I just wanted to showcase some talent here... Emily is the newest addition to the Kyarns Team. She has been working here at Kaleidoscope Yarns for several months on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. She does an incredible job of balancing work with married life, loads of school work, her own business and her alter ego - the Crafty Hedgehog! (Check out her etsy shop here!)
Emily brought in a box of creatures today to show us (up close and in person) a portion of her knitted goodies. She's participating in the Queen City Craft Bazaar in Burlington this Saturday, May 9th at Union Station from 10am-5pm. I couldn't - for the life of me - pick a favorite, although I do want to share some of them! There's just something so endearing about these creatures... some of them with just eyes, and BIG eyes at that. This is the White Bellied Bunny. Her version uses Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend and Berroco Plush for the tail. And this barn owl, aptly named "Yarn Owl" is great! Made out of one of my new favorites: Manos del Uruguay Wool Classica Natural yarn. And check out this little guy - the Happy Frog Prince Hybrid - made with the yummy Tilli Tomas Milan! And the Rainy Day Bird, who we've heard is going to someday get a pair of galoshes and an umbrella - all hand knit, of course! (Those legs have NO wire in them folks, they are just stuffed expertly!) Rainy Day Bird was hatched from Manos Silk Blend and Colinette Jitterbug. And here is Cat Ball. I love this little guy! I had no idea that he was made with Tilli Tomas Pure & Simple in the Tuxedo colorway. He's very soft, like a kitty should be! Prrrrrr. Prrrrrr.
And finally, the dissections! You may think these are a little wild, but these are a hot item in Emily's Etsy shop! Wouldn't this be a great gift for your kid's science teacher? It's that time of year...If anyone's in need of a little giftie, head on over to her table at the craft show. Or if you want to try your own hand (& needles) at some of these cool projects, Emily sells her patterns! They're available on Ravelry (look up CraftyHedgehog and check out her patterns!) or on her Etsy shop.
Swing on by the craft show on Saturday to see these in person, it's a DON'T MISS!
