I live in a stone cottage in the middle of 100 acre wood without running water, television, or radio. I spend most of my time teaching, homesteading, or messing around with fiber. Both of my daughters like fiber as well, but the older one has recently decided that boys are more compelling than yarn. Silly girl.
My first spinning wheel belongs to my mother, who made me a pair of legwarmers in 1983 (homegrown fleece, thick homespun and dyed with kool-aid, knitted with traditional Sauk-Suiattle tribal designs) when everyone else was getting nylon ones from Kmart. I currently spin on my dreamy Schacht Matchless and my teeny tiny Majacraft Little Gem. I heart fiber and adore working with color and texture.
I have been a crafter ever since I can remember. I sew, macrame, embroider, tatt, make bobbin lace, weave, spin, knit, crochet, make block prints, papercraft, create candles, quilt, make jewelry, dollmaking, and more...
I also have a clothing line called "The Wicked Wench," featuring all manner of niceties: bonnets and bloomers, steampunk collars and cuffs, feather fascinators, mittens, wristers, vintage clothing, and much more.

This pattern uses Yarnarchy Shearlocked art yarn, made with uncarded locks of kid mohair. I find the woven look of the seed stitch to look great with the contrast of the unruly locks. The photos feature the Haint colorway, made with handpainted roving in smoky charcoal and ebony paired with bright sulphur yellow mohair locks.
You can buy a skein of Shearlocked Art yarn in various colorways at www.yarnarchy.etsy.com You'll need less than one skein for this pattern.
