Custom Order: Women’s Winter Set

3 Feb

Woo Hoo!  I finished it!  This adorable gift set is currently making its way to one Lunatrix29, who believes it may just be the cure for her “arctic ice paws.”

 

fingerless gloves = the only cure for arctic ice paw, a very serious condition

The set is made of a luxury merino wool blend in charcoal and pale green, and contains a pair of  Fabulous Fingerless Gloves, a 64″ That’s What She Said Scarf, and an ultra warm Hatty Hat.

Methinks this would be an excellent gift, let’s say in… reds, whites and pinks for Valentine’s Day… *hint, hint*

You can get one item for $18 USD, two items for $30 USD,

 

scarf & fingerless gloves

Or a gift set with all three items for $50 USD (gift sets qualify for free shipping, too!  Hooray!).

 

Look how I nestled the gloves and scarf inside the hat! Aren't I clever?

 

 

 

SO.  Head on over to my Awesomely Awesome Etsy shop of Awesomeness and order a set (or two, or seventeen) today!
