Any ideas

I want to knit something for a very dear friend in LA for her birthday in September. My other half helpfully pointed out that the chunky item on the needles is hardly going to be needed in LA and would be more suited to the north of Scotland. Any ideas for a smallish item that's for the glamourous and sun-kissed of L.A???


A very airy lacy shawl would work in LA---evenings can have a bit of an edge.

Look at the Steven West small neck scarves.

I'd go with either of the suggestions. Maybe a lacy, airy scarf? -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Yeah - check out Stephen West - he's got some really great light scarf things:

Think less, enjoy it more.

The Noble Cowl might be a possibility. I made one as a gift last Christmas. You could knit it in a nice blend which wouldn't be as warm as wool. I used madelinetosh tosh dk which was quite lovely.

Having lived in LA, I say go light/airy and something that's easy to just toss off the shoulder if it gets too warm.

I agree with the others, Stephen West's Little Colonnade would be perfectly casual and chic. Ishbel for something a little fancier!
