As I recall, this little blog began as a knitting blog.

Therefore, I couldn’t possibly call it fashion week without a little show and tell of the things I’d love to knit this spring.  Ravelry, the heart of my heart of websites, allows you to keep a running queue of patterns you plan to someday knit, a feature that is both extremely useful and extremely devastating, because it takes all of two hours to assemble a list that is probably longer that you’ll be able to knit in a lifetime.  I probably won’t knit all these things this spring.  But I’d sure love to.  Click links for pattern info!

I can hear these baby booties whispering our new niece Olive’s sweet little name.  Can’t you?

Coolest.  Sweater.  Construction.  Ever.

The color!  The beads!  The color!

I kinda want her whole outfit, really, but I’d settle for the sweater.

Someone has finally discovered how to knit sunshine!

This is one of those things I’ll knit and never wear.  I want it anyway.

To be worn only with flowers in your hair.  Obvi.

The perfect cardigan in the perfect color.

I’d belt this baby and wear it somewhere they sell cotton candy.

Tucked in to a high-waisted skirt?  Yes please!

Long and drapey versions of this necklace may become my entire accessory wardrobe.

Just for fun, leave me a comment with your name and your three favorite colors, and I’ll choose one of you at random and send you a handknit necklace of your very own.  We can be twinses!

    Fun! Any shade of blue or green. I know that’s only two colors but I’m pretty open to anything you pick out. =)I’m glad you’re writing on your blog again!

    I proudly where my yellow neck cozy everywhere and it has even gone international with me… but I am not too proud to get in on this action!! I love all fall colors (even though its nearly summer)
    BTW the 2 year clothes fast is coming to an end! What have I learned you ask? Imagination and, as I suspected, people through out a lot of good clothes. 🙂

    Oh my goodness. Such adorable things you have posted! My favorite colors are orange, yellow, and brown (I really love the colors of fall!) you are too cute, I would love to be your twin ha!

    First off, those baby booties are so adorable!! I also love the mustard yellow cardigan. Anyway, here are my favorite colors: green, yellow and pink (light pinks and rose colors).

  • Jeanne May 12, 2011 at 10:17 am

    I agree. I *love* the baby booties.
    My favorite colors would probably be in the blue/grey/green family… but please, I’m trying to go outside my comfort zone and wear other colors too. Should I win (fingers crossed) I’d love a necklace made with colors of your choosing.

  • Sarah Wetmore May 12, 2011 at 11:57 am

    You are wonderful!!
    My favorite colors are purple, blue and gray.
