    Fairyhare Yarn to Knit Up the Wild Apple Sweater Pattern Is in the Book Poems of Color by Wendy K
    15 colors make the wild apple palette shout even though it was inspired by a mountain ash tree in the fall. I include an extra updated color chart and list of colors to use on each row. There are 8 shades of green going from the darkest olive for the main color through a very light chartreuse color. There are russets, oranges to balance the greens. The size of the sweater kit is determined by the measurement of the sweater at just under the arms. So if you have a nice light sweater that fits you well, just measure the circumference of the chest just below the arms. The yoke contains 14 colors 7 different shades of green! The main color is a dark olive. There are 5 skeins (2 oz each) of the main color for the size 40', 5 1/2 skeins for the 44' and 6 skeins for the 48' sweater. Larger sizes would take more of the main color only and can be ordered extra. All of the yarn is fairyhare-30 angora and 70 merino 275 yds 2 oz. Skein spun at green mountain spinnery in vermont. Fairyhare is made with kimmet croft fiber merino wool from janice's 35 merino ewes and angora fiber from american angora rabbits.

    Now 110 Incredible Ooak Vintage Silk Juban Under-Kimono With Woodblock Prints
    I actually bought this on etsy as i was so entranced by the back of this kimono and the woodblock prints that i simply had to have it. Unfortunately in my enchantment it totally slipped my mind that i look horrible in gray. It is really gorgeous but i don't have room for things that i'm not wearing and this beauty deserves to be seen! It is a 100 silk vintage japanese juban under-kimono with a stunning design of three classic woodblock prints with tanka poems on the back of a light weight (not tissue silk though, heavier than that) gray silk. There are what appears to be some hand-painted japanese letters (?) on sleeves and a few places on back. It has a cream silk lining with some light staining to the silk, mostly at top and a small are on one side, obviously not seen when worn please convo me for a closeup since i am limited to 5 photos and i really wanted to show the prints. The previous owner listed as antique and i think this could be as early as the 30s but possibly later i don't know that much about kimonos. It is simply gorgeous and is in very good vintage condition for its age with the exception of some light stains visible in the bottom woodblock print (see last pix) . As usual it is not as bad as looks in pix and it is the bottom print so not really noticeable when worn unless you hold it up to look closely. Actually to me it kind of added to the vintage look of the piece. The other thing i really liked about this is that it's not overly long so no need to hem. Will fit various sizes due to kimomo style. Measurements sleeves extend 12.5' from body and hang 19' underarm to underarm 25 1/2' length 52'

    Fringed Bolero Decorative Shrug Magical Vest Elegant Vest Priestess Dress Biblical Breastplate
    We call this magical bolero the sabrina, after the water nymph in john milton's wonderful poem: sabrina fair, listen where thou art sitting under the glassy, cool, translucent wave, in twisted braids of lilies knitting the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair. We imagine the fringes of this vest wrapping around your body like the water of sabrina's pool. Handwoven with a special double-weave technique, this garment enhances every outfit. Women have worn it with a white blouse, on a black dress, with jeans, over a bikini, even on a jalabiya. No matter what else you are wearing, it adds a special touch that is almost mystical.
