Ginger neckwarmer, originally uploaded by Urbanknit.

Neckwarmer, snood, cowl, cuff, scarflette. Goes by so many names but is a really simple idea. Something that keeps your neck warm without getting in the way, falling off or getting lost.

I like to make them in chunky 100% merino wool. I have been experimenting with varying the stitching to give added texture. More here and here

Maroon chucks

Isn't this so cool? Colours and textures are so rich. Have a look at more interesting photography by Shelagh Duffett of Broomhill Pictures

This store in London is one of favourites. The Liberty store stands out in London's west end mainly because it is the only Tudor building for miles! It has a fabric, haberdashery and yarn section which I aways go straight to. It also has a great collection of fashion accessories by both established and upcoming designers which are always fresh and interesting. Of course there are many many other departments but these are my favourite.

The history of the store and the building are quite interesting. One of the things I found most fascinating was that the timbers used in the building where salvaged from two ships HMS Impregnable and HMS Hindustan. Imagine that! Talk about recycling.

The store was the creation of Arthur Liberty started in 1875 and stands where it has always stood. Definately worth a visit if you are in London.
