Red Knit & Crochet Shawl/Cape-The Red Goddess Babalon
Materials: wool, alpaca, vintage buttons
First I activated my spinning wheel and hand-spun several skeins of unique art yarn with wonderful wool and alpaca in shades of deep red. Next, I ad-libbed a sweet jazz knit, building on stitches as the energy flowed. Pick up a few more along this edge, yarn-over and knit 2-togethers across this row, change yarns....finish with a crochet ruffle and a few cork-screw crochet tassels. Add three special vintage buttons and voila! this one of a kind cape/shawl/scarf is created offering an unlimited variety of ways to be worn.
I named her Babalon the Red Goddess.
Don't you want to feel like a goddess??? This piece is a timeless beauty.
This item needs just a little special care: Be sure to clean by soaking gently in warm water with a gentle soap. Squeeze the extra moisture into a thick towel and lay flat to dry. She will love you forever.

This is so gorgeous. The pictures didn't do it justice. I thought I knew where I was going to put this but I may move something to put it somewhere else so I can see it more often during the day. Packed well and shipped quickly.
Insanely obsessed with this handspun yarn! Everything about it is stunning!!
I love love love this crazy hand spun yarn. It is quite unusual - great colors and textures, and the name... well, I saw that very prescient film many years ago, but if you missed it, check out the write-up on Wikipedia. How could anyone not buy a yarn with a name like that? (Although the start-up that is selling meal replacement powders under the same name might be taking it a bit too far, lol.)
These are perfect in every way. I bought them to replace metal ones I inherited. These do not split the yarn easily because of their very pointed tips. They feel at home in my hands and they are beautiful. What more could one ask from knitting needles? Highest quality at a great price Exactly as described Exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Pamela!
