Knitted Neck Warmers, a.k.a. Snoods

Burberry Prorsum Milan Autumn/Winter 2009 collection
- that neck piece is actually fur, not knitting.
This is a very easy look to duplicate at a more inexpensive cost.

Check out a new trend featured on Elle UK. These are easy to make as well, with a circular knitting needle and your favorite chunky yarn.

Beautiful New Free Patterns at Berroco

"Drift" cardigan pattern, knit with Vintage yarn. Vintage yarn is an acrylic, wool, nylon blend. You can either view the pattern online, or download it as a .pdf file. I like the colors "Fennel" and "Sloe Berry".

"Tarte" tank knitted in Mica yarn, which is a cotton, silk, nylon, linen blend. This yarn is sturdy and has a nice sheen to it for added dimension. I like the colors Vivianite and Abalone, in this particular yarn.

Please note that these patterns are not intended for beginner knitters. They are both at the intermediate level.

Beautiful Knitted Details on High Heels

Restricted Dynamic Woven Slingback Platform available in sizes 5 - 8, and in two colors. They remind me of the high fashion label Missoni, and can be considered a knockoff, by some. I am not a fan of stacked wood grain heels, but I adore the wood grain heel and platform design on this particular shoe. These shoes are really one of a kind, and are extremely hard to find. The knitted design is almost never available on most websites. Believe me, I have looked. I actually found these first, and then found the high fashion version.

Here is the Missoni designer version, which is also stunning. However, I personally prefer the previous because it looks a little more feminine and delicate.

Here is the same design in a pump, which I would love to own. I do like the sculptural heel. This is a very modern shoe. Find the designer shoes at Zappos Couture.
