i am beyond excited to start this year of 12 collaborations with some truly talented artists. some of which you may have seen around here before and others will be new faces you will all soon know and want to remember. first up is an up and coming etsy shop known as fruit of phalanges which is not only a haven for eclectic and unique hand knitted items, but a collection that blends artful techniques beautifully to create soft, sculptural pieces that can be worn or displayed in your home. i became smitten with alisha's shop for her whimsical take on knitting, including her handmade doggie hoodies!
alisha describes her creations as somewhat off beat knitted canvases disguised as hats, scarves, mittens, leg warmers, and other wintry items. her shop also includes fiber based creations such as necklaces (of which i love the idea of hanging on a wall when not being worn), bookmarks, small handbags, and whatever strikes her whimsy. today, alisha would like to give one lucky reader the chance to win a $50.00 store credit! and just in case you want to pick up some items from her shop now, you can visit her on etsy here. entering is easy (just use the rafflecopter widget after the jump) and remember to play fair as all entries will be verified. good luck!
