This design was designed in memory of my amazing mother.  She loved flowers and gardening.  Roses remind me of her and her beautiful personality.  I miss her so especially around Christmas time which was the perfect time to bring this design back.  My mother loved Christmas and made it such a special time for all of us.  You will notice many of my designs are embellished with roses, this is the reason.

Floral Twist Accent Scarf…dreaming of the warm days of Spring!

The Floral Twist Accent scarf…dreaming of the warm day of Spring coming our way, eventually!  It is so very cold here today and for the next few days and I couldn’t help but look forward to the warmer days of Spring.  Seems to be such a long winter this year and I am impatiently waiting for warmer days of Spring and Summer.  I love the look of Winter, but not the cold!  I have become a Winter wimp!

To break out for a moment of warm relief this week I was busy designing a nice light acceent scarf that I could wear during these cold days to warm my thoughts of the coming Spring.  I started with designing a new base for my scarf.  I wanted something that looked like it was twisting, but could lie flat.   This gives the essence of a vine twisting and turning up the lattice, in this case your neckline, with the leaves adding the movement and twists along the way.  I used a beautiful hand painted merino wool of blues, greens, purples an hints of yellow.  If  you look closely at the bark on trees, vines or other greenery you see many different colours that combined.  I love using hand painted yarns as they add a special unique touch to each piece I make as they are never the same from skein to skein.


The Floral Twist accent scarf can be worn in many different ways and be used to dress up your favourite T shirt, sweater, shirt, or jacket.  A touch of bling in the glass button adorns each flower.  Various purples were used to make the 3 different flowers on this design.  There will be a cotton version as well in neutrals and bright and bolds to warm the day.

Warm up your day and think of the coming Spring!  Have a great one!

I love Roses…new designs

Eclectic Rose Collar Scarf Purple

They are likely my favourite flower of all.  So many colours to choose from with different characters and beauty abounding from their leaves and petals.  I especially love the aroma they share, it is soft and delicate and oh so lovely.  With roses in my mind I decided to design a style that was different than my Rose Onie Collection, a classic and sculptural collection.  The new Rose inspired collection is called the Eclectic Rose, the collar scarf shown in the pictures.  A brighter yarn collection with a more modern and eclectic look to the design.

The bases are made with 2 strands of yarn one of Malabrigo Worsted Merino and one of Malabrigo Rios Hand Painted Merino Wool.  I love working with more than one strand of yarn as the outcome adds more texture and a unique colour way when combined.   The roses on these three scarves are made with Sublime Aran weight Merino, Cashmere and Silk yarn.  It is wonderfully soft and I love Sublime’s colours, they are fantastic.  The leaves are done with Diamond Yarns Luxury Aran Weight Merino Wool.  Another wonderful merino wool that eludes with amazing colour choices.

Using various yarns on one design is enjoyable for me as I love to see how they work together and what the outcome is in the end.  The style changes depending on what fibres and colours you are using on each piece.  Keeps it interesting and enjoyable, trying something new that I am inspired to do that day.  I love making Wearable Art pieces, there is a freedom in deciding with each piece what it should become even when I started with the same knitted or crocheted “canvas” I had designed before.  I can add a personal touch that I am inspired by or the customer is inspired by making it one of a kind.

Inspiration can come from anywhere, just let your mind see things in a new and exciting way.  Then turn it into something new for you to enjoy or share with others.  I must warn you it is addictive!  Enjoy your day and try to see things differently today.  Find your inspiration!
