Hello! 🙂 I’ve been busy…just couldn’t resist whipping up one more Winter Whimsy, and this time it’s just for ME!
There was this really pretty bamboo spun yarn tucked in my stash that I received during the Package in the Post Christmas gift exchange through the Chat Clique and it was absolutely calling my name. It said, “Beeeeeethanyyyyyy… I’m suuuper sooooft! Make me into a Whiiiiiiimssyyyyyyy!”
So, of course I obliged, lol!
Here it is all laid out in it’s pink and green glory. I just love the colors, don’t you? There’s something about this very mix of hues that remind me of a rose or wildflower garden, and I just want to have them around me. It makes me feel very pink and pretty indeed, to be able to wear something in this color! 🙂 …and oh, so soft! The yarn was right…it was meant to be a Whimsy, lol.
The buttons I found at the Shibori Dragon…a delicious yarn and fabric store that I am lucky enough to have nearby. These buttons were amongst the many tubes of pretties, just waiting to be picked for this project.
Of course, I picked a few extras, just in case I needed them in the future and to help fill out my growing button stash. 😉
Just in case you want to know what this little pretty looks like on… here ya’ go!
I wanted to show you how nice the Whimsy looks with my Heather Rose Wristers, too. More pink is just blooming all around, lol. It seems I don’t wear one without the other since the Whimsy came off the loom!
Well…unless I’m using the Whimsy as a Muff, with my hands tucked toasty warm inside. It’s like having a little blanket just for my hands, a definite plus for someone who always has absolutely frigid fingers. 🙂
As for the little order that I spoke of in the last post… you remember… the one about the sock yarn from Simply Socks?? Well, it came today! Notice a bit of a repeat of the pink theme?? I’m very much looking forward to looming up something good with them. I’ve got that giant loomy sock book that needs some attention, lol. After having knit two of the samples for this book, I know first hand that the designs are simply fabulous! I just have to decide which of them would go with what yarn…hmmmm. It’s a very nice thing to ponder though, isn’t it? 😉
Hope you’re having a stupendous week!
