I recently picked up my knitting needles again. I know you can go buy a scarf at any store for twenty bucks, but there is something special about a handmade piece. It is lovely to know that every stitch is created by hand, a special rhythm of loops with two sticks practiced till it becomes automatic. The end result, a ball of string turned into a lovely sensuous piece of cloth.
I have been working in bold summer colors, light, and airy yarns. To add some whimsy, I have sought out fun vintage pins that scream Florida in a quirky way to pair with the scarves. Ladybugs, flamingos, butterflies, and turtles adorned in rhinestone bring out the joy in any woman, and lighten up the mood of any outfit.
