A fashion-stylist friend of mine got to go to a bunch of the shows for this year's Fashion Week. One of the first shows she went to was Pierrot, a knitwear designer. And in the gift bags, was a kit for a big holey scarf from Lion Brand. Since it seemed no one was really taking the gift bags home, she managed to combine a few of them together to make one huge gift bag. For me!

I have no idea what to make with Lion Brand suede, but I'll add it to my stash for now until a project comes to me. And look at those massive needles--Size US 50!

My friend also managed to score me another, really special treat from a different Fashion Week show, but more on that once I get my hands on it. But it's good... really good.


  1. My bf used that yarn to make some really cute teddy bears to give as gifts at baby showers. How come I can't have a friend that attend Fashion Week and bring me presents? I guess I'll have to settle for a bf that knits :-)

  2. Here's the link to the pattern he used:
    He actually used the same color turquoise. We bought a whole bunch of it at the Smiley's Yarn sale.
