Just in time for spring, tiny squares of ribbon add panache and flair to these transition-weight, hand knit scarves. Dress them up or down; wrap them around the crown of your hat.  Pair them with blazers, or wear them with tees and your favorite jeans.  You can tie ‘em, knot ‘em, loop ‘em or drape ‘em.  So light and airy, they are the perfect accessories to stash in your getaway bag.

While spring is blooming in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s soon to be fall in the Southern Hemisphere.  Beginning April 1st, Foxy G. will be shipping to Australia and New Zealand. To usher in the cooler weather, here are several Foxy G. originals.

And while, like my children, I love them all, I can’t help but feel a little bit partial to this stunning, three-season, monochromatic scarf that is made up of nine different textures.  Anyone have an idea of what I should name it?

All scarves shown above will be listed within the next week. If you want information about any of them sooner, please leave me a comment below or convo me through Foxy G. Knits on etsy.

One World One Heart – Magic Carpet Ride

One World One Heart BadgeWelcome to Foxy G. Knits Den of i-KNiT-quity, located in Atlanta, GA, Stop #113 on your Magic Carpet Ride.  You will have an opportunity to enter a giveaway in just a few minutes, but first, let me give you a quick tour of Atlanta:

Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola.  Coke is all they drink here, so don’t ask for any other soft drink unless it’s made by Coca-Cola.  Even if you want something other than a Coca-Cola, it’s still called Coke.

  • Our 8 AM rush hour runs from 6:30 to 10:30 a.m., and our 5 PM rush hour runs from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. Friday’s rush hour begins on Thursday afternoon and lasts through 2 a.m. on Saturday.
  • “Fixinto” is one word: I’m fixinto go to the store.
  • Sweet Tea is appropriate for all meals, and you begin drinking it when you’re two years old.
  • “Jeet?” is actually a phrase meaning “Did you eat?”
  • No need to buy a ladder or mattress in Atlanta.  Just go to one of the Interstates, and you will soon find one in the middle of the road.
  • The falling of one raindrop causes all drivers to immediately forget all traffic rules.  If a single snowflake falls, the city is paralyzed for three days, and it’s on all the channels as a news flash every 15 minutes for a week.  Overnight, all grocery stores will be sold out of milk, bread, bottled water, toilet paper and beer.
  • If you have ever had the pleasure of having to change planes here in Atlanta, then you know that the gates at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport are about 32 miles away from the main concourse.  So wear sneakers, and pack a lunch.

Well, thanks for taking a little tour of our fair city.   Now for the giveaway…I want to be sure that you are warm enough, as well as stunning, on the rest of your magic carpet ride, so please feel free to enter to win this Luscious Lavender Wide Ruffle Scarf.  It was hand crocheted with love by my 90 ½ year old mammalicious.

Lavender Scarf Giveaway 

This Magic Carpet Ride has become dizzifying.   (And if that’s not in your Funk & Wagnell, I just made it up!)  There has been such a wonderful response, that I am adding a second giveaway – another large ruffle scarf hand crocheted by mamalicious.  This one is red and purple:

Hand Knit Red Ruffles Scarf

Back to School brings on the heightened anticipation of football weekends, tailgating and cheering on your favorite professional sports team, college or high school team.  Here in Georgia, there’s a whole lifestyle around attending the University of Georgia (UGA) Bulldogs and the Atlanta Falcons home games, including dressing in the team colors of red and black for the games.  Of course, if you are in Kentucky, it’s all about the Louisville Cardinals.  If you live in North Carolina and aren’t decked out in Duke Blue Devil Blue or Carolina blue, you might just be wearing the red and black of the North Carolina Wolfpack.  Texas Tech Red Raiders also wear the red and black, as do the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.   As a tribute to whomever you are cheering on, here’s a preview of Foxy G.’s brand new Game Day Collection in red and black. 

You’ll be ultra game chic in this rich and luxuriously soft red and black stripe scarf. With its ample length, you can tie it, wrap it, wear it long or toss one end over your shoulder.
