Henley

I made this Henley last year of Henry’s Attic Gaia organic merino but didn’t wear it because I didn’t like the sleeve cap. I put it in time out and finally reworked it. I will wear it this winter.   The other yarn is Cascade 220 marled.

Dragon Bracelet

I made this dragon snake bracelet based on a camping weekend with a little friend who was in the first grade. She happened on a piece of skin recently shed by a colorful snake and carried that piece of dead skin around for weeks I am told.

In order to replicate that organic torn skin shape I ripped up a paper towel and used it for a pattern. You can see the natural snake markings in the finished piece along with the unnatural dragon spikes.
