When I designed this set, I was living in Saskatoon, which is nicknamed the "Bridge City," so this set takes its inspiration from the many bridges spanning the Saskatchewan River; and when I think of bridges, I think of the 1920s and Art Deco, so it's also got an early 20th century ambience. The cloche is designed to be worn low and at a bit of an angle, with the upturned brim giving it a jaunty feel. The unique construction of the scarf not only gives you a place to stick your hands to warm them up, but when wrapped around the neck twice, offers extra design intrigue.
SIZE: Scarf length 80 inches around, hat circumference 22 inches with positive ease.

For me, knitting and crocheting evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between. I dream about wool during the long Canadian winters, often waking from my sleep with visions of knittin’s dancing in my head.
Things I never leave home without: Chris, my handsome traveling companion, a knitting project, trusty e-reader, and a picture of my slightly obese cat, Ivan.
