New yarns coming!

I just ordered some new yarns and they're on the way from the UK.

I've also discovered a couple cool local yarn shops so if you are in the Milwaukee area
add LOOP and Ruhamas to your list of yarn sources.

Todd the Kappa

Todd is a creature from Japanese lore/cryptozoology called a Kappa.

I made him as a gift for a friend into boating,
who also is the center of a "kappa (greek letter k) phenomenon"
a sort of a Chaos field where perfectly functional machinery will get goofy,
apparently, due to the presence of my friend.

Shirley the pink silk bunny amigurumi

Shirley is crochet from silk yarn and was a sweater in a past life.
Give her some time to chat or a book deal, and she'll tell you all about it!

3.25 inches tall

I really love working in silk, and finding it recycled and ready for upcycling,
helps prevent a finished item that breaks the budget.
