Shop Notes: Monday Jan 25th 2010

Hi Dear Reader! Today I announced the winner of the Be My Valentine hair pin set over on my Facebook fanpage. Check it out, if you're not already a fan. It's just so wonderful to see new folks over there and to connect with people who support handmade. :)

Just a note to let you know that Fancybelle Boutique will be closed for a little bit starting tomorrow, January 26th, through possibly the first week of February. I'm having surgery this week and my helper will begin shipping orders out for me sometime in early Feb, depending on how my recovery goes.

Despite all of this, I still have new items in the works! Since I'll be housebound for 6 weeks, there will be plenty of time to knit! I have some gorgeous handspun fibers to work with, as a part of my new luxury Lady Belle handknit line. Think: ladies knitted cowls in Peruvian wool and chunky baby alpaca, plus some premium girls baby legs in alpaca and organic cotton. Bee-yoo-tee-ful!

The cowl pictured above was knit in baby alpaca. If you're not familiar with that fiber, it's warmer than wool and almost as soft as silk. Very cozy, yet non-itchy and lightweight to wear. My favorite! I'm one of those people who's always cold, so you gotta know I love alpaca. 

Also incoming in my Hair Adornments collection are fabric flowers attached to hairbands or clips. For spring, I'm hoping to work on a couple light wrap sweaters...perfect for pair with tanks and summer dresses on chilly evenings.

Take care and have a wonderful week!
