Rainah the Fairy by Molly Ritchie
Rainah is a hand-knit fairy who wears pastel colours of the rainbow, lifts spirits, and promises good times. Rainah's dress uses hand-dyed 'Kidston Island' yarn from Fleece Artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The colours of artist Molly Ritchie's materials are symbolic: yellow for the sun, blue for the water, green for the land, pink for the wild roses, and so on.
Molly Ritchie makes knitted and crocheted fantasy creatures including fairies, unicorns, dragons and mermaids. She also makes seahorses, crabs, fish and flying pig fridge magnets, as well as crocheted dreamcatchers, mandalas and bracelets. Ritchie is a member of the Baddeck Quilters Guild and her creations have appeared in their shows. Ritchie enjoys working with unusual and hand-dyed yarns.
