I love that yarn! So beautiful and comfy!
Thanks! It's Lion Brand Amazing and Cascade Heritage Silk, if you were curious.
When I get rid of stuff, I like to think that the person who receives it is going to be thrilled about it, and what a nice thing that is to make someone else happy. If I wait until I'm dead to pass it on, I miss out on all those warm fuzzy feelings.
I forgot to take pictures earlier, but here is the little wallet I made for my DS (another Valentine's gift) out of some leather scraps (he's always stealing my wallet out of my purse, so I made him his own...this is my solution to whatever thing of mine he's filching - make him his own).
I saw this cute top
posted last week and had to have it, so I made my own from some stash fabric. I used just over a yard, I think. The fabric frayed like crazy, but French seams and facings for the armholes fixed that issue. I think I might add a ruffle to the bottom for a little extra length and weight...the fabric doesn't drape the way I imagined it would. My DS sat next to me while I did much of the sewing. He's two and obsessed with my sewing machine. He has his own antique children's sewing machine (missing some parts, like the needle) that he plays with while I use mine.
