Oh, and check out my new logo....I love it!!

A little tease.......

This will be my latest just needs to be written up. I was inpsired by Regency-era fashion, albeit for men.....I'm thinking ruffled neck cloths, cravats, jabots,whatever you call them. Then when I laid my hands on some gorgeous ArtYarn "splash" mohair and silk blend yarn WITH beads and sequins in it, oo la la, a ruffled neck scarf was born!! I actually really love the results. You can wear it straight on peeking out of a jacket a'la cravat, or twisted to the side for a jaunty French-y look, you decide....

Turns out I love to make hats. Check these out: A textured hat I did up for a Knitting 102 class at Renaissance Yarns, and the other is a naval-inspired slouchy toque, perfect for pint-sized pirates!

Is is a capelet? Cape? Huge cowl? Dare I say it.....poncho???? K, this squishy warm luxurious capelet is done up in 100% baby alpaca. Chunky style. It is a top down, in the round knit, started with a tubular cast on to preserve its stretchiness. Modeled here by my beautiful friend Brooke, you can see that it is the ultimate layering piece. Over a t-shirt? Blouse? Leather jacket?

Did you know that some folks would tell you that a "capelet" must have an opening, i.e. it must button or tie in the front or back, versus being all one piece. Otherwise, you supposedly have to call it a poncho. Try selling a pattern for a poncho in 2011......just sayin'.

Anyhoo, the pattern will be available in the next day or two. Call it whatever you like, the bottom line is that it is Luscious. So there.
