Baby Shrug

Isn't this garment the most adorable thing you've ever seen? It was a very fast knit, even if I did have to rip it out a couple of times since it appears that I cannot count. I also did not pay close enough attention to the directions for the ruffles either, since my version is much fuller. However, I LOVE IT!!

The yarn is superwash wool, which I normally detest, but this is really nice and it has a great twist. It is Serendipitous Ewe Fate sport weight, purchased at Frivolous Fibers in St. Michaels.

Fold Formed Copper Pendant with Sea Glass

This is from another fabulous metal class with Barb Claytor, here in Gloucester Point, VA, at Tada's Boutique. We just played with manipulating 24 g copper sheet by folding it and twisting it with firing with a torch in between to soften it. I can't believe how gorgeous it turned out and the sea glass is PERFECT for this piece. Thank you Tammy!
