new knits

It probably seems as though I have knitwear fever at the moment, but you know, I kind of do! I live in an exceptionally drafty apartment. Since I can't live in the southern hemisphere this winter, I have to pile on sweaters and deal with having a very cold nose.


Thrifted stag head sweater (which makes me think of this post on the Cowichan sweater of Vancouver Island)


I posted a photo of the vest from Granted, and since I couldn't have the vest, I ordered the deer purse. It won't keep me warm, but it is so sweet.

Tara-Lynn, who is an absolute sweetheart, sent me one of her Meaford cowls as an early birthday present. I adore it! I have quite a few knits from Tara-Lynn and I am firmly on her team. They're the best. (Please disregard my ragged fingernails; I need a manicure.)

It would seem that Rhiannon also has knitwear fever! And I think she's right; the girl from this post is probably just wearing a really big scarf. Still, my new cowl produces the same effect.

I probably won't write another post in the next little while, and I send you all very warm holiday wishes! xo

  9. I adore that sweater so much. I've been meaning to get an ugly Christmas sweater(s?), but that one is so beautiful and significantly classier. Bravo!
