Beautiful Things Part Two

Sabra is modeling a sweater knit of Claudia's Handpainted Yarns. It's asymmetrical design fits a spectrum of shapes. Entirely knit of stockinette, the pattern is written for every weight of yarn. The pattern is available at the store.

Gwen's February Lady Sweater below. We have about ten gals knitting the sweater and this is the second one that is finished. (That I've seen!)

Barbara Jean is creating a series of felted balls that are really works of art rather than toys. She started out making balls for her grandsons, and became intrigued with the design aspect. She knits the balls and stuffs them with netting before felting. They are surprisingly firm for being hollow.

Kris's wonderful shawl. I will remember the name of the pattern soon! It's very sculptural. [Kris writes that it is the Candle Flame Shawl]

This great scarf knit by Nina is four long bands of Paint Box with applied crocheted bobbles and squiggles. I couldn't for the life of me remember how to knit a bobble.

This gorgeous skein of yarn was spun by Tanya. It's colors need to be seen to be appreciated. She is the most fanatical wool buyer I know, next to Myra.
