Current news on my projects:
Top hats have been started - prototype 00 is a smallish purple velvet mini hat - I added ribbon, feathers and doodads on to it for a little flair. The next hat will be made NOT out of velvet. I find that the smaller the hat the harder the velvet wants to work at unraveling! I need to finish sizing and creating the correct hat in time for my tea party birthday!
After I complete these hats (because I know I'll keep messing up and having to make better ones) I have to finish a few Renn Faire outfits for my sister and her boyfriend. These should be easy enough.... except Maggie (my sister) has insisted that she wants to be a fairy and chose a Vogue pattern for her bodice. *Sigh* not my favorite patterns to work off of, but I'll do my best.
Now after this it is straight on crochet! I have birthdays and holidays to prepare for! I have a few new projects that I believe I will have to make my own pattern for, so look forward to seeing them on line. (after I present them that is... no wanting to spoil the surprise in case any of the friends are actually reading my blog ^_^ )
I have been collecting many yarns in preparation for the time for presents and have found so many local yarn shops that are just simply AMAZING!
These 2 sites are very fun. I bought some yarn from each store.
- I bought indigodragonfly yarn mostly because for the Joss Whedon theme. I bought 1 skein of Wash "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal". http://www.fabulousyarn.com/indigodragonfly-mcs-angst.shtml (well they no longer have Wash :( )
You can find more of indigodragonfly yarn on ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/people/indigodragonfly)
Then I also love - Hudson Valley Sheep & Wool Co. A real farm! full of nice people and fun sheep!
I picked up one small skein for a quick project made directly from the farm itself! Grown, sheered, spun and dyed!
Woah this became a huge post. I really can't wait till I have my own finished projects shown here!
