Sweet Tart Scarf, Berry Cobbler Cowl, and Friend

First, an apology for not blogging as frequently this past month. Things in the studio have gotten intense in preparation for the holiday season on Etsy.

Valerie and I have been working hard to get things finished, priced, photographed, described, tagged, and listed on Etsy. Valerie's part is fairly easy. She just needs to sit around and look pretty while wearing things.

Well, that's not entirely true. She keeps me company and tells good jokes to keep me amused while I work.

Right now some things, like the items in this post, have had their photos taken and await descriptions to be written. I should also credit Valerie here for always having good suggestions about the written copy for product descriptions and being so good at coming up with names for things.

The first scarf is the Sweet Tart Scarf, so named because its colors are reminiscent of those yummy tart candies.

The second item is the Berry Cobbler Cowl. (You saw the commerical eyelash yarn and my hand-spun yarn in the last post.)

Valerie really loved wearing this one because it's so soft and cushy.

The cowl is long enough to wrap around your neck twice for extra warmth.

The final item doesn't have a clever name yet. Neither Valerie nor I can think of a good one because we are almost brain dead right now. It's crocheted from my lavender hand spun.

If you have a name suggestion, we'd love to hear it!

I'm loving Valerie! (and your beautiful knitted pieces too)... where did you find her?

Valerie was abandoned by a band of gypsies, found by an Ebay seller, and then sold to me.

She doesn't like to talk about her past much, but I think Valerie has some real stories to tell. She appears very elegant and refined, but there's a wild side to her.

Thanks for the compliments on my work, Cindy. I've been so busy making it all that there hasn't been time to make your pumpkin pie recipe yet.
