12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping 2009 – Phydeaux Designs

FacebookTwitterPinterestTumblrBookmark/FavoritesEmailPrintFriendlyShare

12days2009logo2.jpg

It’s getting cold around here, as it is in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere about this time of year, and for me that means I pretty much live in scarves & other warm wear. I wear scarves, hats, & gloves outside and cowls, neckwarmers & fingerless gloves inside. It’s really the only way I can manage to keep warm…especially since we are committed to keeping the thermostat down as much as possible. I also like to accessorize, so there are plenty of opportunities to do that.

If you want to be warm this season or are looking for warm wear for gifts, you must visit Phydeaux Designs. There’s so many gorgeous things to choose from.  I really like the cowls (so much so that I own one myself), which you can purchase in all sorts of colors or if you are knitty, you can knit yourself from the pdf pattern. There are also scarves for guys & girls, fingerless gloves, the prettiest neckwarmers & more.

I’m feeling warmer just writing about all these goodies! How about you, would you like to win some Phydeaux Designs goodies?  Of course, you do! Read how to win a $75 gift certificate below.

To win: Leave a comment below with your Phydeaux Designs favorites for yourself or your gift recipients. Multiple entries will be accepted, but you must leave a comment for each entry, i.e. if you find 3 favorites, then leave 3 separate comments. This will increase your chances for winning

  1. Love, love, love the olive cowl neckwarmer. Very pretty.

  2. Of course being a DIY kind of person, I’d love a PDF pattern of the cowl neckwarmer.

  3. I’d also love the nutmeg cowl PDF pattern.

  4. The “under the Mistletoe” fingerless mitts are quite pretty. I wouldn’t mind owning a pair of those (and by the time I ever got around to making something similar, it would be spring). So much easier to have the elegant pair knitted so beautifully for you.

  5. my favorite cowls, because they have a modern/vintage feel and i love the colors and the lack of bulk: Antique Fig Cowl / Neckwarmer; Soft Violets Neckwarmer ; Soft Gold Neckwarmer

  6. my favorite thick scarves which i love for their deep blues and natural color combinations, and because they look cuddly-soft:
    Winter Jewels Merino Silk Scarf
    Mediterraneo Scarf
    Oceanus Scarf

  7. my favorite thick scarves which i think would be super-flattering and feminine and just lovely:
    Prairies Scarf
    Apricot Blush Scarf

  8. my last favorite scarves which have beautiful deep colors, are richly textured, look interesting and inviting:
    Kodiak Lace Scarf
    Plum Pudding Scarf
    Soft Brick Scarf
