The Yokoo Jar


Every so often I have a new object of desire. Something I get obsessed with, until in the end I buy it or more often I don't, and the dress/shoes/notebook is eventually no longer available and my affection moves on to the next thing. Currently I'm lusting after one of Yokoo's giant cowls (or scarves, or headbands, or snugglers). I have been watching Yokoo's etsy shop for months, but was saved by the fact that she didn't ship internationally anyway. Then recently I discovered her beautiful photography on Flickr and the obsession deepened. Then today I read that she does now ship internationally! My heart fluttered a little... there's a chance I could own one of those beautiful ginormous, warm, comfy, chunky pieces of knitting! So I've decided its time to start a Yokoo jar, where I will save my pennies until I can afford to buy one. They look so warm and snug and cozy! Until then, lets all gaze at the lovely photos and hope that I manage to save enough pennies before the weather gets too warm to wrap up in giant scarves!

She's becoming so big on the web! I think the way she styles her pieces really makes the difference.

The best thing about her scarves is that she handwashes them before she sends them so they smell really lovely when you open up the package...
