The Shape of Knits to Come
So, it occurred to me that I really haven’t posted anything about knitting projects in a while.
And that’s because I really haven’t been doing much knitting lately. Been pretty focused on the sheepers and the fleeces.
So, I decided I needed to knit another Oregon Vest.
I already have one Oregon vest, and it is one of my favorite handknits. I wear it all the time.
I’ve been meaning to knit another one for a while. So, I’m finally getting around to it.
This one will be primarily Huey. I’d like for it to be entirely Huey,, but I’m not sure I have enough left. So I’ll find something else complementary in the stash to finish it off if need be.
So, there’s that in the works.
And then I just looked in on Brooklyn Tweed yesterday, and found the sweater that I’ve been meaning to design for myself!
Brownstone is all I’ve been wanting in a pullover- shawl collar, raglan shoulder, in-the-round construction.
Hurray for Jared!
I’m lovin’ the idea of a Griff Brownstone. Destined to become a wardrobe staple.
Don’t have any Griff samples spun up yet, but he’s about half washed, so he’ll be on the bobbin soon! And it’s dreamy stuff.
Here are first skeins of Felix/Franklin and Edgar, both approximately sport weight-
I’m also kind of itchin’ to make some more of those cute Estonian Sheep Puppets that appeared in Spin-Off a couple of years ago.
Perhaps one like each of the boys?
