Glitzy Glam

Posted in General at 11:38 pm by royalempress

Ladies and Gents,

I proudly introduce to you a fabulous scarf that can’t wait to meet its recipient. Meet Glitzy Glam.

Noro Striped Scarf
4 balls: Silk Garden Lite #2015 & 2017, Aurora # 5 & 6
US 6 needle

Also known as the Noro Striped Scarf seen here on Brooklyntweed’s site. Jared suggested soaking it in fabric softener to give it a more pleasant feel. I think since it’s Silk Garden Lite and not Kureyon, it’ll be fine. I decided to give it a little feminine touch by adding Noro Aurora to Silk Garden Lite. Can you see it shine and shimmer? You like? I like 😉

I have enough Silk Garden laying around to attempt this next number. It should be stunning… if it ever gets done.

3 Christmas gifts down, BLANK more to go….

New Findings

I came across this designer the other day [Lily McNeal]:

I like her knits since they are simple and straight and to the point. Thank goodness they are so I can knit my own. I mean, I don’t have $300 to spend on a (very nice, soft, cuddly) sweater. Even if it is made of cashmere. Mmmmmm cashmere *drool*.

I think I’m going to knit the cable hooded sweater vest on the cover of knit simple with Paton’s Upcountry. For some reason, I can’t seem to find this stuff in abundance anywhere. Oh well. I’ll have to buy up whatever I can find. I’ll be sure to post pics when it’s done. In my dreamworld, it will be done by next month. I know…that was funny HA!
