Lisa Danielle Designs: Knitting Classes!!

COME ONE COME ALL!! Lisa Danielle Designs will be starting knitting classes next month here in San Francisco! They will be starting on January 16th-February 6th 2010. I'm super excited about it and you should be too! Email me as soon as you can to reserve your spot! Spaces are limited but the fun we will have will go on for weeks!

Roses to California Paradise and Sunrise to Florida!

Hello ladies and gents!

The btrendie event was a huge success!! After much toil, knitting purling and no sleep I completed all the orders and they have been shipped out! I can't wait to hear the feedback and pray its all excitement and joy!

The cool part for me was having 28 items to go 8 different states to women that I've never seen before. It's a very different feeling NOT knowing who my customer is but having her see the item site unseen and want to purchase it.

One Paradise glow and Sunrise cowl went to Florida
Two three layer cakes were delivered to New York
Two creamy white signature cowls made their way to Maine. Three roses and an Ocean Front went to California
A warm up hat and a few cowls made there way to Colorado as well. 

I'd gladly do this event again and may have to get an assistant or an extra set of arms as I do enjoy life and would like to keep it going. 

Thanks again to btrendie.com for the opportunity to send Lisa Danielle Designs across the country.

Christmas is in full swing!!

I would like to thank the people at bTrendie.com for allowing LDD to have the opportunity to show what I have to offer. Through the entire experience is was a very condensed version on how to order inventory (very long three days finding a yarn that seemed to be lost in the mountains of Moordor), taking photos, re taking photos and my email has never has such a work out.

Through this I've also received childrens orders (yes there will be children/baby line for spring as well-I'm really excited about it!). In case you missed it, here are a few pictures from the Lisa Danielle Designs  bTrendie event :

Overall this was a great experience.

MVP for this weekend was the 3 layer cake cowl (Note: this color way will be gone soon, so this 'flavor' of cake is going out with yesterdays old muffins).  

White is a very popular color for winter now (especially the warm toned white that the signature cowl has to offer)

The Ocean Front is finally making some waves (bu-dum-bum!) and did really well. Get yourself one!

The Bling cowl was finally introduced and accepted! I've been saving it for a while now and I'll put some pics up soon. 

There was a fantastic sales turn out and will gladly work with this  company again. I'm a firm believer that mom's need to catch as man 'financial breaks' as possible and still look fashionable.

Remember to visit btrendie.com for all your mom needs at a discounted price and make sure you keep visiting lisadanielledesigns where its all about fashion, comfort, and you!!

Lisa Danielle Designs is officially open for Business.

Come check out all the hard work that many people have put into this. I do want to thank D.B for all her help. There is no way I could have started without her. Vee was indispensable during this process, D.N, T.B., B.V. were my photographers, and everything came out amazing.

I want to thank everyone who helped to make this possible.

Now its time to shop! (and Knit)

What...wait...it's gone already??

Yes, yes I know...the school fashion show went by in a flash, its gone, finished, kaput. In lighter news everything came out quite good.Now time to move on to the big hitter-holiday season. Yes Fall 09 is being worked on EARLY! And right now. So more news to come on colors and such.

There will be Jacquard and lace

I had a dear friend help me 'model' some of the items for me. Thanks B!

Here are a few of my favs.

Happy Birthday to me!

Okay I'm being a little self-serving here. April 28th was my 26th Birthday.
In other news, I finally got the cotton cable cowl done last night. It does look really nice, and glimmery. Not 1987 barbie gold and magenta lame shiny. But modern subtle glimmer.

The school fashion show is coming along well. We are still in the process of getting more designers for the fundraiser. As for LDD things are moving along well behind the scenes.

I need to ask a favor of my ladies who subscribe to this blog: I need your testimonials about the cowls, or other items you have purchased from me. What do you like about them? What words come to mind when you think of your cowl, scarf or hat?? What would you like to see from LDD?

Okay Ladies, I'm still going to enjoy my birthday week and get back to work!

Monday, April 20, 2009


I am happy, no wait ELATED to see that cowls are in for fall. I was perusing WWD.com, and as I was going through the fashions for fall (which might I add mens' and womens' fashions are going together like his and hers towel sets) and noticed something around both male and female models necks-cowls.

I continued to click as my heart rate increaced and noticed them on quite a few designers, Burburry, Prada, and even Chanel has a very fluttery cowl-like Elizabethan neck cover.....fall is going to be GREAT!

Now let's not get it twisted-the cowls are not like mine. You can't wear them five different ways like mine, nor are they hand crafted like mine...but the big designers are paying attention...

Unlike them, we have known this little secret of awesomeness for the past year now....San Franciscan ladies who know me and what I make are already in the know....now its time for everyone else.

Talk to you soon with updates for Spring-and the annual fashion show next month!

Peace out!

Networking networking...just plain working!

Hey LDD ladies! No I have not forgotten about you! Spring break broke so I'm back to work.

Good news is Spring/Summer 09 really is on its way-really. New colors and choices new to LDD are coming too, so stay tuned for that new development!

