Shimmering scarves - seasonal specials:)

OK, so it's almost winter, Christmas just around the corner - time to bring that festive shimmering to your wardrobe. I usually go with greys, but this year I've opted for more seasonal colors: red and green. And I went for things I like most - a big cozy scarf, a ruffled wrap and one more simplicity triangle shawl.

Now, I just love this one. It's big, cozy, structured, shimmering and gorgeously green. Too bad my camera just won't catch the color right. It's emerald. Deep juicy emerald. A tricky color, even the producer's photo on their website is off.

The other color photographs much better - it's amaranth red. Also with a shimmering yarn. I used it to make two items: a Simplicity scarf and a Fiver (both my own designs).

Simplicity is a triangle scarf with lace edging, you've seen a few of those here. It's great for winter to keep your neck warm and look stylish. I also wear it indoors, on the shoulders, it works great in cooler rooms.

Fiver is probably my favorite winter shawl - it's easy to knit (I promise I'll write the pattern down one day), easy to drape, feminine and just a bit different than ordinary shawls and scarves.

So these are the latest additions to the shop, but I have other fivers there, too. This one is slightly larger, the same yarn, but a different color - ecru.

And this one is made from different yarn, without the shimmer, but it has a few rows of beads added:)

That's quite an update, right? I feel a bit excused for being so quiet for such a long time:) Oh, one more thing - I'm running a Xmas sale in the shop. Enjoy!:)

Still here!:)

And the award to the worst blogger ever goes to... ME!!!

Well, I've been busy creating, so I hope you'll forgive me. But I'm still here, I'm still designing, and I'm still knitting. And the shop is still here, so today just one quick update: I'm running a sale for early Christmas shoppers - KnitsDeLuxe 30% off

Have a look at all items in the shop - there are new lace shawls not only for brides, there are winter scarves for those who like to keep warm, skinny scarves for fashionistas and much more. And there will be new items soon - I'm working on them right now.


And keep an eye on the blog - I'll try to tell you more about what I've made recently:)

A quarterly?

Can a blog become a quarterly? Apparently, yes. I just logged in and went into a slight shock - over three months since the last update? How is that even possible? I've made so many nice things then, so how come I forgot to show them here?

Czy blog może stać się kwartalnikiem? Najwidoczniej. Zalogowałam się i lekko zdziwiłam, że nie pisałam ponad trzy miesiące. Jak to możliwe? Przecież w międzyczasie zrobiłam tyle fajnych rzeczy? Czemu ich od razu nie pokazałam?

(Actually, I shouldn't pretend to be surprised. After all I am the laziest person I know;))

(Właściwie nie ma co udawać zdziwienia. W końcu jestem najbardziej leniwą osobą jaką znam;))

Anyway, here we go. Starting with the most recent thing. I'm playing with shapes. This "fiver" (as it's composed of five segments) is trying to be a semicircle. And it's doing pretty well. It's a typical winter wear - a shawl, wrap or scarf (I can't decide on one), 150x57 cm, no lace, 25% mohair. Nice, warm and cozy

 No dobrze, to lecimy. Zaczynając od najnowszej rzeczy. Bawię się formą. Ten "piątak" (bo zbudowany jest z pięciu segmentów) próbuje udawać półkole. I całkiem nieźle mu to wychodzi. To typowo zimowe coś - szal, chusta, otulacz (nie mogę się zdecydować jak go jednoznacznie określić), 150x57 cm, żadnych ażurów, 25% moheru. Przyjemny, ciepły, przytulaśny.

Another fiver is a bit different. This is in plain color, so I went for a twist with beads and ruffle. Came out quite nice, I think.

Drugi piątak jest nieco inny. Tym razem z jednobarwnej włóczki, więc "doprawiłam" go koralikami i falbanką. Myślę, że wyszło całkiem fajnie.

Number 3 is totally different. Safety first, so let's go crazy with some high-visibility color. Great thing for winter, especially if you spend it in snow:) And it's long (2.5 m) so there's plenty to wrap.

Numer 3 to coś zupełnie innego. Żarówiasta zieleń, żeby było ją dobrze widać na śniegu. 2,5 metra, więc jest się czym owinąć.

And finally a classic model in a new color. Dark rose (even prettier than in the photos).

A na koniec jeden z popularniejszych wzorów, tym razem w nowym kolorze. Ciemna róża - w rzeczywistości jeszcze ładniejsza niż na zdjęciach.






That's enough for now. I'm drowning in yarn, so there will be more to show soon. I promise I'll try not to keep you waiting:)

To by było na tyle. Włóczki mnie przysypały, więc wkrótce znów będę się chwalić nowościami. Obiecuję, że postaram się nie czekać aż tak długo, jak ostatnio:)
