the tools of the trade

in case you were wondering...

on the craft exchange, one custom sewn camera case can be traded for an absolutely gorgeous hank of hand dyed yarn, like this one from dragonfly fibers! pictured above is one skein of dragonfly djinni sock in the most amazing peach melba colorway. the djinni base is 80% merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon and 100% awesome.

thank you kate for the trade! the original intent was to actually use this sock yarn to make socks...but now that we've become acquainted it seems a shame to hide something so lovely in a shoe.

you can own your own piece of hand-dyed paradise by visiting dragonfly fibers on etsy. you can also catch up with kate on her blog or get up close and personal with her yarns at fibre space.

Oh, Kate is just lovely! Possibly even moreso than her yarn, which is tough to do!

In case anyone is wondering; the case is amazing and it was hardly an even trade (definitely worth an armful of Djinni any day of the week!) Thank you so much for doing such beautiful work for me:)
