Beautiful Colors

There is a parade of color coming in and out of  the doors of the yarn store every day. Big bags of all colors of yarn go out with happy excited people. We often get to see what fabulous ideas have turned into beautiful pieces of art.

This is a piece of Freeform needlepoint made by a favorite customer. We had no idea that those little skeins of needlepoint yarn could turn into this one-of-a-kind yarn painting.

This is made with a skein of handpainted wool sock yarn. The textured stitch makes it look like a complicated Fair Isle pattern.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the finished project of this crocheted afghan- I'm sure it was incredible! The colors and stitch combinations used were sure to make this a family heirloom.

This afghan took my breath away!
I had helped this customer pick out 
yarns and colors that went together.
I had no idea that THIS is what she as creating!
It was made with cottons, silks and 
linens in a Domino knitting technique. 

I think this is one of my all time favorite finished pieces. It is so rewarding to be able to help someone create something as beautiful as this afghan. 

(I liked it so much I downloaded it twice!)
