Freedom Fridays: Amy Herzog Designs

What a surprise I had last week when I saw a blogger that I follow wearing one of my necklaces in her photo. And she looks so great wearing it!

I met Amy through our mutual friend Thea, both whom are avid knitters with huge followings on Ravelry (the popular knitting site). While I've never met Amy in person, we've started chatting back and forth through our blogs, email and recently twitter. That was a first for me to chat away through twitter. Usually I use twitter to post (or announce) some new piece of jewelry. Hmm, a new use for twitter. Note to self.

Amy is modeling her new pattern -- a cardigan (in a beautiful plum color) called Caulfield. It is so cute. Apparently Amy's pattern is so popular that it's up at #2 on Ravelry as 'what's hot right now.' Go Amy!  She also has a version in a green sleeveless tank that is awesome. Her design has a 'choose your own adventure' feature to it. What she's done is written a knitting pattern that has several different options. You can pick and choose between making it a pullover with sleeves, or a sleeveless tank, or switching round the waist shaping options. How cool is that?

The necklace she's wearing is one I made last Fall that features a very unique turquoise slice. Frankly I totally forgot I made it! My friend Thea was visiting and I loaded her up with a bunch of samples for her to dole out at her choosing. I knew she was going to give a couple to Amy who might hopefully wear a few in upcoming photo shoots. Yep there are more, so hopefully I get to show you all another knitting pattern from Amy along with another jewelry piece by me.

That is a gorgeous necklace, and perfectly suits her natural, bohemian style. That photo is like something from a magazine!

Amy's sweater is beautiful. I am such a cardigan girl in the summer wearing sleeveless tops and always needing a cardigan in the freezing cold air conditioning at work! I love that she is modeling one of your pieces. The turquoise slice is stunning and so unique!
