~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

I am located in the United States, and I have a really fluffy dog, and a cat who likes to jump on whatever I'm working on.

~ I am open to custom orders! PM me! ~

Handdyed Spinning Fiber!

Lagoon. 2 oz. Columbia/Dorset 100% wool top. It's a relatiely inexpensive wool, so it's not as soft as some others, but it is definitely soft enough to spin, and should also felt well. I threw this together with some leftover bits of dye, and I'm thrilled with how it came out! Two points.

Blueberry Guts. 2 oz. squishy Merino top. There is oe more available. This one didn't fluff up as much as the others did after dyeing, but it will puff up when you draft it! Two points.

Box of Crayons. 3 oz. Columbia/Dorset 100% wool top. There are six colors in the pack, and you get roughly 1/2 oz. of each. Only one pack left! It's a relatiely inexpensive wool, so it's not as soft as some others, but it is definitely soft enough to spin, and should also felt well. Use this to enhance your color palette for needle felting or wet felting, or just spin it into rainbow yarn! The blue and purple separated out, just because those dyes like to do that, but when you draft the fibers (pull them apart to loosen them up) that will blend up a lot. Three points.
- Pulled from the shop.

Evergreen Headband. Hand-knit arrowhead lace, from delicate Rowan wool yarn with tweedy bits. Approximately 17 inches in length by 2 inches wide, with 10.5 inch ties (lots of stretch, so it'll adjust to fit most any adult head, and probably teens as well.) Care instructions: hand wash in cold water and either lay flat to dry or pin it to a flat surface under some tension to show off the lace ("blocking.") Three points.

Hand-Dyed Yarn! Dyed by me with food coloring and possibly some kool-aid.

Really Old Candy Cane (on the left in the photo). 100% wool (Paton's Classic Merino), 100 grams, 223 yards. 4''=20 stitches on size 7 needles. This yarn will self-stripe with some subtle watercolor variation in the colors. Two points.

Handspun Yarn! Coming soon.

Oddments Button Bobby Pins. I was going to make these mismatched bobby pins and have them claimed individually, but in the end I liked the pairs I was able to put together. Choose from royal purple, earth tones or zebra. These are vintage buttons glued securely onto the standard heavy bobby pin finding. They are thicker and stronger than the standard hide-in-your-hair type of bobby pin. One-half point per pair.

Magic Hat Pins. The funkiest treasures from my bead stash on super-long stick pins - 8 inches long by default. However, I can make them as short as you like. The 8-inch pins will have a nailhead at the end, but if I shorten them I will make an eyelet stopper. See Tomato Teal as an example. One half point each.

From left to right: Stargate, Blue Swoopy, Starky, Tomato Teal, Icing, Verdant, Sceptre, Fade, and Bloopy. PM me for better pics of any of them.

Ladybug Anklet. Sterling-plated chain, wire wrapping, and lobster clasp, with glass beads. Adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Custom sizing (and conversion into a bracelet) available upon request. One point.

Junk Food Earrings. Acrylic charms on chunky silver-plated chain with sterling french hook earwires. Choose from pizza/cokes and hamburger/french fries. One point each.

Jean Blue Button Bracelets in two sizes. Though they are each adjustable, one is sized and proportioned for a 5-6 inch wrist (modeled on my 5-inch wrist), and the other for a 7-8 inch wrist (modeled on my mineral water). The bracelets feature vintage buttons attached to a silver-plated chain with silver-plated wire wrapping and a silver springring clasp. The buttons may look black in some of the pictures, but the only colors involved are denim blue, cobalt blue, navy blue, and white. 1/2 point.



Araucania Quellon Yarn. A brilliantly soft viscose rayon and cotton chenille yarn. 161 yards per big 100 gram skein. Colorway #2, with varigated peach tones. The second photo is pretty true to color, but I left the first photo up so you can see the subtle varigations in the yarn. I have two extra skeins, but note that they have already been wound into balls. Also, this yarn has no dye lots. The two skeins I have should be pretty close to each other, but alternate balls to minimize striping if you want to use both on one project (no need to break the yarn, just carry it at the edge.) I made the ruffled collar from No Sheep For You from one skein with plenty left over. One skein would be enough for an ascot, two for a scarf. Two points per skein.

Thanks for visiting!

COMING SOMEDAY: Copper Cascade earring line, more handspun yarn, more handdyed yarn, designer ribbon headbands, and wine charms.

Wishlist: Tiny realistic polymer clay avocado charms, stenciled shirts, Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat (crocheted pattern found on Craftster).

Starting points: 9

Current points: 6
Pending points: 0
Total points: 6

Asphaltqueen to Miss Violaceous - Floppy Dish Notebook (mixed paper) - 1 point.
Asphaltqueen to Miss Violaceous - Floppy Dish Notebook (white paper) - 1 point.
