Mini Honeycomb Scarf Purl Soho

Our Mini Honeycomb Scarf takes a cue from natures most extraordinary engineers, busy little bees, of course, and transforms their genius into a beautiful, lofty, waffle-y swath of fabric, far from the sticky buzz of its inspiration.

Mini Honeycomb Scarf | Purl Soho

A classic knit consisting of a delicate 2-stitch cable pattern, this honeycomb texture is not difficult to create, but it does appear wonderfully intricate and very how-did-you-do-that!

books, bubble tea, and eyeshadow angry chicken

20181006_100722_resized

This photo was going to be the adorable bubble tea we ordered but it's of a book instead. The bubble tea photo was deleted. 

We were so delighted to try MILK+T a bit back, before their grand opening. It is delicious and unusual in that you can customize your sweetness, and add all your on toppingswhich I want to call bottomings, because it's boba, jellies, and items that sink to bottom of the tea. Hard packed ice-cream is on top and they are served in these glass bottles you can take home and bring back for refills. Pretty great.

We are in full show mode in the house, each girl has a production they are in, all different, and then my Nutcracker show I am sewing for, so that's 4 shows all by the beginning of December. I love the energy and buzz. This week I am designing the Spanish dancers, but was interrupted sewing Bollywood style mens' tunics and pants for another studio, which was so fun. All the trims! I can't believe I get paid to do this.

  • I am now really committing to creme eyeshadow. Cream? Let's go with creme. I love eye shadow, but a few years ago had to admit it didn't love me. My whole eye make-up game has been changing. I am using a lot less, no liquid liner on top anymore. For now, anyway. It just makes me look more tired. I love subtle color on my eyelidsneutrals, to combat the yellow/purple weirdness that is normally there, but powder was just sitting in a not-good-pro-wrinkle way. I am fine with wrinkles, I just don't like celebrating them. I busted out my trusty MAC Paint Pot in Painterely, which I love so much and had forgotten about, and it was perfect just as a shadow. I searched a bit more and bought a really nice...
