Hooked on lions

Be sure not to miss this exhibition if you're in London. Crocheted HUGE lions by artist Shauna Richardson. You can see them at the Natural History Museum until 10th of September. What a work!

The Lion Heart Project         

Lions on tour, what a sight!

Another fab crocheted piece by the artist.

Gradient and gorgeous

It feels like I'm going on about yarn with long colorways. I happen to love gradient colored stuff, don't ask me why. So imagine my excitement when I found this seller on Etsy. The shop is called Color Shift Yarn and is run by Erica Heftmann. She calls herself "a studio dyer and Senior Member of the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists" which I suppose is a fancy word for dyeing wizard. So she has been developing these dyes for 20 years but still, there must be some kind of magic involved when the results look this good! Just imagine all the things you could do with it... I can't stop thinking about it.

Pictures are from her shop
