I couldn’t resist adding a bright blue “love monkey” applique to this green hoodie.

Next, it’s going to get outlined with this gorgeous blue/green yarn.

The yarn, from mymixmix, came already felted, so the hoodie can be washed without any problems. Brilliant!

You can do so many things with it, in addition to knitting, of course. For example, I was  working on a new camisole and really  wanted something to complement the pale green and orange color scheme. So I searched the etsy listings for green and orange yarn and found “Mr. McGregor’s Garden” by frommyartoyours.

Perfection! Just the right colors, plus I loved the fact that it’s so animal friendly and uses faux cashmere, something I’d never heard of.  It arrived a few days later and was even better than I expected — very soft and lush, perfect for embellishing lingerie. So here’s the work in progress, with various elements still needing to be attached.

The yarn trim isn’t knitted, it’s sewn on and beaded, so it looks almost like a necklace.

Finally, just for fun, I made a funky little bracelet with the same yarn.


All this and there’s still lots more yarn to work with! Thank you, frommyarttoyours!!!
