anyone hear of magic mend? it's a blend of oils that help ease joint/muscle pain. serrrrriously amazing for my arthritic, twenty year old, knitting hands!

landscape, for a painter-friend of mine:

many different fibers went into this painting; local llama, local cormo, local merino, local shetland, mill end wool, mohair, and a bit of superwash wool.

the business of being born (I started naming my hats after the documentary I watched whilst knitting. is that weird?? har har, some of them are a little bizarre...)

this one is for a good friend of mine who lost her family (llamas, sheep, goats, horses, bunnies) due to a silly technicality. I want her to know, she is appreciated for being such a loving lady, so I knit her a hat with her very own llama fiber!

I just wish I were invincible so I could spin and knit a new creation each day. that would be glorious!

I love the colours and the look of the art yarn. The second hat is definitely my fav.

The yarn is fabulous and the hats are more! Pure beauty of crafting 

I love it here at the ice cream shop. In fact, this is gonna be my happy place. If I ever get molested or raped, this is the place I'm gonna think of to make everything all right Stewie Griffin

oh how exciting! when I first taught myself to spin, I spun nonstop for a month and was totally hooked. it wasn't long before I begged my friend to build me a spinning wheel ;-D I wish you tons of happiness!

Awesome hats! So sweet of you to make one for your friend in her time of need. 

I think my favorite is the landscape hat, but honestly, all of them are so colorful and the individual yarns/colors compliment each other well.  You really have an eye for this!  Smiley
