Knitting Dragonflies

Do you love to look at a glass jar full of buttons? Or glitter shakers all lined up? Do craft supplies grouped together look like candy to you? Then you are going to drool over the glorious colors in the skeins of yarn at Knitting Dragonflies, the etsy shop of my etsybloggers colleague, Vicki.
Not only does Vicki knit beautiful soft scarves, she spins and dyes her own wool in gorgeous shades. Her wonderful blog is full of all sorts of resources for knitters and crocheters. She even has a fantastic step-by-step on dyeing raw yarn. I am in awe of artisans like Vicki who take their art through all stages of the process.

I'd wear this hat everyday! Love the tassels.
Visit Knitting Dragonflies for beautiful handknit items and wonderful yarn for you knitters and crocheters!

Wow! Thanks for the kind words!
Love your blog and I like your cards you make! I think handmade cards are so nice to get in the mail. Something we don't do enough anymore.

That's a real neat hat!!! I have no talent for knitting - but I admire those that do!

Wow, that is truly amazing. It's great that there are people who keep up with something that's literally a dying art.
