It's fall!

It's fall. Finally...

If you haven't had a chance to "enjoy" summer in Las Vegas, you don't know what real summer is all about. Well, some of my friends claim they do, but I believe our local summer is the most "summery" summer of them all. 120 exhausting degrees, no rains, no even clouds - and lots of orders for the cold season! :)

Good news is that we finally have fall! Yellow leaves appear here and there, winds begin to get fresh, bringing some slight relief...

I love fall! Those chilly mornings and sunny days, warm and bright colors of rust and gold, fantastic sunsets... Awesome!

And of course it's time to think holidays! All things pumpkin, spooky and yummy. This is what I have for the coming season.



Warm terracotta, soft green and yummy brown. Available in all children, teen and adult sizes. 

Not a fan of hats? Try this Jockey Hat!

Many colors, all the sizes available!

Something for your legs :)

I believe spring is the best time to try something new. New style, new attire, new hairdo - something unusual, even bold.

For this spring I've designed Laced-Up Knee Long Mesh Leg Warmers. They're made with very soft and silky eco-friendly yarn, totally adjustable and simply beautiful. :)

Of course, I'm thankful to my gorgeous model. :)

These Leg Warmers are available in many colors.

Spring Burst

Spring has really sprung. It's been really hot lately, time to clean up and refill my Etsy shop. All warm winter stuff has gone, and yesterday I began to upload new items. They're all light spring/summer accessories, natural, vegan and eco friendly.

What are they? First of all, I added new versions of my signature Newsboy Hat, now in bright and vibrant shades of earth, leaves, water and flowers.

The photo session was a pure joy: my friend is amazing, we went to a very beautiful place, the day was perfectly warm and sunny... and the ice cream afterwards was deliiiiiiiiiiiiicious!

Here is what I offer for spring:

All these hats (as well as descriptions and more pictures) are available in my Etsy shop for $29.95 with free US shipping.

It's spring. Finally! Everything is in bloom: rosemary, sakura, and even pines! Incredibly beautiful!

Lake Mead, Spring and New Knittings

Well, it's spring. We're lucky here in Vegas: this year we didn't have a single snowy day, and it didn't get extremely cold. Lots of rains, but we really needed them. Our poor Lake Mead (the only water reservoir for the area) has almost dried out without rains last years...

Since spring is here for everyone, even for those who struggle with snowdrift, it's time to look forward and think of coming holidays. I have something new for you, my friends! These cute thingies were created last night.

Knitted Ribbed Egg Cozy Hats:

Funny Bunny Gang:

They're all available in my Etsy shop, PDF patterns can be found there, too. :)

Slow Me, Mamma Mia and Wedding Collection

You aren't going to believe, but I just saw Mamma Mia. Yeah, I know I'm slow. :) I didn't want to watch it. I resisted. I didn't go to the Vegas show either...

Why? That's very simple. I LOVE ABBA. I enjoy their songs, I admire their fantastic energy, and I didn't wish to see all this ruined and spoilt, as it often happens (can you name at least one REALLY good remake?).

But I have to say: today it happened. And I LOVE this movie! Meryl Streep, I'd gladly give you all the Oscars in the world. You're incredible!.. Pierce Brosnan? Bad actor (imho, of course!), but oh God, he's handsome, and this black polo shirt and white pants... Colin Firth? I better stop here, or else... Lucky, Lucky Livia.. :)

Well, and now to the point. I'm starting to work on a wedding collection that appeared in my mind while watching. They will be all knit/crochet accessories, and I even have ideas for knit/crochet wedding gowns. What do you think? Crazy me? :)

Chinese New Year

It seems, everyone is thrilled about Chinese New Year. Vegas is traditionally bright and politically correct (gamblers gamers are always welcome!).

MGM's Lion is shining...

Bellagio's Conservatory is amazingly beautiful...

And I thought I had to offer my customers something to celebrate Chinese New Year. Something really good to make The Tiger smile. Here are my ideas:

* Safari Scarf and Beanie Hat Set:


* Ribbed Striped Beanie:

* Jockey Hat:

* China is impossible without good tea. This orange cup cozy will make the tea ceremony even better. :)

What do you think?

Sunshine to Everyone!

I just talked to my parents in Europe, it's -5 F over there. So cold, so slippery, grey and gloomy. Real winter... And it's very sad to see the "Snowmageddon" in Mid-Atlantics!

As for us, Vegas is shining as usual. Short morning shower is over, and the day is stunning. I'm sending our warmth and sunshine to everyone who needs them. Grab and enjoy! :)

February Twilight

I'm one of those (many) people who live in Las Vegas, but don't really like "Vegassy" Vegas. Madness of The Strip is too much for me, but all the rest is incredible! Mountains around the city, desert lakes, unbelievable sunsets, unique landscape...

This Treasury was inspired by the shades of Vegas twilights in February - some amazing mix of purple, pink, blue, and green.

Size Matters? :)

Being 5'2", I've always loved everything big. Big cars (oh, these huge American trucks, how much I want to try and drive one of them!), big men (it's so convenient to hide under my hubby's shoulder!), big dogs... Once I had an amazing Great Dane. He was the smartest and handsomest dog in the world, for sure...

And this is what I saw a couple of days ago in the park. They're irresistible, aren't they? :)

2010 Winter Olympics Accessory

Winter Olympics are approaching, and several days ago I received a wonderful custom order for an evid sports fan. :)

This cup cozy had to represent team colors (blue/yellow) and be as functional as possible. I used a wonderful wool blend yarn and a matching star button. The guy was really happy, feedback was fantastic.

If you know someone who would also like this gift idea, here is the link:
