Yarn love....


































Well, I now have lots of knitting and crochet projects 
on the go again...maybe too many but I'm loving the variety...
unintended I've just noticed similar colours seem 
to be recurring and some are shades I don't use very often ;-)...
I've made lots of squares for a cushion and the large square 
above with the little daisy centre is part of the back using 
small yarn remnants...and may change when the front is complete! :-) 

     

Also, a note too for anyone purchasing doll hair yarn for TEAROOM Dolls.....

Little Oke Dolls large loop mohair (above) is now known as 
'Wild Large Loop Mohair'

...it's beautiful and perfect for any type of doll making 
(also EN71 Toy Safety Certified)
 and is included in the TEAROOM Doll Kits with more shades available too at 
Little Oke Dolls online x
(a perfect place to find all doll making materials x)




     

Wishing you a happy weekend all


Back soon

     


P.S  The very pretty handmade yarn bowl was found here on ETSY...I love the colour...
...and I'm happy to report my quilt is now free of all my scribbles...will take a few pics next week x

Your lovely photos are just such a gorgeous way to begin my day.
I've narrowed my number of in-progress projects to just a couple
perhaps it is time to cast on just one or two !!!

Hello Susan,
I always find your choice of colours so soothing somehow, and calming, as well as being very pretty. I do love the look of the big crochet square, and look forward to seeing the finished cushion! As usual, your post is full of inspiration and ideas I can't wait to get started on!
Have a lovely weekend!
With love,
Lynda.

Hello my friend! I am always happy when I see you've posted as I know I'll be getting some sweet pastel inspiration! I have my yarn and pattern for my doll and just need some unscheduled time to delve into it. Can't wait! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Helen Philipps said...

Such lovely yarn pictures, it is nice to try some different shades for a change isn't it? Whatever you choose I just know it will always be beautiful! The mohair yarn for making doll's hair is perfect, very soft and not too fluffy! Love your new crochet.....have a happy weekend, dear Susan.

Your yarn bowl is lovely! I have a similar one on order from Etsy - hopefully it will be here soon. Just love your photos - beautiful!

♥ Mary Janes TEAROOM said...

Thanks Helen....the yarn at the top is my new gorgeous wool and the crochet is yarn remnants that are too lovely to throw away (the two couldn't feel more different!) ...it's good to find a place for them ♥...Have a good Sunday x

♥ Mary Janes TEAROOM said...

Thank you Jayne...and I'm sure you will love your yarn bowl....I found too many lovely ones on ETSY ...they're great when using my winder and swift too as well as knitting (keeps those bouncy yarn balls well away from little Miss Daisy!)...x

Dear, dear Susan! HELLO! Thank you for coming to my blog! And guess what? I am coming back to blogging! I will be on holiday in June, but I do plan on coming back. My book is starting out well because my main problem was to provide my own photography. Well, I've remedied that. I am working on my photography and it's definitely improved to a better quality worthy of a book. OH THE FUN!

Enjoy your holiday! XOXOXO Anita

♥ Mary Janes TEAROOM said...

Wonderful news Anita!!....your book will be fabulous and ooh so happy to hear you will be returning to Blogland soon!!!
Happy New Week ♥

Thank you Jan....(I need to find some new places to hide all my yarn! ;-) )...Hope you're having a great week ♥ x

I'm so jealous of the selection of yarns available to knitters in the UK. Thank goodness for on-line shopping. Some yummy yarn from Little Oke Dolls was at my door in Canada 48 hours after I placed the order! And it didn't cost my first born child for shipping. Actually cheaper than mailing it across Canada.

But I'm still working on getting Jameison's Shetland wool. Any ideas?

♥ Mary Janes TEAROOM said...

Hi Susan....You can purchase the Jamieson's DK for the dolls in all the shades at Little Oke Dolls too and I can't recommend it more highly for excellent service ;-) x
