Buffalo Sweater is up and ready for viewing!

This wild beauty was made with a luxurious Alpaca and Wool fiber that is lightly heathered for a wonderful earthy texture. In some Native American cultures the Buffalo represents Strength and Abundance which is echoed by the spiral symbol in the middle. The crossed arrows on the sleeves represent friendship which makes this sweater the prefect friendship gift!

SoundClouder of the Day | GENE Maya Sladkowski

Gene is the musical moniker of Maya Sladkowski, singer from Southern Finland. "Frankly, I’m just a student who loves old music, warm Norwegian sweaters and northern nature,“ she says.

She has a great soul and folk rock influence in her music. "Little Sister” is a personal song she wrote for her brother and dedicated to those who miss someone else too.

more sweater doodles. the top right hand one is looking the most likely for the mitten kit to be used for, the one below it might be done in red/black/white alpaca if I don’t make and dye yarn for it instead, in which it might be white/green/blue/dark burgandy

thank heavens for elizabeth zimmerman’s books. makes it easier to write patterns.

I guess the next step will be spinning and dyeing yarns. also to break out colored pencils and plan out Moth shawls.
