You could do a cowl (maybe ) with the bulky handspun, it looks great!
Maybe for a doll. The size of the picture is deceiving, there's less than 1 ounce of yarn there.

I am really starting to love the way it takes dye. Does anyone have pictures of marr haven knit into longies?

Re: Sunday Wooly Sunday ...

that was me (I think) I saw them too!

I think lavender.. I was going to have her wear a lavender shirt which is why I thought mustard, but maybe I'll do an orange shirt?

anyway, it's a beautiful sweater,

Lavendar would look pretty.

Re: Sunday Wooly Sunday ...

Hi guys.


I can't wait to see your yarn, Lauren.




I am dragging. Need some diet coke but we're all out.

I'm being very very bad this week and not working on the custom I'm supposed to be working on.

I keep working on E's linen stitch longies and even started some new monster prototype longies for E last night too!

And today, I want to try a sock out of Cestari fine... so I am WAY off track. And loving it.

I WANT SOME DIET COKE!

Here are some of the yarns I have been dyeing. This is my first time dyeing on Marr Haven, I didn't like it at first but it is starting to grow on me.



Pretty yarns! I really want to try some marr Haven one of these days, I love the texure.

Definitely Lavender.

That yarn is stunning, maddy!

We're going to the Chinese New Year parade today. We normally drive to downtown but today, we'll take Metro because Till loves riding the "tain! tain!". I will take my shrug to work on. I'm loving the yarn but this thing is going to be the death of me. It's taking for.ever.
