Meet Georgina

My newest knit hat design. Pair my obsession with the Chevron Scarf pattern (mentioned earlier) with an overwhelming desire to do something already with this fantastic colorway (Adara) from Three Irish Girls, and what you get is Georgina.

Ultra-feminine, retro-inspired cloche. Now for sale in my shop and hopefully the pattern is soon to follow.

I am on a Scarf Binge

You may recall a previous post about my new scarves, both the one I knit and the one I bought for myself. Well, cursed Ravelry turned me on to the Chevron Scarf Pattern by Joelle Hoverson:

And now I have spent many a countless hour in front of my computer screen trying to track down just the right combination of multicolor sock or hand-dyed yarn to make the most beautifully striking Chevron Scarf ever.

I have 3 batches of yarn coming.

One of them is bound to work.

I am obsessed.

On a related note, I discovered delicious handspuns from etsy seller rivulettecraft today:

PS. Pears are Back!

In case you haven't visited my shop lately, I recently added a batch of Mini Pears. These are even minier than before (about 3 1/2" high) and I have a batch of medium-sized pears on deck. They just need some little leaves added and then they will be posted!

See My Scarf

I found this gorgeous handspun from SeeJayneKnit Yarns some time back and just had to have it. The colorway is amazing! Teals and purples and golds and burgundies...gorgeous! I knew that I wanted to knit up a chunky, warm winter scarf with this stuff so here it is:

Similarly, I have had my eye on Tolani scarves for some time now. Admittedly, the fact that they have become hopelessly linked to candids of Jessica Alba made them a bit of a turnoff. However, when I saw this number on ebay, I just had to spring for it:

And, yesterday I placed my order for the Jane Origami sweater kit from Perl Grey:

I just cannot wait to get started on it. It is sure to be a lot of fun if not a bit of a challenge...Looks like it should be nursing friendly, heh? Speaking of, I may not get a chance to get started on this one if it doesn't come soon...
