Family Business Collection

Our family is dominated by women. It’s so much fun to see all these different type of women gathering together, showing different personalities and resembling each other.
All four of them ordered something handmade for this fall. They all have their own style, they all know what they like and they are not afraid to express their special ideas. The result is a bunch of designs, all different as women can be, but all practical and feminine.

Laura Cowl
is for my oldest daughter. She’s already a teenager, claiming to be
adult, and refusing to wear childish colors like pink or purple. She needed something that shows that II take her seriously, so I made
her a gray cowl. To compensate the serious color I decided to use some luxurious yarn with cashmere and silk content - she already knows how to take care of such a garment.
The cowl is textured, the different sections give it a lively rhythm.
It knits up quickly and due to the pattern changes you won’t get bored.

Noemi shawl
It’s a classic shawl, knitted from top down with many-many increases. The lace is rather tricky, as it’s knitted on the wrong side too. The beads make the shawl extra special.
Release: November 2014

Dorothy shawl
is for my youngest daughter, using a unique shawl structure: it is made sideways, and the changes in the lace pattern form the shape of the shawl.
I offer 3 different sizes, so that it can be an adult wear too.

Release: 2014 September

Esther shawl
The body of the shawl is a simple striped stockinette, and the lace
adds the feminine touch. Despite looking complicated, this shawl is a great lace project for those who are not experienced in lace knitting.

Releasing date: October 2014
