A Gnome, a Cowl and a Necklace

I thought I'd share a few pictures of some of the things I've made recently.

I made this little gnome for my friend Emily's birthday because she's really into gnomes right now. I'm not really a gnome person but I almost kept it because I thought it came out so cute. I used a free pattern--Simply a Gnome--which is available here.

This is a cowl I made from another free pattern. I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with it yet--I just felt like making it. It's made from my yarn--Grasshopper Handmade Superwash Merino Sock--in the colorway Silflay.

I've also come up with a new necklace design for my Etsy shop. It's a felted cord with glass beads added in randomly before felting. You can wear it wrapped around your neck up to four times. I really like these--hopefully other people do as well.

New Semi-Solid Colorways

I've been working for what seems like forever on perfecting a technique for semi-solid colorways and I believe I have finally done it. I have three colorways so far and I'm working on several more. All of the yarns are dyed randomly so they should not pool.

This is Tangled Up in Blue:

This is Elphaba:

And this is Collective:

They are all available in Superwash Merino Sock yarn in my Etsy shop right now.

Artist of the Month Yarn and Interview

My yarn and my Artist of the Month interview are up at yarn4socks today. Yay! I'm unreasonably excited. I'm working on a bunch of new yarns, including a new line of semi-solids, so I'll have lots to share very soon--but for now I just wanted to let everyone know about my temporary fame.
