This shawl was made out 4 skeins Malabrigo lace in natural color.

All the wonderful things you have heard about this yarn are true! It is unbelievably soft, warm, a dream to knit with and just wonderful… What can I say? It makes me happy! :)

The beautiful pattern is “Shetland Tea Shawl” by Dale Long.

Just LOVE my “White Christmas” cowl; the perfect accessory for my holiday gatherings!! This pretty accent piece got many compliments, at my company Christmas party. I made this using ARTYARNS Beaded Silk 250S, purchased at FABULOUSYARNS. Thank-you Iris for the lovely “Home for the Holidays” pattern! :)

Beaded Mohair and Sequins Lace Jacket

skeins of Beaded Mohair and Sequins Gold.  It was made for a benefit to raise money for our local art guild that is renovating and old theatre.  I wore it to the benefit and they auctioned it right ‘off my back’.

This is a free form short row wrap using various colors and textures.  A distinct feature is the use of Monte Mc Bride’s amazing core-spun in silk and bamboo.

This regal design combines both the needle art forms of knitting and crochet. It was inspired by the movie Braveheart and the very lovely period head piece worn by Princess Isabella (Sophie Marceau). Made from 4 balls of 100% French Angora from fabulousyarn.com, a crocheted band anchors the piece.

It is adorned with a knitted braid that falls into netted coifs on either side of the face. A silk scarf is draped and anchored around the face ending at the back of the pearl encrusted tiara with the end hanging free. A knitted attached snood with metallic eyelash trim completes the look. Measures 12.5“ in circumference at the top edge and 16“ long (unstretched). My pattern will be available soon at:
