Stephen West strikes again.
I’m not sure if there is anything about this pattern that I don’t like. Manos Maxima is like a nicer, more vibrant version of Malabrigo Worsted; soft, squishy, warm, and with great stitch definition. I personally like Maxima more. I feel like Maxima has a better selection of colors and the colors themselves are better dyed and don’t bleed.

5. Bright-Hand Woman Flat from Modcloth:
I love the color, the gold detail, the woven sides, the open-toe… all of it. Also they’re only $33. These are definitely sitting in my shopping bag right now!
4. Refine Mint Dress from Modcloth:
Pleated bottom, textured top, cute belt. So cute.
3. This great magenta blazer from LionsManeVintage:
Complete with padded shoulders. I love everything about this.
2. Gertibaxter‘s Mint Green Infinity Scarf:
Stripes + mint green? Sign me up.
1. Maybe I like these colors so much because they remind me of watermelon?
Or yummy things in general?
p.s. I love Design Seeds!

5. This beautiful cowl/scarf hybrid from Quince & Co.
Scarves are such a bore to knit, but I absolutely love this.
4. Another cowl, this time crocheted!
This pattern is part of a new collection from Hill Country Weavers! I love it so much. That yellow is so my color.
3. A O-Sway Skirt in Blue Skies from Modcloth.
A O-Sway Skirt in Blue Skies
I love a classic A-line skirt but wow, are they hard to find in stores! Leave it to Modcloth to have exactly the right thing and have it be perfectly beautiful. This is sitting in my shopping bag!
BMO iPhone Case
I’m due for a phone upgrade so I’m hesitant to buy new cases, but ummmmmm I need this.
1. Speaking of which…

I love going through my friend activity on Ravelry to see what they’re all making. I have a really fantastic core of knitters and crocheters in my friends list… just check out some of this stuff they’ve made recently!

I need more time to knit! Maybe I should just schedule it into my weekly routine… hmm, that’s a good idea!

On Sunday, September 30th, Hill Country Weavers hosted a lovely trunk show and slideshow with the talented Stephen West! His patterns took off on Ravelry after publishing the Boneyard Shawl, and he established himself as a knitwear designer with the immensely popular Clockwork shawl. He now has three pattern collections, a variety of collaborations, and lots of great new stuff in the works!
I managed to snap some pictures of his samples (and ours!) and talk while at the shop today:
