fluevogs need new homes!

A bit random for this knitting blog, but since I know some of you are sure to be as into shoes as I am, I’ve got a couple of pairs of Fluevogs that I’d love to see go to loving homes!

destash: fluevog Soprano Katia

Soprano Katia in Teal/Olive, size 8 – these shoes are discontinued! Heel height is 3″. Gorgeous and comfortable with nice rubbery soles and sturdy stacked heel. Strap is elastic (doesn’t open). Worn only a couple of times. I actually LOVE these shoes but they’re too big :( SOLD!

destash: Fluevog Mini Zaza

Mini Zaza, in brown and green, size 7.5. Heel height 2.5″. Gorgeous and comfortable shoes with the signature Mini heel (hourglass shape) which is super sturdy! Sadly a touch too big for me. Worn only a couple of times, with an insole (so no wear inside the footbed). Excellent condition.SOLD!

If you’re interested drop me a line for prices (negotiable!) and any other info you might need!

destashing part 3: wearables

Last bit of destashing for just now – stuff that’s ready to wear!

Prices are in USD and include shipping to the US and Canada.

peacock squared scarf

Peacock Squared Scarf

A light and fun woven scarf featuring super soft, high quality hand-dyed yarns. Turquoise with just a bit of fuchsia in narrow accent lines.

Plain weave using Shelridge Farm Soft Touch Ultra (100% superwash merino wool) and Blue moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock (100% superwash merino wool). This scarf is machine washable, but for best results hand wash, dry flat.

12 inches wide by 84 inches long, including 7 inch turquoise knotted fringe.

Was $95, now just $55 USD.

milk and cream scarf

Milk and Cream Scarf – handwoven by me!
A light and fun woven scarf/wrap featuring Noro Silk Garden yarn.

Whites, creams and beiges shimmer in this wide wrap that scrunches up to wear as a scarf. This self-striping yarn produces subtle, skinny vertical stripes! Plain weave using Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn (40% Lamb’s Wool, 25% silk, 25% nylon, 10% kid mohair). Hand wash, dry flat for best results.

15 inches wide by 80 inches long, including a 6 inch knotted fringe.
was $105, now $75 USD.

galli scarf

Galli Tweed Scarf – A long silk tweed scarf featuring high-quality silk yarn.
Charcoal with multicoloured tweedy bits. Plain weave using Muench Sir Galli (100% silk tweed). Hand wash, dry flat for best results.

8 inches wide by 80 inches long, including 7 inch brown knotted fringe.
was $75, now $50 USD.

Organic Wool Raglan

“Cotton Raglan” from Melissa Leapman’s “Cables Untangled”, knit from 8 skeins of O-Wool worsted merino. Worn once or twice, but I made it too big for me! I can’t bear to rip it out.

$85 USD, or make me an offer (I won’t be offended if you rip it out for the yarn or something).

Bust: 38 inches
Upper Arm: 14 inches
Length from Underarm: 14 inches

scalloped bottom

lace nightie, back

“Lace Nightie” from an old Interweave, knit out of Alchemy Silken Straw (100% silk). Not at all a nightie but a cute layering piece, more of a cami! (Sorry for the old photos – there’s a front view here.) Worn maybe once or twice.

The size is a little tricky, it measures 29 inches across the middle but it’s a halter. Shown on me, 36″ bust. I think it’ll fit from about 32-36 inch bust. $50 USD, or make me an offer!

roundabout tank

Roundabout Tank from Knitting Nature. Knit from Nashua Natural Focus Ecologie Cotton. Worn once or twice. Would make a great vest in the fall! Bust is 34 inches. $40 USD or make me an offer!

I’ve started assessing and packing up some stuff – I’m planning on doing a slow move, with most of the important stuff (yarn) in plastic bins and some baskets. I’ve got the spinning stuff down to a single bin plus the wheels, fabric is all in one bin as well (plus the serger). Yarn? That’s more than one bin! Um, way more. But I’ve packed up pretty much all the loose skeins now so all of it can really just be put in the car and moved.

And I’ve been knitting a bit, but not much – this little cardigan needs just about an inch of sleeve ribbing. Sheesh! I love the smocked ribbing around the body.
