Hi Everyone!

I can see it, running through a beautiful golden prairie with the long grass brushing through your toes and your little family dog chasing and barking after you. Just warm enough to wear your favorite romping dress but cold enough to keep your hands warm. (Woo, sorry… Got lost in the moment there) That’s exactly where my mind wandered when I saw these gorgeous fingerless mitts that just scream, VINTAGE. The designer used HiKoo Kenzie in #1000 which gives them an antiquey look, with a touch of garnet stitching as it’s accent/”pop” color.

Vintage inspired, these dainty hand warmers boast gorgeous lacy cuffs in a delicate woodsy leaf pattern. Knit in a luxurious, rustic fiber blend of merino wool, angora, alpaca, and silk noils. The hand stitching accents in deep garnet give these unique gloves a real handmade look and feel.

Happy Monday Crafty Folk!

I hope you all enjoyed your Summer Solstice and are looking forward to the next few beautiful months. In order to keep your needles clicking, and hooks a’ hooking, I will continue to show you some fun, funky and gorgeous things to keep the inspiration flowing. Below, Jane Richmond used HiKoo® Kenzington for her Arika Cowl.

Clever construction transforms a short scarf into a dynamic cowl. The first half is knit in a cushy 2 x 2 Ribbing creating a double layer of comfort while reducing bulk at the back neck. The second half transitions beautifully to an Eyelet Ribbing. The finished piece is blocked asymmetrically to create the flattering kerchief shape. Fringe is added to the outside border completing the look perfectly.
This cowl is fast and fun to knit and absolutely effortless to wear. It pairs beautifully with a denim top and looks just as fabulous worn over a tank in the summer making it a very versatile accessory for year-round wear. An ideal gift knit or instant gratification knit for yourself!”

Hello!

Today, I give you the beautiful, HiKoo® Simplinatural. Emily Johannes has taken this sumptuous yarn and created a smooshy, cuddly, elegant cowl. The Emerald Leaf Cowl uses just 1-2 hanks of the baby alpaca, fine merino and mulberry silk mix.

Emily quotes, “Simple, quick and will flow through your fingers because the yarn is so soft and luxurious, you don’t want to put it down…”

Happy Thursday!

This week we have a hat featuring HiKoo’s® KenzieCrosshatch, designed by Kristen Hanley Cardoza. It’s an easy-to-knit, easy-to-wear hat that shows off an unusual to work, but easy to remember, all-over cable pattern.

“I love the slightly jagged nature of the texture. It reminds me of drawings shaded with crosshatching, the little diagonal lines used to create the appearance of texture.” – Kristen
