Outfit Ideas

When customers walk into our shop, they always comment on the number of knitted and crocheted samples we have. They say it's really inspiring to see sweaters, scarves, shawls, blankets, etc all finished and on display. There's just no comparison to seeing something in a picture and then seeing it made up. 

They love to touch and feel the samples--no doubt to check out the yarn we've used--and trying a sample on certainly helps them decide whether or not it will work for them. 

Do you ever make a new sweater and then find you don't wear it because you don't know what to pair it with? Don't be afraid to be bold with your outfits. Sometimes putting a hand-knit together with something that seems wrong, can be really RIGHT.

Here's a great example of a top and a sweater that you might not normally put together:
The gold sequined top is a bit fancier than the sweater, for sure. But the color and shimmer pick up on the yellow and brown tones in the Noro Silk Garden yarn, and then the perfect bronze necklace brings it all together. Just because you're wearing a gold sequined top doesn't mean you're going out on the town! Many stores are now selling tops like this for everyday wear, so don't be afraid of mixing it up.

We love it!
