Sarah and Bronwyn Visit, Big Snowy Owl, and Cocoa Blocks
This show is sponsored by my Longaberger home Business www.longaberger.com/paula and Quince and Company.
If you are looking to support American goods, then you can start with Quince & Co with their beautiful and reasonably priced wools sourced in the US. Check out Finch, their new fingering weight in colors inspired by nature.
Paula’s Projects: Woodturner’s Pully. Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Saddle Shoulder Sweater. After washing and blocking it measures out perfectly!
Label for sweater. I tried a wool label, first ironing onto freezer paper to stiffen the fabric. Bronwyn suggested printing on computer. I may try backstitching on counted cross stitch fabric. Ecological Wool makes a very light but warm sweater.
