Recent knitting


I haven’t posted about knitting in a long time. Earlier this fall I made a pumpkin cap for my nephew Russell. It’s quite a cute hat, and I learned a nice technique in the way the little brim is made. I’m adapting it for a Christmas hat I put on the needles yesterday. Here we are visiting Walden Pond.

Folk Vests

Folk Vests: 25 Knitting Patterns and Tales from Around the World by Cheryl Oberle is a nicely done book with lots of ideas. Much like Oberle’s Knitted Shawls, most of the patterns aren’t actually patterns for Japanese or African, etc. knitted vests but are rather patterns for knitted vests inspired by international textiles.
