It is really a lovely one. I know she will love working on it.

Here are the towels off the loom. These are a gift for a friend.


(Jane) #126

Beautiful!!! I hope your friend appreciates the labor of love that goes into hand made items.

A pair of socks will have 10-15,000 knitted stitches, depending on the size.

:open_mouth: Holy Moly…

I’ve had inquiries about what I would charge for hand made items.

I am an engineer and my hourly rate is pretty damn high. For a pair of socks or shawl with beads the cost would be unobtainable. It is a labor of love and free and that is my story and I’m sticking to it!!!

Jane, that is cool as ****. Ooh I got the chills. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks! The black is powdered charcoal the other colors are micas approved for skin.

The oils I use are palm, coconut, olive, almond and Shea butter. Super moisturizing and my skin loves it.

That is the prettiest bar of soap I’ve ever seen. It belongs on one of those fancy soap trays :slight_smile:

HI. Not able to paste an image on my iPad here no matter what I try. Is there a trick?


#139

i make jewelry for fun and I also knit/crochet but mainly just afghans and shawls. Everyone in my life has received at least one afghan from me and a recently I’ve just been donating them. I always have to be doing something with my hands
