A week or so ago, Kelly (of “Kelly’s”, the boutique down the block) walked into the shop with a copy of Woodland Knits by Stephanie Dosen. It’s a dreamy little book filled with enchanting, fairy tale-like knitted accessories for grown ups.
Usually, this would not be my sort of thing, but I was truly captivated by the ethereal charm of this little book. I was smitten in equal measures by the photography, the styling and the magical little projects. Kelly was undertaking Mr. Fox Stole My Heart, which I find to be a true delight! I may just knit one for myself. It’s clever, cute, practical and, because of it’s diminutive size, the perfect venue for luxurious yarns.
Of course the little creatures are irresistible, but I think the faun-like accessories are gorgeously understated and possess a naive elegance. Worked in soft earthy neutrals, these lovely pieces are imminently workable and could gently be worked in to a big-girl wardrobe.
