Artist Spotlight: Parts Thirty-Two and Thirty-Three

I got incredibly busy last week and didn't get a chance to post the artist spotlight, so this week you get two, you lucky dogs!  Our first artist is one you've met on this blog before, Twiddletoes!  So what's she been doing since last May?

How about convertible mitts?!


And slippers?


And hats?


And of course her traditional and tabi socks, which can be found in her Etsy shop, her Cargoh shop, and on her website.



For news?  The blog.

Our second artist this week is another sort of knitter, one you haven't met here before, Gina Dahl of Dahlish.   A creative force, Gina has a huge passion for knitting and creating.  For her, there's nothing better than curling up on the couch with some good music and a knitting project.

She doesn't stop there, of course.  She also loves to play the piano, build things with her kids, and take the dog for walks.

So... what makes her different?  Well, if you check out her Etsy shop, you'll see that she sells knitted dolls!


And puppets!


Clutch toys!


And character or animal blankets, like this giraffe and dragon!



But if you want to really get to know her, you'll read her blog.  It's there that she'll tell you about her kids, her dog, her cooking, and other things she's knitting, like these really cute ornaments.


And this pretty sweater.


I have a question.  What can't she do?

These two knitters are amazingly talented! They're both in a league of their own!

Isn't it amazing what different items 2 people can make with the same skill / craft? And both beautiful. I could use some warm toes and a cuddly doll.
