ATTN: KNITTERS & CROCHETERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am selling a lot consisting of 16 Sandra Fashion Knitting magazines in my etsy supply shop, as well as a lot of 7 Family Circle Easy Knitting (Newer), a lot of 7 Family Circle Easy Knitting (Older) and a lot of 5 vintage Knitting With Simplicity Magazines.

Stunning colour work, lace work, patterns, graphs. Going thru the magazines gave me second thoughts about selling them, but I really need the space. I was also shocked at just how fashionable (currently fashionable) these styles were. Good basic designs as well as designs for the more advanced knitters and crocheters

Art For Your Head "Ambrato"

Art For Your Head "Ambrato"

She is made from bits and pieces of fulled (felted) merino, alpaca, llama.... needle felted to achieve the 3 dimensional quality (the ridges and ruffles in the back)... I used an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous amber ("Ambrato"), honey, butterscotch, hand dyed merino as the accenting colour to the different shades of greys and browns.   The embellishment of the domed vintage wood button (very reminiscent of the contours of the hat itself) along with the handsewn Adventurine beads, makes for a wonderful focal point.  For more pics please see: 
and click on the pic.
