Natural Fibers Go “Techno”

I recently finished this simple but striking scarf using a yarn made from baby alpaca, silk, and extra-fine merino called Techno. It has a gorgeous, luminous grey color and a delicately fuzzy texture. I really love these fibers! I came up with this minimalistic design for something interesting yet basic. This scarf is available now at my shop on Etsy.

Merino Wool Cowl

Available now at my Etsy shop! I love the colors in this little merino cowl, and I loved every minute of knitting it. Cozy and soft, but not too bulky, this will be a great piece for spring and fall, and any other time you just want to keep the chill off.

Pure Merino Wool Scarf ‘Redwood Forest’

Here is a new piece I just finished, my ‘Redwood Forest’ scarf in pure soft, squishy Merino wool. I had a great time designing this one. I used two different yarns, both in hand-dyed Merino wool, to evoke the feeling of looking up into the branches of a giant redwood tree.

Natural Baby Alpaca Kerchief-Shawl

The natural cocoa color of this undyed baby alpaca is just yummy. I knit this triangular scarf/shawl/kerchief with a touch of open-work for interest, keeping it cozy without being too heavy. Super soft–a great versatile piece for anyone! Available now at my Etsy shop, ChristopherKnits.

Extra-fine Merino Wool “Owlet” Scarf

I almost kept this one for myself… Super-soft merino wool, kettle dyed in beautiful tones of brown that make me think of a baby owl, or a fawn hiding in the woods. What else can I say? I loved making this scarf and I know anyone would love wearing it. Available now at Etsy.com!
