I found an urchin like yours in the second picture on our honeymoon, it was so special, full of memories, intricate and fragile as a piece of china.
You have an interesting variety for study.


Hi Mary,
I love sea urchins! I only found three intact ones along the beaches we walked as they seem to be easily broken in the surf.
There is a really neat Etsy shop that sells jewelry made from sea urchins, shells, etc., called Star of the East. I bought a sea urchin ring from them years ago. I had not ever seen one in nature before January of this year. Here's a link to the shop if you're curious - https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/StaroftheEast?ref=l2-shopheader-name


That yarn is so pretty. It reminds me of a sunrise.


Me, too, Jenny! I saw the yarn and loved it and so I found a pattern to work with it. It reminds me of summer and being a little kid.

I have used a thick and thin Malabrigo yarn many times for hand warmers - I just love it. It's Gruesa, but looks just like the one you have. The texture gives a lot of interest to what's otherwise a plain design.


I will have to look up the yarn you mentioned, Lisa. Thanks for the suggestion!

I do sometimes link to resources that I and my family personally use and recommend. I participate in Amazon's associates program and if you enter Amazon.ca through my blog and then make a purchase, I will receive a small percentage of the sale. I link to Amazon more for the sake of making it easy for people to find certain book titles, however, if you have a local bookshop that has a good selection please support independent booksellers. I often shop on eBay and online secondhand book shops as we don't have a book shop of any size nearby.
