It's finished! Here's the raw photo's of the maternity sweater I just knit as an Alchemy for a gal on Etsy. She sent the yarn, pattern, and measurements; I modified the pattern to fit her and knit the yarn and crocheted the edging.

Things have been bustling around here! I received the first scarf order of the season, a navy and white number! I'm also possibly getting a contract to make scarves as a fundraiser for the high school band. They will have the school initials in double jaquard on one end of a solid color scarf. I'm pretty excited about it!

My big project right now is a maternity sweater I was commissioned to make. The mom sent me the yarn, and I am nearing completion. Here is a pic of one sleeve. The body is a deep purple chenille like yarn with a metallic thread in it, and the edging is a violet, lavender, and silver ribbon yarn. It is really pretty.

I LUV Etsy Swap! I recently participated in the Etsy Swap ( The person I created for loved gardening, natural materials, and has 4 children, so I created this monogrammed knit throw pillow in natural cotton for her, and hand painted on the dyes.

I received a couple of skeins of hand spun yarn from Hobbledehoy similar to this:, plus a couple of her button pins with flowers on them.

It was a fun experience, and I got to try out the filet-knit technique!

I just got a HUGE shipment of DK weight New Zealand wool yarn, and am putting the first dye efforts up on now. More to come, so check back often. I will also do custom orders!

For the Fourth of July I made up this purse and headband. They are for sale at Etsy. Those of you watching this space for Ebay collectibles sales, I think I am going to take a break from that and start again in September. It is too much to juggle that and all the summer activities.
