best wishes to Island Sweet

Tiny Ballerina, Holly in the Snow, and Pink Sand


Holly in the Snow (detail)


Pink Sand (detail)
I wanted to send out my very best wishes to an artist I have met in person and through her blog ... it is Shawn O'Hagan of Island Sweet, she is an exhibitor at the One of A kind Show here in Toronto and will be here in a couple of weeks. Here are some photograghs of my knitting with her work and I am knitting up my very last skein (Tiny Ballerina) of her handspun wool. So, Shawn I will see you at OoAK ...
Everywhere I go that I am either wearing her work or knitting with her wool ... I get tons of compliments and many inquiries. I have gifted scarves that I see my friends wearing all the time.
So, I wish you all the best at One of A Kind in a few weeks ... you can find Shawn on my blogroll! I love her work and can't wait to see her booth in a few weeks!

The wool looks very inviting. I am not a knitter but I am attempting to knit a pair of socks at the moment, it is a real challenge.

I met Shawn last year at Ooak too, what a lovely lady she is. When I met her, she had sold everything she had brought with her from newfoundland.
