Sweaters and Trips and Winners

First things first: Congratulations, Genevieve! You’ve won the dinner pass for Fiber College; I’ll send you email to work out the details.

Second things second: Sock Summit was phenomenal. Seriously, the best conference I’ve ever been to and I go to a lot of them for my day job. The classes I taught at Twisted were full of amazing students and the store is just lovely. All in all it was a glorious little escape in the middle of a very busy summer.

And third things third: I’m sure you’ve seen that the latest issue of Twist Collective is up? It’s an astonishingly huge and beautiful issue. Clicking through it, I had the experience twice of thinking that must be the end, and then discovering another photo story! There are so many wearable and beautiful garments, I do hope you’ll go through and check out the whole thing. I’m thrilled to have a sweater included this time round: Twinings is what happened when I started thinking about how to make a faux wrap sweater.

I’ll be back in a couple of days to talk about the design process and details/modifications and so forth. For now, I just wanted to give you all a little wave from the mountain of work I’m sitting behind and let you know that we’re starting a KAL for Twinings over on ravelry. I’m running it from my brand-spanking new Ravelry group, which I hope you’ll join! It’s exciting to have one place for errata, modifications, pattern support, and beautiful FO shots.

See you there?

  1. I loved Twinings as soon as I saw it. I’ll have to check out the KAL to see if I can make it work for me.

  2. I’m already seeing this pop on other people’s blogs as a “have-to-knit-this-now” item. I think it is absolutely amazing! I’ll be interested to see how you dealt with the problem I often encounter which is an odd (and very unflattering) bi-secting of the right breast for larger busted women. At its worse, it is too tight and ‘creases’ the breast.

    And I can’t believe you were at Sock Summit and I didn’t get to meet you in person! How disappointing. 🙁

  3. I hadn’t even noticed it… I don’t know how it’s possible! Anyway, I just put it in my queue because Twinings may just be the next sweater I knit! It’s a beautiful design!
