Cindy Taylor

Phoenix Bess
Unleash your inner diva with style plucked from the pages of today's fashion magazines. The Diva Tunic by Phoenix Bess features a dramatic collar and sexy, hip-skimming fit. The Tunic is fall's perfect counterpoint to leggings or pencil leg jeans. Wear it over a long-sleeved top, or with the matching opera length fingerless gloves and a little camisole. Also perfect as a daring little sweater dress, take it on the town with your favorite boots or flats.

The Josephine Fascinator is a cross between a hat and a hair clip embellished with feathers, flowers, or a veil. Fashionable women around the globe wear fascinators to cocktail parties, the races and weddings. Wear one anywhere you want to be noticed.

Qiviut (aka Qiviuk), "the luxest fiber known to knitdom, comes from the humble muskox that inhabits some of the most frigid regions of the globe. One animal produces just four or five pounds of this precious fiber in a single year.... Finer than cashmere and even vicuna, it is the Tiffany's of softness." (Diamonds from the Arctic by Linda Cortright, Yarn Market News, June 2007.)
Baby Knits and Baby Crochet

Lois Daykin brings us 40 new designs for baby 0-24 months, in two new books, to knit or crochet.
