Felty Weather

Ahh, it's that special time in Austin when the air smells clean and it feels a touch like fall. The past few chilly evenings have prompted me to turn on my gas fireplace, snuggle in with my puppy and kitty, and start my own knit storm. I love it.
This morning we received some new goodies, including new felting supplies and an adorable sea turtle kit from wool pets. I'm in love! With all these things coinciding on my Tuesday, I was
inspired to re-work our knitting/crochet/felting shelf and share the fuzzy goodness with you.

Wool Pets:


We have carried Lamb's Pride yarn in the store for quite some time, but we have recently replenished our stock.
Enjoy the rainbow:

And we have my favorite yarn by Vickie Howell, Vegas! The colors are lovely and the glittery effect is amazing. I think it would make a beautiful holiday-ish cowl. Plus, it is made with wool and soysilk fibers, which is interesting and green.
This photo does not do this yarn I guess you'll just have to see it in person.

Finally, let's talk about Hysterical Yarns made by my bff, Amanda Jones. Check on her lovely goods at It's GORGEOUS!!! If anyone wants to buy me the perfect xmas present, this would be it.

Jennifer Perkins' Amazing Casa

I am in love with this lady's house. It's so great, witty, interesting, fun, and so very Jennifer Perkins. We love you, Jen, and we ADORE your house!!!
These are a few of my favorite photos from Apartment Therapy's article about her South Austin home.

Please check out the whole review on their site. Make sure to spread the love with some comments.
She will be teaching some classic Naughty Secretary Club style jewelry classes soon, so be on the lookout for those dates.


Darling Drawstring Dress Class

I was so thrilled with the different versions of this simple dress that was made during my class a few weeks ago. I wanted to share their lovely creations. Way to go ladies!
Here's what they made:
