Chili Red Handknitted Scarf

I added a new scarf to my shop this week. Love the colors in this one! One strand is a gorgeous chili red. The other is a variegated yarn with red, purple, turquoise, olive and other gorgeous colors. I liked the yarn so much, that I bought more to make myself some socks!

Anyways, you can find the scarf listed here.

On the needles, more fingerless gloves. I just designed a new hat and another pair of fingerless gloves for spring. Then I need to get back to the bags and ipod sleeves.....

Okay, I'm Back!!

Oh my goodness...I can't believe it has been October since I have updated this blog!
I have been really good about keeping up with  my art blog....not so much here unfortunately. I am going to try my best to at least post new items here and a little about their inspiration. I'm not even going to try to catch up from the last few months!

Anyways, my latest is a pair of fingerless gloves. I am having a lot of fun knitting fingerless gloves with colorwork - a relatively quick knit and only a little fussy with the thumbs. I just listed these Royal Purple ones:

They are available here.

I think the design came from some Latvian mittens. I have been looking through my books lately and then came up with this idea, so I suspect it was sparked by something I saw in one of my Latvian mitten books. I love the richness of the colors - this is a gorgeous purple. And they are knitted in Elann's Peruvian Highland wool which is nice and soft. I hope they find a good home!

On the needles: more fingerless mitts. I am also finishing up a gorgeous scarf in a brick red color. I will be casting on a hat and cowl to work on this weekend while the kids are skiing.
