I like black and white, reminds me of yin - yang and the ballance we all need in our lives. I thought of designing an easy-to-make jacket, but I wanted it to be a bit beyond the basics. Instead of using someone's knitting skills, I thought of using 2 colors and 2 basic stitch patterns: stocking stitch and garter stitch patterns, as well as my inspiration. I tried to minimize seems and buttonholes (there is only one), in order to make this pattern even more easy. I guess you can use other colors than the ones I did and I can think of many color combinations that would match the pattern's style, such as: navy blue and light beige, dark green and ecru, burgundy red and cream... I would also recomend same color in two tones combinations, such as: brown and beige, black and dark grey, dark red and burgundy red... Have fun when you pick up colors and let your imagination free. If you need my help or oppinion, just mail me! I hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing my jacket!

R: Hi everyone, I'm Rosa! E: ... and I'm Emmy. Since I'm the elder sister, I'll start first presenting my younger sister's work. R: Fine! But I'll break in whenever I feel like it! E: Ok! One morning some time ago, Rosa woke up and felt inspired to make whimsical jewelry! Little by little she added different materials and created impressive combinations. R: Emmy loves to knit. Her technique is so good, that you can hardly tell it's a hand-knitted item. Somehow she manages to add the "handmade sense", though... E: Rosa has brilliant ideas and exceptional skills when handling materials and colors. She creates beautiful and feminine compositions for the jewelry she designs. She experiments and succeeds in difficult combinations and new forms. R: Emmy has an unlimited imagination. She adds passion to anything she does; she focuses on her work and does not stop until she reaches perfection. E: Rosa is a master in organizing everybody's work and time. She offers the time and energy that are precisely needed â??never more, never less- to make well done, cozy and unique creations. Still, the most important "ingredient" she adds is her positive thoughts and her love. R: Well said! This counts for Emmy as well! This is actually what we offer: all the things we love to make with our hands, with loving love from us to you. Enjoy them!