In other news I'll be doing a little networking at a local fashion show this week and heard very good news from a friend of mine about getting cowls into the hands and necks of many new customers at a pretty huge organization here in SF!

And in just plain fun news the annual Ebony Fashion show is coming to the Bay area this weekend! It's always a great time watching the black beauties strut their stuff in the fashion industries best!

Plus you get good swag. Free subscription to Ebony or Jet Magazine, AND free fashion fair makeup!

Until next time....

Irony is the spice of life

Figures....I've been knitting non stop sense about early December knowing full well I have tendinitis in my wright wrist (and I'm left handed-irony #1), I decided to 'relax' and do some Pilates workouts via Netflix last night and do the sadistic move of a 'Pilates push up' a basic gym style push up which moves into a cat stretch, then back again-and I wake up in the middle of the night with pain in my wrist.


The only upside is that I don't have anything pressing to knit right now-my yarn is not here yet. Although I am working on a wrap which I'm kind of excited about-and bangles-which are knit so the 'banging' part-not so much.

My fashionable cousin in Canada is going to have to wait a few more days for her cowl....

Stupid Pilates....

Photo shoot on the way!

Good news girlie girls! LDD is going to have is FIRST professional photo shoot and the website is getting a good sprucing up too. I have too many people asking me "When can I look at your site?" I really need to give them more of an answer than "Ummm...."

So in the next few weeks pictures will be  taken, website will be spruced up and lots LOTS LoTs of items will be coming out for spring/summer. 

In other news....
Have you gotten your 5 way Cowl yet? ;) Everybody has one...
My most popular selling item is a little bananas right now-especially here in San Francisco-it's been pouring down rain so much all anyone wants to do is curl up in a blanket. This is as close to a walking blanket as you will get-barring that Victor and Rolf bed dress from a few years ago....(still brilliant...not exactly office friendly)

I've been experimenting with adding a little shine to them, giving it a little sparkle aside from the basics (which are always good) but if you want a little more in your creative cowl, don't fret.
Some new colors include: Peanut Butter Cup (Peanut Butter color with chocolate and carmel drizzled right in), Black  licorice (black on subtle sheen black), and whipped cream (creamy off white mixed with a darker cream and champagne). These are just a few to choose from for now...  

I will also cover a little business here girls:

The basic cowls are still 30.00-you can't beat that price with a stick.  These are the ones that are just one color and the 80/20% wool/acrylic yarn in just one color. 
The new "candy coated" cowls (added yarn mixed with a matt and metallic yarn) are 40.00-still great. I know you may be thinking "why so much more? Trust me, a little bit goes a long way, it gives it whole new look which you will be getting complements on all the time. Let's remember you can wear this cowl 5 (maybe 6) different ways-you are getting your monies worth.

Any other 'special order'- if you want anything else made like a cowl, but you would prefer a 100% Peruvian wool, or alpaca or a silk blend. The base price is 30.00-but this does not include the cost of the yarn. On average they can range from 20.00 per skein (ball of yarn) and up.   If you want three different colors-you would pay for the three different yarns, ect.

We are expanding!!!!

Sorry I haven't written is so long, sickness is running around here in Frisco Bay...

Due to an explosion is expanding friends new things are happening over here at Lisa Danielle Designs, including an entire new project with an entirely new partner in Crime! Don't fret LDD is not going anywhere-the only thing changing with me is the spring collection and summer items which I will finally work on when I have time off.

Website on its way, hopefully with entirely new section that will be talked about in later blogs.

Will leave you in suspense for now....

Just think....specialized bags made for carrying for two!!!! (The BAGS people-not me...trust me)

That's all I'm going to say.....

Friday, January 23, 2009


I've been had! Hoodwinked! Run Ammuck...okay maybe not but I was paying WAY too much for my previous website provider-after all the US was just informed that we are NOW in a recession-but a girls gotta eat! Gym memberships don't pay for themselves!

So long story short the site will be down for a month or so while the changes are made and...


It will include:

Summer Scarves...what are those you might ask?? You'll have to wait and see...

constructed hats

loose knit summer hats

A summer version of the hottest accessory you all need to have: the 5 way cowl (there's a 6th way-the email is coming soon)

And real constructed hand bags.

More machine knit items (it's still me knitting it-no electricity other than static)

New color variation

New fiber mixes

New Cute stuff...

If you are on the West Coast you can talk to me personally about V-Day gifts (or as I like to call it Singles Appreciation Day)

If you are on the East Coast-shoot me an email, or if you are clever find me on skype...

For the rest of you-your orders are on their way as fast as my two hands can knit them...

Hello all!

Sorry I have not written is so long, I've had a very interesting time consolidating my email addresses-I had 6 of them. The only problem with getting rid of them is not realizing how many thins you had attached to those addressed-like this blog for example.

It took me a week to remember my password and I inadvertently found a old blog from my angst-ish college years which-thankfully I found and deleted all in one fowl swoop.

On a designer note business is starting to go well and pick up more. Looks like I'll have a possibility of taking these cowls across the country. I'm going to be updating the website and the blog with new designs for Spring and more pictures soon.
