Angels are sweeping the country!

Now that I have Clothespin Angels (Annie's Attic) Angels are filling my craft spaces! I can't stop making them! These exquisite angels are addictive. They require sport weight yarn (I chose cotton and wool, the former for the sheen and the latter for its homeyness), clothespins, wooden balls, pipe cleaners, doll hair, paint and other odds-n-ends for decoration.

The instructions are easy to follow and each of the nine dresses are done before you even realize it.

I did make one change in the pattern. I felt that the wings overpowered the angels and made them look like butterflies. So I finished the wings off at the end of row 6, instead of row 11.

These angels are so incredible that I had to promise all of my work friends that I'd make them a guardian angel!

For Christmas ornaments I substituted thread for sportweight yarn on the wings: the results was spectacular. I still have a bunch to make.
