Sparkle Sock Yarn and other 'Stuff'

I visited the Alderney Farmer's Market, Dartmouth, on Saturday. Jill, my daughter, was set up there from 8 am - 1 pm. There were lots of vendors, from food (vegetables, fruits, meats, baked goods, jams / pickles, breakfast items, coffee . . .) to clothing, jewelry, carvings, yarns and more.

I purchased some yarn with a hint of sparkle from Elegantly Twisted Yarns, owned by Andrea Hiscock and Connie Dolomount. Andrea is a fellow Newfoundlander, living in Dartmouth. Here's my purchase. The sparkle, called Stellina, doesn't show up here but it's gorgeous! Of course, I won't be knitting with it but cutting it up to use in my art work.


When organizing the studio last week, I found a few small projects / samples of work that I had forgotten about. Have a look:

I have no idea at the moment what I will do with the about pieces but they are hanging on my design panel for inspiration. Maybe I will have a whopper of an idea.

In any case, here's more sewing / quilting ideas:

  1. ooooh - that yarn looks delicious! I'd definitely be making a pair of socks if it were mine. Fun to see your little projects that I know will become 'something' before long. And I really like the reading pillow - perfect for my grandsons!
