a happy day Friday January 22, 2010

TGIF! That’s right. We’re all about the weekend over here at Chez Chic.

It’s been a long slog through the M-F this time and we are ready to raise a cheer to a little respite.

The weekend beckons and with it a lot of progress — here’s our Aleita ready for action.

We love this color — I’ve been calling it Malted Milk but the actual shade is “Milk Chocolate” Shepherd’s Wool by Stonehedge Fiber Mill. We picked it up at Arcadia up on Lawrence a while back — and we wanted every color!

This is very beautiful merino, spun in our home state of Michigan, that knits up into a luxuriously soft garment.


I pressed the bottom of the piece to preview the finished fabric and ooh la la. We like! To finish it properly, it’s going to get a warm, sudsy dunk in a bath at some point, but we have a ways to go…

And that would be: straight to the grand opening of the new downtown Anthropologie store, housed in the very same building that houses ye olde day job! So very exciting (or catastrophic to my wallet) as the case may be!
