As is often the case, I found Oat Couture, this week’s Site of the Week (perhaps should be reconsidering and changing that to ‘of the Month’!!!!), while browsing in cyberspace and ‘happened’ upon it, unexpectedly. (sorry, photos removed from Fickr)
I was over at Karpstyles where my new blog-bud Jackie presides, all the way from the Northwest Territories of Canada (already snow there!!!) . Included on her knitting pattern page were some lovely sweaters from Oat Couture.
I was intrigued by the company’s name and impressed by the designs, so decided to check out the Oat Couture site. I was not disappointed.
There is something homey/casual and at the same time classic about their designs. I now think Oat Couture is not only a catchy name for a company to have; in this case it is also most appropriate. This photo, just one example of their pretty and practical patterns. I just loved this beret and scarf and what a great color blend too!
If you are looking for some new yarn inspiration, make sure to stop by. It’s certainly worth a browse. 🙂
