When you live in New England, you quickly realize that the start of spring, according to the calendar, has nothing to do with the start of spring weather. Designer Amanda Lilley has lived in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, so I can only imagine she had spring in mind when knitting her beautiful Fern Fingerless Gloves.
It’s time, once again, to showcase you fantastic knitters out there – our customers. Here are five sweaters designed by me and interpreted by Ravelers to fit their individual tastes and needs.
This pattern is in the Fall 2007 edition of Vogue Knitting. Traffic Knitter whipped up the Pure Merino pieces very quickly and suffered angst about sewing it together perfectly. She’s posted a great side view on her blog and described her sewing solution.
Cadburyskeeper expressed the wish that she had taken a better photo of her Chantal, but I love the boldness of the red cardigan against the black and white curtain and the odd feeling that she is taking a photo of us as we gaze on. Oh, and yes, she’s used the yarns called for Ultra Alpaca and Ultra Alpaca Light (which come dyed to match).
I think that meegiemoo’s Alpine suits her perfectly. Here’s the link to the free pattern . Check out her blog to see “The Cutest Shoes in the World”, completing the the look (scroll down). For more pictures of Alpine knit in Cuzco – click here.
Thanks for all the great Knitting!
