{mood board} Italic Shawl

Italic Shawl

"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance"  - Coco Chanel 

What began as a “I’m not sure this will work in a shawl” turned into “Wow, that is stunningly elegant” as the design took shape. Italic has its inspiration based in a technique, but is obviously so much more than that; the  simplicity and elegance hints at high fashion, and color choices make it completely personal. I see this shawl in so many places: wrapped around an LBD coming out of a broadway show, thrown over jeans and a tee on a sunny brunch patio, and even on the beach partially hidden by a gloriously giant sun hat.

The versatility of this design made for a very interesting mood board. From the elegant ballerina to an intense color pop in architecture, there is a lot of contrast, and something for everyone. I hope you enjoy seeing the inspiration and love Italic even more!

Sirius Rising

Sirius Rising

Summer is here! The heat may be building and sunny days multiplying, but we still crave our hand knits. Over air conditioned spaces, cool breezes off the water, and late night concerts in the park are the perfect reason for that extra bit of coverage that Sirius Rising is perfect for. Wherever your summer takes you, look stunning doing it!

{mood board} Party Favor

Celebrations are my favorite! Especially birthday celebrations. Every May, I bring you a free shawl pattern as a token of my appreciation and to celebrate my birthday.

This year I was inspired by confetti, streamers, and the bright colors that bring such joy to these events. I hope you enjoy your Party Favor!

Fog Along 2018 FO Inspiration

Fog: A Shawl Recipe has over 30 FO pages on Raverly. I loved looking through the various on the Fog theme as I searched for inspiration for my own Fog shawl for the KAL. I loved every single FO and have pulled some of those to showcase the versatility of the Fog Shawl! Be sure to follow on social media for what specifically struck me on each of the shawls.

I'd love to have you join us for the Fog Along and make your own Fog Shawl! Why don't you check the Knit Along thread over on Ravelry and say hi?
