Recently I resolved to spend less. Less on food. Less on books. And less on craft supplies. These are probably my main spending vices. But also things I really enjoy.
My wonderful friend suggested that I still allow myself to buy craft supplies but use them to create handmade gifts. That way I can still enjoy making and creating. And then I can give handmade.
I think this means I get to have my cake and eat it too!
So I've been knitting up gorgeous crowns in lovely vibrant 16 ply wool using this pattern. And dyeing my own playsilks ~ again in bright brilliant colours ~ using acid dye.
I'm pretty pleased with the results and hope the recipients are enjoying them! And who knows, maybe I'll make enough to sell at the markets!
