ATTENTION ALL CROCHETERS, KNITTERS, YARN CRAFTERS/ ARTISTS: I am working on a large scale crochet installation art piece and need gobs and gobs of yarn. If you have little balls of scrap yarn taking over your closets, please consider donating them to this project. I will happily pay for shipping costs. I will use any material, wool, acrylic, blend, whatever you got. I am working with a pallet of earth tones- greys, beiges, creams, whites, browns, and some earthy purples, greens, maroons, etc. If you are interested in de-stashing/ donating yarn to this starving artist's cause, send me a private message and I will give you my shipping address and comp you for any shipping costs. Thanks for reading my rambling solicitation!

Head on over to the shop for some lovely fuzzy bowl goodness. I crochet each bowl with 100% wool yarn, then felt them in hot soapy water. After letting them dry over the bottom of a glass jar (so they hold the perfect shape), I applique a little white heart to inside on the bottom. Imagine getting one of these filled with chocolate kisses or doves, getting to the bottom, and discovering a little love inside. So sweet!
