innocence lost

an eco dyed triptych in progress (dresses made from vintage linens, with oil stick rubbings added after dyeing; backgrounds made from old blanket pieces)

in the pink

made this beanie and ear warmer for a certain 4 year old princess who loves pink!beanie and headband for amaya - by rita summers 2013

also, here’s a sneak preview of my current project in progress – a queen anne’s lace scarf using a thick variegated yarn and a 7 mm crochet hook

spinning flower beanie

this over-the-top beanie was an experiment

i crocheted 2 strands together – a hot pink fluffy ‘novelty’ yarn and a cream pure wool

the tassels are handmade, with needleweaving around the top

the flower embellishment wasn’t supposed to look like it was spinning, but when it was finished i rather liked it anyway

i took the beanie around the house to photograph it – it was too cold and windy outside

here it is on a door knob

now it’s on my wooden paint box just inside our front door

and – last but not least – on our laundry basket
