Oh baby

These precious baby sandals are from a new Debbie Bliss book, The Knitter's Year. The book is packed with a variety of small projects that make great gifts. Or, the book would make a very nice gift for any knitter from novice to experienced.

Chunky Cable

This is a picture from a recent Allure magazine showing the Prada headband that I wanted to highlight in my last post. For those of you who don't like to wear hats but hate cold ears, this should be your next project. Very simple, very of the moment.

Chunky Cable Sweaters

This look by Prada for Fall 2010 has been showing up everywhere. My "runway to realway" advice is to choose one chunky cabled piece per outfit. But I think this serves as inspiration. If you are not up for knitting an entire sweater, notice her headband. It is a great way to incorporate the trend in your fall wardrobe with minimal investment in time and money. I hope to have a better picture of this headband soon- please check back.

Simple Shapes

I love this sample that came in today. It is a pattern from the Tahki book, Seaside Tweed. It is knit in Coast, a heathered wool/cotton blend. It is such a simple shape but so effective. I can see it with a skirt, jeans or even over a dress. I am definitely wearing this tomorrow!

Pretty Little Dress

This is just so pretty. A customer knit it for her friend's new baby girl. What a beautiful gift. It is Blossom from Louisa Harding's book, Bizoo Bizu and knit in Louisa Harding's Aimee.
