Oh, hello. Are you a super-awesome expert knitter? Perhaps you know one? Because I would really like to have this blanket happening in my life, but I cannot find one anywhere that is as perfect. And, really, what is a blog for if not to find a stranger on the Internet from whom to commission work? I ask you.

Are you the knitter for me? Hit me in the comments.

In other news:

I spied this little ring today via Design*Sponge's IG feed, and now I feel I must have one. Or two. Or maybe ten. Is ten nine too many? Maybe.

This has been today's edition of "Things AB Chao Wants and/or Needs Immediately." Enjoy!

I like it when Etsy does the shopping work for me. I found these awesome geometric necklaces, by BlueBird Lab, in my "Handpicked Items" and now I would like to have them all.

There are regular ones and special limited editions, like the one above. 

I cannot really tell what is going on with the clasp, but I love the way it looks. It seems like it might also be adjustable? Always a bonus.

You should, of course, buy several and wear them all at once. Also, they are from Lithuania, so you can be all, "Oh, these? They're from my jeweler in Lithuania."

When I was in San Francisco last week for my two (awesome) design camps, I noticed Lisa Congdon's lovely neon pink necklace collection, and I was sore jeals. Lisa dresses a lot like she paints -- lots of neutrals like black and white and gray, then BAM! Some big vibrant color. I myself am a fan of this wardrobe method, so it surprises me that I don't already have any neon accessories. I intend to remedy that, and here are some pretty choices I found:

I like the gold on single facets of the wood in the left-hand picture, and I really love the pink + neutral with the gold chain.

Left: FIGUREframe, $18.  Right: A Merry Mishap, $30.99.

This company -- an English joint called Oelwein -- has some really beautiful necklaces in all different shades of neon, hung on a natural leather cord. I want to wear them all together at once.

Wood + paint + gold + neon pink cording = Love. In the end, these both seemed a little long for my purposes, but they are still awesome. And I can't resist things styled with confetti.

Left: Soft Gold Studio, $38. Right: Oelwein, $21.47.

Perfection! This is the one I ended up going with, and I think it is a good combination of all the things I loved about the others: gold, pink, on a chain, unobtrusive, not too long, etc. Just right.

I hope you have been riveted by this difficult decision. Go forth and accessorize, neonly.

THE ONE: Minoux Jewelry Shop, $44.
