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!
I love the colors they are my favorite and it looks great on you.
The buttons are fab. I do have to find my button box I have a ton of them and can’t find the container, been collecting for years.
The new yarn love it lol love pink and pink blends.
Hurt my hand not able to loom and hard to type so I stop now but you did great as always.
Oh that turned out so pretty…I LOVE it!!!!!
Love those colors! Sort of reminds me of Monet’s Garden at Giverny paintings….just beautiful
Fantastic! I love it
Love the colors of your whimsy! Absolutely perfect!
Sorry I was not able to do the lal for this. I still have the pattern and supplies and do intend to knit it up. We lost my FIL on the 31st and after the funeral week of family gatherings, every weekend has been spent closing up the apartment and sorting through everthing with family etc.
So, mine will come along sometime soon or at least in a few weeks. I think this is an amazing versitile pattern!
Thank you for sharing it with us. I’ve saved all the notes!!
Spectacular model showing us the finished product!!;) Oh-just saw the matching half gloves! Perfect!
Will be stitching and ttys

Hello Stephanie! 🙂
Here’s a great tutorial on how to stitch buttons onto knits…the sample uses thread, but you can do the same procedure with your yarn as well. 😉 http://www.craftstylish.com/item/3854/sew-buttons-securely-on-hand-knits

I’m so happy to hear that you’ve made one for yourself! I’d love to see how it turns out. 🙂
Happy Looming! Bethany~
