When I saw this yarn I thought is was the perfect combination of colour and texture, with a lovely smooth progression of colour. I’ve brought some for the girls and I, to each have a delicate, soft scarf, and hopefully I will have the girls’ ones knitted in time for their birthdays in August.
The yarn has a 50/50 composition of Wool and Acrylic, and is Moda Vera brand called “Fern” from Spotlight. I think Moda Vera is an in-house brand, only available at Spotlight, (if you too have little girls that might go gaga for this yarn and want to track it down).
It is birthday season here at the house of Matching Pegs, as we all have birthdays in Winter.
Luke’s birthday is first, and the kids and I were pretty pleased with the cake that we made him. The icing face on the cake is based on a sketch that Luke did, called “fluke face man”. He is meant to be like those crazy manga faces, which either have enormous or tiny mouths, depending on their facial expressions. This same face has made its way into one of my patterns for Hoop Faces – party stitching, as one of the 12 different faces.
I’ve been working hard on writing up my patterns for self publication, and Luke and I have been working on a site redesign, which is why things have been so quiet on the blog. I’m not quite ready for a reveal, but things are moving along.
What are you working on at the moment?
