Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right? This photo has been in my flickr favorites queue for a while. I love the contrast of colors, the warm design and the simplicity.

10: Advent

So, with a couple skeins of an alpaca + wool blend, I did my best to recreate the cowl. It is super duper soft and I’m pretty sure the very girly girl I’m gifting this too will adore it.

I’m additionally in the process of creating something similar to this. And dreaming of making one of these. And one of these. Oh flickr, you are a buffet for my crafty soul.

Blessing for today: the joy of creation.
