my very first scarf made with handspun wool (not spun by me). which has got me addicted to handspun. so soft and cushy and pretty.  its about 4 feet long.

close up for colour details.

this is base off a scarf i saw on knitty. its a chain, but i felt the need to experiment with koolaid dying, and ended up with this yarn, that i adore (happy icy blues and green) so i just used it.  the scarf is the longest thing i have made, its about 5 feet and 9 or 10 inches long. longer than i am tall. its not the warmest, due to the giant hole design, but i can wrap it round my neck 15 or so times, and then its nice and toasty.

close up detail shot.

one skirt, on my small person. it was a failed hat attempt, and then i realised that it would fit her perfectly as skirt.  its almost too short these days, but now she wants to wear it like a tube top.

one crocheted hat, with ears, done in super bulky wool, modeled by the small person.  you can only see one ear, but i assure ya'll that there are two. made this for me, my first hat that actually worked. but my small person loves it, so she tends to wear it more than me.

living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.

I really love your kool-aid dye job, so pretty.  And your daughter is gorgeous!
