I promised pictures...and pictures are what you shall have!!! Grab your purses and follow me to the BBG! (not at all related to the BBC)
To start off the Bountiful Blogging Gallery, we have our own Julie, modeling super cute socks that she knit using my handpainted, varigated "Sleepy Sunrise" merino sock yarn. Can we have a round of applause here?
Next, we're featuring my absolutely awesome rainbow handspun singles yarn (1 ply) using a Blue Faced Leicester (BFL...not AT ALL in association with any big f***ing losers...you and your dirty minds!) batt that I bought from the amazing Shell at Rose Garden Fibers. Not only is this yarn sinfully soft, but it's also self striping! A close up, as well, to REALLY see the colors.
Let us proceed on the journey through my BBG and focus on some sexy, red hot yarn that I call "Luscious Lips". These are only two skeins in a set of 4 that I will be spinning up....they'll probably be put into my store within the next month, unless my knitting friend, Ericka, decides to scoop it all up. I'll include a scarf pattern to go with the 4 skeins (which will all be slightly different, but using the same fiber in some part of the yarn) and cute beads, as well. The handpainted fiber is one (of many) that I bought from our own Lisa of Yarn Botanika. If only I could kidnap her....and her fibers!
Here, we stop to have a quick laugh at the humorous display in my BB Gallery. I created a Mini Magnet Garden using new Interweave refrigerator magnets I bought last night from Joanne's shop, A Knitter's Garden...once she gets her website set up, I can link her name up for you!
Last, but very certainly not least, I present to you...my wonderful audience...and dear knitting friends....
Yes, he is totally adorable. Yes, I created him using the Spin Off magazine "Estonian Hand Puppet" pattern that I saw in the latest, most interesting issue this year. And, oh, yes, I used only my own handspun yarn to make him....!!!!
The white is a merino/angora blend that I grabbed lustily from the NH Sheep and Wool and the purple/periwinkle is made of a bfl/tussah silk blend that I got as a gift from Lisa. Bless her heart!!!
He is SOOOO soft...oh, I wish you could feel him. He's like butt-ah.
Come close and give him a little kiss....mwwwah!
Thank you all for visiting my Bountiful Blogging Gallery and I wish you all a very good day...feel free to linger and feel a bit of greediness towards the new yarns...but, please, don't drool on the carpet : P
