your heart may be cold, but your neck will be warm.

i have just finished and photographed a veritable heap of crocheted neck warmers. if you are the type of person who likes to peruse woolens on the internet, you can ogle here.

these tracheal cozies will be available at the upcoming love and rummage trunk show, next saturday's artists' flea market (just confirmed) and then at the good catch general store in toronto. if you live out of town, and one of these guys catches your fancy, feel free to get in touch. i can provide you with things like measurements, fibre contents (they are all natural) and shipping quotes.

what better way to say i love you in the middle of winter that by warming a throat? it sure beats candy hearts and stuffed bears with glossy hearts sewn to their hands.

also, i know that katharine is still looking for a few vendors for next sunday's flea market. perhaps you are interested?

oh becky-- you will be happy to know that I now have to make all my plushtaches with an international destination out of 100% wool-- it is much easier to classify under nafta and makes life much cheaper and easier at the border.

wool wins! yeah for wool!

effing wool

i restrained myself from pointing this out on sunday.

but as much as i love wool, i don't think nafta should be making aesthetic choices.

Have you thought about making some of these for children? I think it would have to be velcro instead of buttons (choking hazard) but you could do some cute stuff.
I always worry about my daughter and her super long scarf, one of these would tuck nicely into her crazy pink coat.
