Here are skeins of Icelandic, Lopi and Brown Sheep wool from Amybel. Amanda and I had communicated and I knew the package was coming but I had no idea she was sending so much wool. I was almost jumping up and down when I opened the box. I love it, love it, love it !!! I don't know what I have planned but it will be something cute. I may do some type of accessory. We'll see.
By the way, Amybel/Amanda is the wonderful creator of the Braded Cable Handle Tote (Rav Link). One hundred and forty six people have made this tote (so far). The tote is a free pattern and I really am going to make it one day. That is, after I get over my fear of felting. I will share that tale with you another day. So again, thanks so much Amybel !!!
This is a Fiddlesticks packet of the Peacock Feather Shawl Gale had sent to my home. I am so impressed at the professionalism of how the pattern is put together. There were 12 pages listing Fiddlesticks products alone and the front page with the photo of the shawl. All pages were printed in color, even the sales receipt/shipping page. The pattern itself is double sided and on legal size paper. All of this is packed neatly in a plastic holder which is binder ready. Wow.
Here is a close up of the Fiddlesticks Peacock Feathers and here is Gale's link to her Peacock Feathers shawl. Make sure you scroll all the way down when looking at this post, you need to see ALL photos of how wonderful her shawl is.
It's an amazingly beautiful pattern and Gale tells me; "It really isn't a difficult pattern Carolyn" or something like that. If I were going to label people shawl-wise, I would label Gale as a professionally-high-leveled-lace-knitting-shawl person. I'm just saying. So, when she tells me this I kind of laugh but on the other hand perhaps it's true. Perhaps I can make this shawl. By the way, Gale is working on her second Peacock. I will try this year to make this shawl. So, Thank you Gale for the vote of confidence !
Thanks Consuelo !!!
I have completed my Baktus. I have to block it and it's ready to be shipped off to my Aunt Alma in Detroit. Hopefully I will post photos soon.
