Coach Legacy Striped Scarf
As someone who has always loved EVERYTHING Coach, I squealed in delight when I came across this pattern! I own a few of their handbags and accessories, but cannot currently afford to buy anymore. This scarf is just the thing I need to get my fix. 🙂
Jeanna’s blog has a couple other scarf patterns (all fabulous) and they’re all reversible. You should check her out!
I came across this online and thought I’d share it:
How it works: You pull the string to take away each day that goes by.
I love this idea because I am essentially creating an ever-growing ball of fiber which I can then knit up into a gorgeous lace stole once the year is done. Genius!
Here’s a video of the calendar in action:
Also, I found this Knitting Clock on-line recently:
It knits the time and produces a 2 Meter Long Scarf at the end of the year! I love the idea of watching time progress in a physical way. Genius!
It is 90 degrees in my apartment right now and I have multiple fans pointed at me to create some semblance of a “cross-breeze.” The A/C has been broken for two weeks. We take refuge from the heat at work, in movie theaters, and frequent trips to Haagen-Dazs, but for the most part we’re melting over here. And yet, here I sit, knitting away and reading new fall knitting magazines. Even as I sweat it out, I can’t help but think of the accessories, baby items, sweaters and afghans I am hoping to create this year. I am dreaming of loved ones dressed head-to-toe in cozy hand knits and long evenings spent knitting in my favorite leather chair. I am even still knitting. I am halfway through a lace stole, despite my urges to cast on an afghan, in the interest of preventing heat stroke.
All these thoughts of fall knits turned my attention to the latest fashions we are seeing flow into stores right now. The Fall 2010 Collections have been released and they are gorgeous! Here are a few of my favorites:
From M Missoni, a beautiful Cashmere Knit Vest in Black and White. I would wear this EVERY DAY!
This Cashmere Knit Top is Oscar de la Renta. I saw this and immediately tried to figure out how to knit it. I love the design, with it’s classic lines and interesting lace panels, and it could be worn anywhere.
Below is more of the Fall 2010 D&G Collection. DIVINE INTARSIA!
This M Missoni Zig Zag Skirt is super cute! It looks like it would be a quick knit too…
So that’s just a taste of all the lovely pieces we’ll be seeing this fall. These breath-taking and inspiring knits are feeding my knitter soul. And now, commence dreaming of that afghan…
