It took two intense weeks, but the new unique hooded cardigan is ready!!!
Made of recycled mixed wool and quality acrylic yarns (only the recycling took 5 days!!!) in all the shades of the rainbow using many different crochet doily patterns: octagons, hexagons, circles, flowers, multistitch rainbow stripes for the back and shaped crochet netting... Optically slimming fit given by the special back design.








Now I need some weeks of simply projects, this coat was about to kill me!  Grin

This is crazy--in the best possible way, which, I think, is the HIGHEST compliment!
It's so much fun to look at! It must be a blast to wear!

Very, very cool <3

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Couldn't even guess what it was from the thumbnail, but was drawn to the colors and the effects they made. You do the most amazing things with colors!

I had to chime in and profess my new found love of your work. This coat is incredible and your other work is equally awe-inspiring!  What kind of yarn do you use for your projects? They are so vibrant!
Thank you for making such fabulous work and sharing it Cheesy

Thank You!  Kiss For this coat I used recycled yarns (my new fetish), but I also work with vintage yarns, finds from second hand shops, markets and shops from all around Europe. I don't mind about brands or fiber content, looking only for the colors!
