Yesterday this lovely ball of yarn was waiting for me when I got home from work - it's sock-yarn inspired by the colours of Van Gogh's painting, Bedroom in Arles (you can see it on the yarn label) - I couldn't resist the concept of a pair of handknitted socks with such a fabulous colour palette from one of the great masters!
No rush with this project though - I know exactly how long it takes to make a pair - a VERY long time!! (especially with size 2.5 mm needles - a bit ambitious I know!)
. . . on the tweedie front, I whipped up this mini patchwork cushion this week . . .
Sometimes it's nice just to make something very simple - I think the beautiful tweeds speak for themselves, I just had to sew them together, no further embellishment required! I do love the colours though :) It's in the shop here.
I'm taking a relaxed approach to tweedie-business at the moment, popping items into my shop when I can, and trying to sneak a little personal crafting in too - my plans to make Christmas gifts is running a little late to say the least - perhaps I'll manage one or two yet :)
How's your Christmas list going - faster than mine I bet!
Off to have a cuppa and a little peek at my new yarn - just looking . . . . honest, hehe!!! I do like a little drool over my crafting supplies from time to time :)
I'll keep you posted on any new items I pop into the shop - I have a few more ideas for 'tweedie' creations to make (and some to finish - ooops!) :)
Have a lovely weekend :)
