Spring into Spring
With Spring upon us and finals thankfully a memory of last week, here are some lovelies I managed to finish in between finals, and a mini road trip to Kentucky (more on that later).
First, some crocheted armwarmers, made from 100% recycled yarn and reclaimed buttons.
I really adore buttons. Really adore them. And I am head over heels for these little fellas.
Next are probably the most elegant pair of armwarmers I've ever made or seen, and they are PERFECT for spring. 100% acrylic (leftover from the Madeleine Tam), upcycled lace, and beads from my stash make a lovely combo.
So does the picot edging! it really turned these into something beautiful, rather than the original simple armwarmers I had planned.
Mmm, lace! The lace is girly, but the deep blue gives it a funky edge.
Flirtatious, funky, feminine, and all around awesome.
More on my rav page, and if you want these to be your very own, check them out on etsy!
I promise to blog more later this week. Next up, the whisper cardigan, and (hopefully) a sneak preview of the launch of a new etsy line/brainchild!
