time to start bundling up!

it's starting to get pretty darn chilly here at night and in the i've been inspired to make some toastie goods as of late! the bought some new hemp herringbone fabric from marlena of infinitecosmoshemp and this is the first thing i made with some of it. it has a heavier weight to it and it's nice and flowy....just perfect for my new wraps! the green and salmon parts are a hemp/silk blend i hand dyed. i want to keep this sucker...but in the shop it goes! i think i'll make another today. i also added a new hand dyed hemp bag that's reversible.
i tried to sew a bunch last night but i kept messing everything up, so i walked away. sometimes i need to do that...i think i was too tired. i plan on getting at least 3 projects finished today. keep an eye on the shop for new goods!

Lovely! I love wearing hemp -- I'll have to check our your shop. :)

I don't think I have anything in hemp. Sounds interesting. The colour palette of the scarf is lovely.

That is so cool! I wish I could knit (or sew or doing anything half way coordinated with my hands).

It looks great!
I almost had to break out the scarf this morning here too. It was downright chilly!
