Ah, scarves, who doesn’t love scarves? What a great way to spice up an outfit and hide a less-than-stellar hair day. Also, as Benta studio proves, scarves make for real fun photo props in an adorable lookbook. I’m kinda bummed this website isn’t in English so I can figure out how to get my hands on one of these beauties.

I think we can all agree that Mondays can be rough, right? Yesterday, I woke up early to be productive but due to bad weather and a poor transportation decision actually ended up being late to work, couple that with some godaddy server issues, and a killer migraine, this particular Monday was shaping up to be pretty shitty. That is, until I opened an e-mail stating that one of my favorite brands, Steven Alan, now carries eyewear, yipee! I know it’s silly, but I am in the market for some new spectacles and am so pleased that I’ve got even more options, good options to boot.

Sometimes all it takes for a crappy day to get better is the possibility of a future shopping opportunity.

I’d like to take my profession of love for winter back because this spring project has got me real excited about nice weather, pretty dresses, flowers and sunshine, lots of it. Winter, I love you but I think you and I should take a break… it’s not you, it’s me.

So, I’ve dusted the cobwebs off this blog of mine and I bring you a fun little Spring shoot Anni and I worked on last week. We knew we wanted to work with florals again since we had so much fun the last time around. When brainstorming of what to pair with florals, I realized how fun it is to start digging through your closet at the start of a new season. Florals and pretty clothes, what a pair! A huge thanks to Elizabeth Cronin of Asrai Garden for providing the beautiful flowers, if you live in Chicago or are ever in the area, you have to stop by Asrai Garden, it’s the loveliest little floral shop on earth, I’m sure of it.

Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing a few more shots tomorrow…

I almost titled this post big ass knitting needles but decided not to, then I decided to stay true to myself and mention it in the body of the post instead.

Seriously though, I really want me a pair of humongous needles so I can make some awesome big rugs and finally have a reason to use super bulky yarn like this:

Also, if I could steal that outfit from the cutie above, that would be great as well.

Happy Friday, friends.

As promised, I am sharing with you the awesome photos I walked away with after the Dabble product photography class, aren’t they great?! We were told in advance to bring a few items to photograph and knew I just had to bring my newly-finished speckled hat. If you haven’t seen it yet, Hannah, the lovely lady behind Hetterson designed this gorgeous hat pattern for Frolic, and it was honestly the most fun I’ve had knitting. My husband says it’s his favorite thing I’ve knit and I’d have to agree with him. Thanks so much for sharing this gem Chelsea and Hannah!

I also brought my WIP to photograph, this is the start of my first set of mittens, wish me luck!

I gotta say, it’s gonna be hard to photograph my knitting projects at home now, I may have to enlist Erika and her studio’s help for all my knits, uh oh, this hobby of mine just became really expensive.
