Starting 2012 With A Creative Burst
After I finished my prototype of the Winter Hood last week, I was really excited to get started on the Snow Faerie version using my hand spun Winter Wonder art yarn. Then I added a wooly ruffle and long ties made from another of my art yarns, an extreme tail spun yarn done with Wensleydale lamb locks. It's super fluffy and so cute with all the little lamb curls popping out all over.
There are lamb locks spun into the Winter Wonder yarn too and I was delighted each time I saw them pop up as I knit the hood. I made sure to scoot every little pop of texture to the right side so I wouldn't lose any of those cute little curlicues.
I have also been working on a new wrist cuff, this one's almost finished...so close it's hard to walk away from it, but tomorrow's another day. And if that wasn't enough I am finishing a free form capelete I've knit/crocheted using a combination of my regular hand spun and my art yarns. I love free form and I always say I'm going to spend more time working on it...maybe this is the year!
I hope your 2012 is starting off with a creative burst of energy too! I'm excited to check out all the blogs this week, so many creative people and great projects to read about!
