In the Studio: Carmen Camellia

Camellias are blooming in some places already. We saw some in SoCal when we were at the Mission San Juan Capistrano. It' a little a early for them in Oregon, but by next month they will be showing up.

I got inspired to make some camellia things. Valerie was so excited to model again. She claims she's been sitting around bored out of her skull.

Here she is, modeling a camellia toque and a camelia neckwarmer. Doesn't she look incredibly sweet and huggable? She looks like she's wearing a yarn collaboration made by Carmen Miranda and Frida Kahlo.

The toque turned another direction looks very different.

Neckwarmer the first.

Neckwarmer the second.

These are great! I like the neck warmer especially, and think that the toque looks great with the flowers over one eye. Another excellent job, Sharon!

They're all beautiful and elegant, Sharon! And Valerie does look sweet and huggable, though she generally doesn't strike me as the huggable type! ;-)
