Yarnable Wednesday is my fav! Here are some favorite finds from this week:

Lynn Garrett makes chunky knits for your furniture! She sells some terrific chair leg-warmers at her Etsy shop, Biscuit Scout.

Knitt Purr makes incredibly small things by knitting on pins. Yes. Pins. Dolls aren't entirely my thing, but boy do I respect that craftsmanship!

Needle Noodles sells patterns to crochet just about anything on their Etsy shop.

And finally, this dress by Jemma Sykes. Oh. My. Goodness. Jemma designed and knitted this phenomenal dress for Butcher Couture, a company specializing in eco-couture. This piece is made of naturally-dyed 100% wool and was worn by Maria Mena on the cover of her album  "Cause and Effect". It was auctioned off to support the Breast Cancer Campaign. Wow. This dress has a longer resume than I do.

Thank you to ArtisicThings for the images. See more about this dress there.



wow, what a dress! and I love that it brought in money for the Breast Cancer Campaign (kidney and breast cancer, among with other complications, led to my mothers death in 2008)

Love the top yarn photos too!

I'm sorry to hear about your mother, but it's terrific that people can donate their work selflessly to such an important cause.
