New Wands

So, to have a small respite from knitting I've been working on some wand designs. This is the latest - a star wand. I was inspired by MamaJudes beautiful plant dyed rainbow bulky wool yarn and matching felt. The wooden dowel is wrapped in yarn creating a beautiful rainbow. I used my favorite blanket stitch on the star edges and smaller star applique. Again, the only unnatural element is the ribbons in blue, green, and yellow. The wand is for sale now in my etsy shop. I'm hoping to make a few more designs to sell in the shop as well as at the big May Fair event at my son's Waldorf school.


  1. I absolutely LOVE these wands. Definitely some of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen. I'll be linking on Facebook!

  2. oh lovely! Great idea. I wish I had a ittle one to use them.

  3. Gorgeous! We will definitely try this!
