I use hand painted high quality yarns as the base for most of my designs with added luxurious fibres like silk, cashmere, sparkle yarns, kid mohair and more in some of the scarves for a special elegant touch. Each item is designed by myself and made by myself to ensure the quality of the garment is excellent. I will be adding new designs often so pop by my Etsy store and take a look at the recent additions.

Made with hand painted merino wool that is soft and luxurious to wear. Available in the blue, ivory and gray backgrounds with beach stones and sea plants you see on the beach. One of my favourite places to go is Vancouver, Canada. The yarn used is from SweetGeorgia Yarns which is also in Vancouver, Canada. A perfect match for this design as Felicia often uses inspiration from the area for the colours of her beautiful yarns. The blue is called Deep Cove which is a beautiful area outside of Vancouver that has water this amazing colour. I had a great time popping into SweetGeorgia Yarns last week when I took a visit to Vancouver. More on that later….
You can purchase my designs locally in the Edmonton, Alberta, Canada area at:
I used beautiful Worsted Weight yarn from http://www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com in this new Snowfall colour of light gray and a lovely natural colour called Birch. The yarn is wonderfully soft and luxurious perfect to compliment this elegant design. Below are some of the scarf patterns that will be available soon to compliment these hand and arm warmers.
Stained Glass Window Scarf is based on the Stained Glass Windows of past Architecture with a trim reminiscent of Gothic Style Architecture. As I continue to work on my Architectural journey with yarn and needles I am inspired by many different styles and designs of the past that continue to influence us today. In previous designs I have concentrated on the Stone Tracery on Gothic Architectural buildings. This year I will be concentrating on the Stained Glass with an undertone of Stone Tracery and other aspects of design. I have always loved Stained Glass and even took some course on Stained Glass for a couple of years. I know the depth and extreme talent, patience and skill it takes to make and design a window like this. It is very time consuming and you need to be a perfectionist to achieve the finished product. I can tell you having made Stained Glass in the Past that is much easier to crochet it like I have. I love both working with glass and with yarn, but now that my designing is in yarn again I just had to let my inspiration go in this direction. SEE MORE PICTURES BELOW. At the bottom of these pictures you will see the underside of the Stained Glass Window showing 3 buttons you can use to fasten this design where you like.
This is my first try at Stained Glass with yarn and there is definitely room for improvement and fine tuning so pop by again to see how I improve and enhance this stained glass crochet. I will be selling a few down the road and will let you know at that time where. This is just the beginning of this adventure so come along with me and join in the journey by following my Social Media where I will post new blog posts and listings in this Collection and more.
This scarf was made with beautiful www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com in the dk weight Super Wash Merino wool on the base of the scarf. The metal trim around the “crochet glass” pieces was done in the exquisite Cashluxe Spark yarn in the Slate colour way. It has a lovely sparkle to it that shines in the light giving that perfect metallic essence. The Stained Glass pieces were done in www.malabrigoyarn.com Rios yarn that I had on hand. I love combining different yarns from different companies at each is unique especially when it comes to hand painted yarns like these. Each skein of hand painted yarn is done perfectly just for you to expand the Artistic journey for the item you are making.
