Heads Up!

  • Olga Buraya-Kefelian, hat back...
  • .....and front

Instead of starting this post with a bad pun ("we've been keeping this under our hat", or, "heading your way..."), let me just introduce you to the designer of our next book, Shibui Silk. Many of you, I'm sure, are already familiar with Olgajazzy's designs and blog, but for those who are new to her work, you're in for a treat.

Olga has come up with a collection of eight designs, using our three silk-based yarns, Staccato, Silk Cloud and Heichi, that are creative masterpieces! Her innovative construction techniques as well as her eye for what's current in the fashion industry are so apparent in each and every piece.

I will be previewing the eight garments, a cohesive collection of sweaters and accessories, in the next few weeks, and we'll have the book (and some new colors in the yarns) available for next spring. Be sure to watch for them!

I love the Foggy Hat, shown above, which is one of Olga's own pattern line. I am about to cast on a Merino Alpaca version for my daughter in Blush....this should hold me over until the publication of Shibui Silk!
