Selvedge Fair Spring 2012 - Top Pick - Gabrielle Vary
After the fairly short lived burst of summer sunshine, we are back to temperatures within the normal range for this time of year - and these scarves by Brighton-based knitwear designer Gabrielle Vary are just what you need. I love the Piccalilli yellow (as evidenced here) but the blue stripy (called Nautical on her website) and the bright orange (Sherbert) are also fabulous. I like the checkerboard pattern that she uses for her cushion covers and other knitted goodies - which also looks great as a shawl, as modeled at the Selvedge Fair by Gabrielle's stylish assistant.
Gabrielle's pieces can be bought via her website and she takes commissions too. She is next exhibiting her work at the Brighton Artist Open Houses in May 2012.
