Knit-Wit

Yeah, I know that the cold weather only last for about a week here in H-town, but these lovely scarves by Houston designer Olga Tarasova make me want to bundle up!





Olga's scarves are hand-felted and dyed, which make them not only warm and cozy, but awesome to look at as well. The texture of felted scarves is such that they tend to be more sculptural and rigid that your standard neck wrap...which makes wearing them like wearing artwork! In fact, Olga's scarves can be found at the Asher Gallery at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

And if you're feeling crafty but not so cold, Olga also hand-spins amazing art yarn as well.



Olga's scarves, art yarn, felted journals, and other goodies are available at her Etsy store, Cherdak. And if you're more of a hands-on shopper, try on the scarves at HCCC.
