Fast delivery! This wool is very soft and a pretty tan color. Clean and wrapped in a hank. Can't wait to use it for some thrummed mittens. Came with 2 samples of other wools. Thanks!
Like many of us on Etsy, I have been creative my entire life. I wrote poetry about Nature and Love, when I was young, and after the children came, I put my creative energy into textile crafts and home arts.
I am self-taught in hand quilting, sewing, hand spinning, natural dyeing, hand weaving, rug hooking, crochet, then finally, hand knitting and hand knitting pattern design, having done the last the longest – more than 20 years.
I love to bake and cook, often doing it the way my grandmother would have – without recipe, although my recipes are geared towards providing health – using good fats, free range and organic ingredients.
Naturally, I love to garden, and for nearly 16 years, kept an organic, heirloom vegetable garden, at our old farmhouse in NY.
At our new home, on Cape Cod, I am working on creating a beautiful flower garden, as our property is much smaller than in NY (and I'm just not a container gardener – give me Earth, not pots!)
As I miss my vegetable gardens terribly, we'll be installing gutters along a fence, for lettuce and spinach, and will work on a few small beds, for snap peas, bush beans and tomatoes. I'll squeeze some carrots in here and there. The Ronde De Nice zucchini will have to go into large pots, at least this year!
You will find many of my hand knitting and crochet patterns here on Etsy, as well as on Craftsy and Patternfish.
My website (http://www.dawnbrocco.com) and Ravelry, have all my hand knitting and crochet patterns – so if you don't see something you're looking for, do check out my site or Ravelry.
Coming Soon – more handspun yarn, undyed and dyed fiber, and many more ideas are brewing behind the scenes!
I was always passionate about creating a beautiful life, filled with creativity and love, but, even more so, after having had cancer. Life is simply too short, for anything less!
Peace and Love to All!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I have been designing hand knitting patterns professionally, since 1993 and self-publishing, since 1996. My designs range from updated classic wearables to Nature-inspired whimsical baby blanket and home decor, to innovatively shaped cable knits.
You will find my original handknitting and crochet patterns in whimsical, innovative, and classic styles, to tempt your needles.
Also available are hand knit and crocheted design samples, regularly-produced hand knit gift items, hand spun yarns, and very soon, undyed and hand-dyed fiber!
To a creative life!
