New Threads Friday: FISHER LASSIE
Blue & Green
These days when it’s still so chilly I’m still wearing a hat inside means I’m also tripping on the internet to fend off ze Cabin Fever.
Right now there’s lots to look at – Fashion Week in Milan for Fall 2015 just wrapped up and I’ve sampled the shows – been busy making some lookbooks for later on Pinterest but mainly just enjoying and absorbing all the intense creativity from the runways.
I read this comment about the Armani show in the New York Times – “Truism: Sweaters are even more comfortable when they’re blue or green.”
Right now, my Stockinette fixation has progressed to a Basic Chic Hoodie in…lovely Turquoise…or as it says on the label: DUCK EGG which has always been one of my favorites. Just maybe, they’re right! I certainly am mesmerized and calm while I’ve been knitting this.
And as we all know, here at Studio Chic Knits, at some point every sweater gets a turn on the fit mannie. :)
Into the Wild: one of my favorite things is to see all the wonderful gear knitting folks wear to go play in the chill.

Abigail and her adorable daughter Lillian joined all the activities throughout the week at the Fiber & Friends Retreat and delighted everybody with their smiles! This time, we were all hiking in our knitwear – it’s a little chilly out there on the glacier but we’re cozy!
