Featuring Urban Eagle Designs

Handmade Sunshine and the Destructo-Bunnies Blog featured an Etsy Knitters team member:

"It's not every day that one gets to meet a woman who is truly a treasure. Today we all get to look into the wonder that is Katy of Urban Eagle Designs. Her shop has been open a little over a month now, so she is still “undiscovered”, but she should be right up there on everyone's go-to list for something extra-special. After I read her questions I just wanted to get on a plane and fly out to New Mexico to meet her in person...she's just that awesome" says Sarah, the voice behind the blog.

You can read the full article here.

Additionally, don't forget to stop by the weekly Etsy Forum thread hosted by the Etsy Knitters Team to see the incredible designs the Etsy Knitters team members have created.

Scarf of Many Colors by The High Plains Knitter

Carnival Scarf of many colors

This is my newest scarf of many colors. I call it Carnival. Bright, bold, vivid colors of pink, orange, green, purple, yellow, and burgandy are mixed with all the sparkle of a carnival. I imagine the bright lights and laughter of a carnival when I look at it.

The scarf was hand knit by Dianne of The High Plains Knitter. Below Diane takes the time to answer additional questions about the scarf.

Q. What was your inspiration?
I love to put colors together. This one is so bright and perky that I
call it Carnival.

Q. How long did it take you to make it?
I put about 3 hours into making them.

Q. Do you plan to make any more items similar to this one?
I do plan to make more of them, and in different colors.

Q. Did you enjoy making it? Why or why not?
This is one of my favorite scarves because the creativity comes in choosing the yarns. When its comes to knitting it, I can do that pretty mindlessly, even
late at night.

Q. Anything else you want to tell us about it?
It is purely a fashion statement and not intended for warmth, but make a statement it does.
