Sterling Pin with Beads

This shawl pin is 16 gauge sterling silver with some interesting sterling beads and a lovely olive green lampwork bead. It was alarmingly easy to make, but I did run into a little trouble with the point of the pin snagging while inserting it. I finally tracked down some 0000 steel wool which made all the difference in the world. I had great difficulties trying to capture the true color of the bead and was unable to do so

Tidepool Multnomah Shawl in Handspun

Once again, I have made a garter stitch shawl out of my handspun. This one is finished in a traditional feather and fan edging and can be made to any dimensions. This pattern, called Multnomah, can be found on ravelry. The varied colors of this yarn are perfect for garter stitch.

Midnight La La Scarf

This piece is handspun merino wool which is extremely soft, almost like cashmere. The coloring is so much like faded denim jeans which I wear almost every day, that I HAD to make myself a little neck scarf. I have been enamored of garter stitch lately so it pleases me in many ways.
