In the past few months I’ve discovered (old news I know, but I AM OLD deal with it) Strega/Dark more fashion. Thank you tumblr.
One of the features of these styles I am in love with are a lot of the beautiful knit type items folks layer with. So, to that end, I’ve decided to make myself some of those because reasons.
I already crochet and have started a couple of my big giant shawls for myself. I have been looking into arm knitting as well.
I’m looking at making one of these shawls. I have a terrible wool allergy so a lot of the projects with the awesome huge chunky yarns have been inaccessible to me until, DUN DUN DUN… (affiliate links ahead)
Bernat Mega Bulky yarn. I saw this yarn not long ago and want it so bad. I love how it looks. I want to try it out.
Red Heart Boutique Twilight Yarn in Armour delivers the sparkle with no wool and that jumbo size.
Another favorite is Lion Brand Homespun.
Back to the Dark Mori. I’m SO into the idea because I love the idea and being that I’m outside a lot, I feel like it should work. That said, I’m terrible at it. I’m going to try harder this fall and winter. I think giving myself teh task of making myself some of the top/upper layer accessories will help get me started
I’m collecting up images and inspo and when I’ve got some more of my shit together I’ll post some of my actual outfit ideas.
I think I might have a little bulky yarn hidden in my stash and this weekend I’m gonna try to dig out some of my shawls for wearing.
Also in this cold weather fashion trend of mine, I’ll probably angst about my struggle with finding appropriate shoes that I can afford.
Are any of y’all crafty? Show me the stuff you make. I promise I won’t bite you if you’re cool.
Coming up soon, we’re gonna talk buying leggings, we’re gonna talk about Fall/Winter textures AND OMG I’m super stoked I’m gearing up for a quick and dirty guide for newly naturals.
I’m really excited about what’s happening in my new little blog here.
Thanks for visiting.
