Holiday Cheer

Cards for Knitters

If you're a knitter you've got to snag some of these adorable Knit note cards!

I think they're perfect for stamping and sending some holiday cheer.

The cards are even color printed on both sides.  With that in mind, I was thinking you could even cut up the cards  into tag shapes and make adorable gift tags for your holiday knit gifts.

Knittin' Note Cards

It pays to be a shopper...that's how I often find cute stuff.  I found these cards at Michaels.

If you want some knittin' note cards you better hurry down to your nearest Michaels.  You can find these cards in the Michaels bargain bins.  A pack of 8 cards is only $1.00.  Yes, you read that right! 

At that price,  I'm sure they'll be gone in no time!

All I Want for Christmas...is a Sophie Digard Scarf!

A Collection of Curiosities & Indulgences

Dear Santa Baby,

All I want for Christmas is a Sophie Digard scarf. 

(Preferably a blue one...hint hint!)

 Sophie Digard Scarf

I am in love with Parisian designer Sophie Digard's needle work.

On a recent visit to charming Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, I stumbled upon an adorable boutique called Piccolo.  Piccolo is filled with all sorts of curiosities and indulgences.  (That's even printed on their business card!)

Being a knitter, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful crochet and knit accessories on display in Piccolo.  The moment I saw the beautiful crochet scarf, I knew it had to be a Sophie Digard.  I was right.

I had admired Sophie's stunning scarves on the Internet.  I must report that they are even more lovely in person.  They are also very pricey...but if you're a needle worker you can certainly appreciate the amount of time and workmanship that goes into a scarf like Sophie's.  Her designs are beautiful floral crochet motifs crocheted in wispy and delicate yarns. 

Sophie Digard Purse

Sophie even has stunning purses!

Sophie's Work

I'm in awe of Sophie's work.

If Santa doesn't bring me a Sophie scarf, I guess I will have to become a more proficient crocheter!
