Thank you so much for your interest in the needle felting giveaway. I am so thrilled that you seemed excited about learning something new. I wish I could have sent you all a kit but alas I am not that wealthy. So here is to Christy of LilBitBrit. You are the winner! Christy I have sent you an email asking for your address, please send it to me as soon as you can so I can pop this in the post to you.
My gorgeous BIL Don Sparks is not only a fabulous BIL, he is also a very gifted actor. He is on the PBS American Experience show tonight called The Poisoner's Handbook. It airs at 8:00 pm here, and I believe that will be the same all over the US, but check your local listings and be sure to watch. He went to Prague last year to film this, I can't wait to see him.
And last but not least my first finish of the 2014 year is my last Elise Shawl. I swear I am done with this pattern after making 6 of these. This one is for a darling young woman who works with my husband. She has been very helpful of late and I think she needed a thank you for being so amazing. She has the most brilliant blue eyes. I think this will work well with her eyes and fair coloring.
Made with The Fiber Seed, Sprout and a size J hook. Steam blocked as I have a tendency to do, 450 yards used. Good-bye for now Elise Shawls, you have been fun, but now I am done.
This was made with stash yarn, a Christmas present from last year. As you can see over on the left side of my blog I have two new colorful buttons. I am joining in with Linda for her Stash-Busting for Stashaholics and her Stash-Busting Link Party. I have acquired a lot of stash of late. Well with my local yarn shop going out of busniess and having an epic sale can you blame me? So it is yarn diet time for me and shopping only from stash for the near future. So far I have gone 10 days without buying yarn, can you tell I have a problem?
