The Mermaid Shawl & other Beauties: Shawls, Cocoons and Wraps
by Kathleen Valentine
Why do what has already been done? More than a book of patterns, The Mermaid Shawl & other Beauties, is designed to help knitters create their own works of knitted lace art.
The featured shawl was introduced in 2005 on Kathleen Valentine’s blog and subsequently described in a knit-along but throughout the knit-along Valentine encouraged knitters to make different choices to make their shawl unique to them. Now, using the same principles, she offers techniques, diagrams, charts and tips that offer knitters the opportunity to make choices and decisions that will make each shawl their own unique creation. The book contains instruction for three versatile shawl styles, how to turn a rectangular shawl into a cocoon, a chapter on knitting on the bias, and an original short-story, The Mermaid Shawl*, inspired by the featured shawl.

Lana Lynn is not about to endure a bikini wax to get into her new summer number nope.
She heard that she could make major cash on Etsy by selling hand-made items.
Her little metal crochet hook is busy now, and she's stripping down to her little sexy legs in the process.
Her wool is raveling toward her little project right off her leg.
I guess we will find out what she has underneath all that wool pretty soon won't we? Lana is a little sweety, and as you can see from her booty shot she has a little fluffy tail.
She's . . . well let's just say, "Rubenesque" in her endowments.
Oh Lana, Ewe's not fat, Ewe's fluffy!
Lana is made of sheep wool with enhancements of mohair, and llama wool.
She was hand formed and needle felted over a LONG . .Long . . long time.
Her little expressive lipsticked pout sits below her little soft nose and her expressive eyes with eyelashes.
A little flower sits over one ear.
Such a vixen! Lana, you go girl! Work it!




~*Extreme Spinning*~




4+ oz of hand dyed fibers that are joined together with a lovely 1.6 oz top whorl spindle.
The fibers that are in this kit are 1 oz Organic Merino Top in Lucky Leprechaun, 1 oz Icelandic/Angora Roving in Sprites, 2 oz BFL undyed, and a bonus of 1/2 oz merino/bamboo pin roving to get you started spinning easily.
The Spindle is a simple, handmade spindle that is a perfect weight for beginning spinners.
Cj feels for herself, that a top whorl works better for her when using a spindle.
This 1.8 oz is a great starting weight and the bottom of the spindle is pointed.
This makes for good supported spindling in a 9 inch length and 2.5 inch whorl.
You can even hold it between your thighs to get the feel when you're starting.
Cj uses this spindle when spinning in the car as it can touch the seat and not stop moving because of the point.
This spindle has been set-up with a leader and she has started spinning the pin roving.
The pin roving requires no drafting and will allow you to get a feel for your spindle while not worrying about this.
The bag is cotton muslin.

Leslie Wind and I are also giving away an all sterling silver butterfly cable needle necklace.
The Cable Needle Necklace works for needle sizes #2 and bigger due to it's unique shape.
This elegant necklace doubles as a multi-purpose tool for knitters.
Watch Darcy's instructional video's in her side bar to see how to use one:)
