The Velvet Acorn Designs  Inspired by nature • Mom of three • Sharing a love for knit & crochet one design at a time • Warm wishes

A few of my favorite things...sitting with a warm cuppa ☕️ under a beautiful mountain of yarn while enjoying the company of my loved ones...I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be✨What are a few of your favorite things?

• I can’t believe it’s Friday already! I don’t know who’s more excited about this...the kids or me? Either way we are all excited to sleep in and wear our cozies all day 🤗 I was able to grab a photo of my Wander Forever shawl that I just finished (pictured in my last post). I tried to get it all in the photo ☺️ It does have a bit of green in it but the overall look fades through grey’s and black✨Warmest wishes and Happy Friday! 🌿

• I cast on a second Wander Forever shawl awhile ago and have been working on it here and there...I finally bound it off and blocked it on Mother’s Day • I am so excited to have it completed so I can wear it all the time or at least in the morning with my ☕️ and in the evenings as a light layer while we move into summer 😊 I am always working on something new. Currently I have a crochet piece on the hook, this is the sister design to my knit version I just completed • I am looking forward to sharing these two new designs with everyone • Warmest wishes✨🌿 • The Wander Forever shawl uses 5 skeins of fingering weight yarn held double strand through out, pictured in @barnyardknits sock/fingering✨

• Choose Kindness & Laugh Often✨🌿Warmest wishes always

• Today I plan to page through this beautiful book while sipping my ☕️ Then to sit and work on one of my new designs while I think about what I might like to try dyeing first 🤔 Warmest wishes to everyone✨🌿

• My color palette for current designs...I just blocked one and I am now ready to start its sister design • I so love working with all kinds of yarns, however I do have my favorites that I seem to grab time and time again. Do you have a favorite yarn that you find yourself drawn to and pick up over and over? Warmest wishes✨🌿
