I found this new lopi yesterday while exploring a new yarn store at the ‘Whipletree Junction’. The store is called ‘The Loom’ and it is an absolute treasure trove of wools, fleece, spinning and weaving supplies. My heart was racing and I was a bit breathless as I explored all the nooks and crannies of this store. Products were lined up and down, floor to ceiling with barely any room to move around in. I love these old school type of yarn shops. In Vancouver there is a new breed of yarn stores..ultra organized, house music playing, amazing Japanese Noru yarns and not a verigated baby acrylic in site. I love these kinds of shops too, they appeal to my aesthetic. But, the older shops are where I find my treasures. I’m so inspired by this delicious colour (in the pic it’s mixed with a chestnut mohair) I’m working on a doll right now with this colour hair. I should be done by tomorrow night.
Kids are good, Jasper is fully taking advantage of the ‘breast buffet’ right now and is growing like a weed.
I’ve arrived home to hear this wonderful news! I cannot wait to call and come drop off food and hear more!
Lots of love to you all…love the name.
Sorry, I’m Stephanie of Chip and Stephanie – more formally known as the one with 8 kids! I’ve had 2 homebirths, one birth center, the rest hospital. I also was beginning my midwifery training but had to put it on hold due to extreme depression during pregnancy #7. Then my sweet baby had to go and have heart failure on me at 8 days old – nearly died in my arms while rushing to hospital. This is her blog: http://www.mes7.blogspot.com/ She has complex congenital heart disease but is doing well at this time.
Anyway,I’ve just been hanging around gazing at your beautiful dolls! I was wondering if you crochet a cap then attach the hair?
I’ve also been trying to copy this shirt of Amber’s (the style) for several days now: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bamboletta/480539418/in/photostream/
Your dolls are just simply wonderful! I’ve made a couple of dolls – right now I’m working on my technique.
Thanks for posting.
E.V. – hello my friend! How are you doing? I haven’t ‘spoken’ with you for a long time, I hope that you are keeping well 🙂
