Dude Looks Like A Knitter

Time for some Random Wednesday Posts

is this dude for real?

I’m totally in awe of his knitting AND his photography! i bow to brooklyntweed! I am finishing up my own shetland shawl and can only hope that it looks as fabulous as his.  and let’s not even compare my snapshots to his.  i’m so amazed! wanna cross the river to Jersey to give a lesson?  I will now play the Beastie Boys’ "No Sleep ‘Till Brooklyn" on repeat so that I’m inspired to finish my shawl.

Send me on My Way

Knits in the Minorly Obsssed arena are producing themselves everywhere and I’m constantly (it seems) being inspired to do MORE.   I just bought the Zypher Style, Rusted Root pattern, and not only does the name make me think of the CD I used to play nonstop in high school, but also I it’s going to be my Rheinback knit!  I can so see myself wearing this baby to work and play.  It’s so relaxing and simple and Knit In The Round. Hello, I love won’t you tell me your name?


I am just debating what color to make it.  I love the one on the model, but do I want to make a carbon copy?   I feel like I have so many greens, i did an NBaT in brown and not sure how blue fits into my wardrobe these days, maybe lilac but I keep being drawn to the reds.  Cotton Fleece happily comes in a wonderful assortment but it just makes the decision making harder!

Yes, More Leaves

I hope to have some finished goodies to show soon but for now I’ve paused most everything else to finish a Backyard Leaves scarf.  The pattern just sucked me in and I. just. can’t. stop.  I know there a ton of these around the internets and it’s easy to see why.  I am using DB Cashmerino Aran on sz 8’s.  I might go down a needle if I decide to make another, but I am enjoying how it’s coming out.


I swear, It was on Sale


Some DB Cathay for perhaps a Bolero of my own.  I bought enough to put long sleeves on that puppy if I wanted to.  There’s a new-to-me knitting store nearby having a wonderul sale.  These were 25% off! I will go back.  Oh yes, I will go back.

Speaking of Yarn Stores

I  am helping out at Patricia’s Yarns in Hoboken.  I start this Saturday!  Oh won’t  you come by and knit with me?? ;-)

    I found your blog through January One, and am so glad I did. Frankly, I think I’m in love with Jared of Brooklyn Tweed. He is absolutely awesome. As for the Backyard Leaves scarf, I can totally relate. I really enjoyed making it and want to make another one. As for yarn sales, hey, look at how much money you saved, right?

    I’m with you on that Shetland Shawl from Brooklyn Tweed. He’s amazing. I’ve made that pattern, and mine is nowhere near as spectacular. It’s his yarn and color choice, and those photos. . .
    I’ve been to Patricia’s Yarns. She’s got a lot of pretty Manos. I’ll have to come by and say “Hello”.
    Lovely Backyard Leaves! I’ll bet it feels scrumptious in that Cashmerino.
