My Biggest FO Yet!

So. I haven't had much to show in the way of Finished Objects of late. I've barely touched the needles, or the crochet hooks for that matter! But it's all been for a very good reason. I promise.

Some of you may know, I've been spending all my spare moments glommed in front of the computer...well, the spare moments between putting fluff in the air and turning my fingers rainbow hued anyhow. I've been teaching myself new tricks :) and I'm finally ready to share.

I'm pleased to announce that my little business has grown to the point where my humble blogshop is no longer large enough to easily browse! SpritelyGoods has now moved to its own domain with a bigger and growing product selection!

C'mon over, have a look - I think you'll like what you see!

Red Poppy Pillow

I can finally share this finished work with you :) it's a design I did using this yarn for SWTC and For the Love of Yarn. It's a brightly colored departure from the traditional throw pillow - and if you can't find a round pillow form (or refuse to pay the 3x price of a square one) you can bully a square pillow form into behaving. :) that's what I did!

For you knitters out there, stay tuned. I'm trying to get a knit version cracked. It's proving to be more challenging, simply because it's easier to create a firm not-so-stretchy fabric in crochet.
