Yarn in View

During the winter I like to surround myself with yarn.  It's the best time to cozy up and knit or crochet.  Just looking at the soft yarn and textures brings a comforting feeling. 

My Santos doll is wearing her shawl.  It's a remnant of an earlier crochet project ...

Yarn gathered on the living room desk...soft and pretty:


I've kept the fun fur yarn on this adorable bag from Sandi.  It looks sweet with this vintage book from her:


The throw on this chair was a hand-crocheted gift from my Aunt when our son was born:

More yarn texture lies in the galvanized bucket.  The pillow cover was made from an old knitted sweater:

With Valentine's day coming up, I've been working with some of this pink sparkly yarn (top right).  It's got sequins in it!  And isn't the vintage wrapping on the other pink yarn so cute?

Sharing these soft textures over at White Wednesday.  I love to see all the winter whites over there!

I love your Santos doll, how darling the little sweater is on her!!! I saw on the Tuesday Morning website that they're selling those dolls for $49!

I love your little vintage book, I just bought a gorgeous book from Sandi's shop also but it hasn't arrived yet...I can't wait:) I see you're having a sale in your Etsy, going to check it out. I just pinned your wings to my Pinterest yesterday:)

Beautiful Susan!! I use to love to knit and crochet, but I just haven't had the time for it in the past couple of years. Maybe I need to get my yarn out and make some time.
Hope you have a lovely week.
Sincerely,
Melinda

I love seeing yarn in a bowl, my mother used to always put some in a basket for decoration only.

Oh Susan,
Your Santos doll is absolutely beautiful. I got two for Christmas and have been looking around for some inspiration for how to dress and embelish them. I am so happy I came across your lovely blog. I cannot wait to look around some more. Thank you for the inspiration.

Hugs and Kisses,
Ana
