Fashion Inspiration: Bonnie Parker

Ok, so I'm not looking totally like Bonnie Parker, but I have had her on my mind lately, particularly Faye Dunaway's portrayal. I caught part of Bonnie & Clyde on TCM the other day and was in awe of how totally sheik her clothes were. Really, it was more of a 60's version of Bonnie, but it works all the same. It's hard not to love her pencil skirts, jumper sweaters, berets, and snazzy kerchiefs.

Right now I'm totally excited about my new "shawlette" or kerchief (whichever you prefer). I just finished knitting it and now it just needs a good blocking. I predict it will be my favorite fall accessory. I'm also donning a thrifted skirt that I refashioned a bit. Perhaps a little too many gathers for my taste, but I LOVE the matching belt.

My next knitting project, I think, will be an homage to Kate Beckinsale's hat in Cold Comfort Farm. I'm watching it right now to figure out how I'll make it. Any suggestions?? -S

Cute Post!

By way of apology for not being terribly active on the blog lately, I thought you might enjoy these incredibly cute pictures. Somehow I feel like this explains my life these days: Knitting & Animals. I look forward to hearing my bro-in-law, Tom, say "CAAA-UTE!" And I promise more crafty posts to come. -S

Happy Feet

These little cuties were made for my dear friend Janie's b-day. I had fun with the colors and think they suit her very well.... and hope she can find some use for them down there in Texas, where wool on the feet isn't needed most of the year. I've been on a knitting frenzy these days and will hope to post even more finished projects soon. Cherrie-O!!! - S
