Back to the Future

Getting back to more of that new inventory for the upcoming fall shows.  This is still all stuff I finished week before last, I just haven't gotten to photograph any of the stuff from this week yet.  Besides, I didn't want to skip these goodies.

 This hat is wonderfully soft and squishy.  I'm thinking it might need a small brooch or little bit of sparkle  right at the pinch.  The picture doesn't do the richness of the purple shade justice, it is really a lovely shade.
 This bright blue gem is bouncy, squishy, soft and fun all rolled in to one.  The basic spiral lets the lovely color of the yarn take center stage.  This cowl is long enough to wrap twice, as shown below.  Even though it s a wool blend, it is soft enough to go against the delicate bare skin of your neck.
I really can't wait to get modeled pictures of both of these items as well as all the new pieces from this week.  I have 2 more cowls and 3 more hats that I need to share with you and another hat in progress.  I am working on beefing up the mens inventory so today I made a nice soft black and grey beanie in a very basic stitch pattern and I am working on another in a large rib.  I'm using Three Irish Girls Lindon Merino in Flynn for both these hats and it has been a real pleasure to work with.  Some yarns just glide through your hands easily and others don't.  This one is definitely worth its price tag.  If you are a knitter and have never worked with Three Irish Girls, I encourage you to check out their yarns.  They are popular for a reason.

Believe it or not, I have managed to keep the studio clean ALL WEEK.  That is an amazing feat for me and I hope to continue the trend.  Hopefully if I hold myself accountable here that will help.  I really love to walk in and sit down at a totally clean desk and be able to start a project fresh with no stress about other things waiting to be picked up or put away.  I am just also very good at clutter.  If you have a quick organizational or cleaning tip on how you keep your creative space picked up, feel free to leave it in the comments!  I am totally open to your suggestions.
