No knitting finishes but getting close on Odyssey. This is another Joji design. It uses Emma's DK yarn which is dyed here in Florida. Four Purls is a wonderful family affair with husband JD and wife Laura who are very active in the business. Two daughters Emma and Aspen doing the dyeing. They have about 4 or 5 yarn bases now and scrumptious colors. You can just see the Kale green 3rd color peaking thru the edge. This is not as mindless as it looks. There are big "eyelets" which are not easily seen in this photo that have presented some counting problems. It's getting really heavy now and I'm wanting to use it during our very short "shawl" season. Although DH is eyeballing this one, he keeps commenting how "manly" the color combination looks. Rich autumnal colors but yes may be construed as "manly". We may have to have joint custody of this one!
Starry Night Studio - I am very pleased with the finishing. I sent my own fabric and we chose the ribbon and cording colors together. I will definitely be using Alissa again.
Cottage on Cherry Creek Way . Devon also does lovely bags and charms etc and sells on Etsy under the Strawberry Lane shop. I have very little time for floss tube watching but I do try to pop in on Devon's a few others. I work full time and I try hard to stay off the Ipad when I get home so I can actually pick up a needle or two before my eyes give out.
I picked out this lovely batik fabric and it matched perfectly. This was a birthday gift for DF Carol R. She and I both share a love of stitching and tea and I knew she would love this design.
Well friends - I'm sorry I completely missed posting in October. That is one of my favorite months of the year. We haven't had much fall but November has been a little more seasonal and I am loving the cooler weather. Hopefully I'll be back soon with another post before Christmas. Until then - I hope your are all having a lovely fall with many happy stitches.
