at Make.Do!
First up is the delightful YARN PYRAMID, an 11x22 two-color letterpress poster designed and printed in California. It's ready to frame! I love it all by itself, too (it's on heavy cardstock - not flimsy!).
TOTE BAG "I Make therefore I Am" "Wool is an Essential Part of any High-Fiber Diet"
The tote bags are FABULOUS! Made of heavy canvas with sturdy straps, they're durable and roomy to tote whatever you're toting!
A lot's been going on around here, including my daughter getting married this weekend!!
Meanwhile, I am delighted to have recently shipped my first order of Make.Do BE Fingering/Sock, REALIZE Sport, and REALIZE Worsted to The Village Knitter in Babylon, NY!
Among the colors are this dusty blue that I love more and more. It's Celeste Polvere on BE Fingering/Sock.
And here it is on REALIZE Worsted.
I didn't want to say "goodbye" to this one, so that's what I called it... I Don't Want to Say Goodbye on BE Fingering/Sock.
And a few more.
How Dark The Night in all three bases -- BE Fingering/Sock, REALIZE Sport, and REALIZE Worsted. Cara used REALIZE Sport for her Celestarium, and I'll soon be dyeing for the Southern Skies on her radar!
So, the dye pots are idle while I'm off to celebrate a wedding!! I'll be working again soon. Stay tuned!!
Did you know that Craftsy offers different types of classes? And that some of them are even FREE? It's a great way to try out the online learning platform!
Two amazing free Craftsy mini-course offerings for knitters are:
1. Know Your Wool by Deborah Robson: Do you wonder where your yarn comes from? Learn about different types of wool and the individual characteristics of each.
2. Short Rows by Carol Feller: Don't fall short because you find short rows intimidating! Learn four different techniques to creating short rows, and discover how they can make shaping a knitted garment a snap.
My friend Carole wanted some yarn to (finally) knit a Color Affection for herself. She said that she wanted colors that reminded her of the beach, when I asked if there were any colors in mind, and sent me the link to a photo in her Flickr stream.
Custom work isn't always easy, but I think they turned out pretty good, if I may say. I will give a little credit to my husband for that! I may live in the midwest, but I'm no stranger to the ocean -- I've been surrounded by it in one form or another for the past 25 years! He grew up on Southern California beaches, we were married on the coast of Oregon, and he's painted the ocean untold times over the past 20+ years -- most of those years in an at-home studio -- and his business is called Oceans and Dreams!
