“Yarn is Oxygen for My Hands”

You may already be aware of this lovely lady but just in case you’re not… Melody Hoffman of Mandarine’s is a knitting pattern designer and natural crafter. Her designs all have the spirit of the outdoors. She also sells naturally died yarn in small batches that work beautifully with her patterns.

The element that ties her work together is a simple elegance. The patterns have beautiful detail to them without being fussy. They would be appropriate worn anywhere.

Have you worked with her patterns or yarn before? I think the Hollows (the wrap in the top picture) may be my next knit although the Gingko sweater (above) would be great for the fall here in South Texas. Hmmm… what to chose?
