I am so taken by these sweater scarves and scarf hats by Tou! That's right, the elongated sweaters are actually just scarves (not to be worn as sweaters), and the shorter vest looking ones double as unisex scarves that convert into hats. How genius! I've came across Tou via very cool blog called Grijs.

Pattern Magic Volume 2, Japanese Clothes Design Book, is what I'm waiting for, counting hours that is... One day last week my sister Yellena spotted it on Etsy, said I must have it, and she was right! I bought it from a very nice seller Pomadour's Craft Cafe. You can find all sorts of wonderful Japanese craft books there. Enjoy!

Works like these take my breath away... First two images are from Lisa Solomon. There's a nice interview with her on Crafty Synergy. Second two are from Angy, at Effie Girlie Finerie, encaustic and thread paintings. Angie has an upcoming show in April, in Portland, so check out her blog for more info. And last two images are from Diem Chau, whom I've found via Effie Girlie Finerie. Lately, I've been seeing thread everywhere, which only reminds me how much I have missed working with it.
