I have many friends who create amazing things with yarn. Some knit, some crochet, many do both. I am the cheering section that Ohhhs and Ahhhs over their creations.
These same friends have shared some fun dragon inspired patterns they have found online. You may find them here, here and, here
This week my friend Andrea shared this dragon inspired yarn.
It is called Venti Dragon Mocha. I found it online at Madelinetosh.com
The first one is
DK Twist | Venti Dragon Mocha
The other is
Tosh Merino Light | Venti Dragon Mocha
These yarns are 100% Merino wool. The Tosh Merino Light is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa. The DK Twist is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in Peru. Both are dyed to order.
These are beautiful and I love the dragon name. The colors remind me of a woodland dragon.
This site has many beautiful yarns. If any one makes something with this yarn please share a photo.
I love Etsy. It is a great place for finding interesting handcrafted items. This weekend I discovered the shop for Kelsey Family Farm. The farm is located in Southwest Washington. Their “about” page starts with these three words: organic, permaculture, sustainable. You have my attention.
Also from their About page: “We are a small farm in Southwest Washington with a mission to provide great food and goods for our family and our neighbors. We raise sheep, goats, and chickens each of which contribute to income for our farm.”
Most of their Etsy products are yarn or sheep skins. What does this have to do with Coffee Monday you ask? They have recently created their own coffee blend.
From the description: “We worked with a local roaster to produce our first exclusive coffee! This is a heavenly, medium roast Costa Rican bean, FAIR TRADE and ORGANIC. Whole beans are packed fresh in 10 ounce compostable bags, just right for holiday giving.”
Sounds like a wonderful gift idea. They also sell it in one pound bags.
Do you have a friend who loves coffee and knitting or crochet? They have a wonderful gift box that includes a 10 ounce bag of Wake The Rooster coffee, a logo coffee mug, a bag of toffee from a local toffee maker, a skein of yarn from their Shetland/Icelandic, Gotland sheep, a hat pattern from a local designer and a beaded stitch marker. (Pssst. It is on sale now)
