It’s a lovely story, but quite a long one, especially for those of you who have been following from the very beginning. I’ll give you the short version. Carol Jayne’s daughter, Josephine, found a picture of a sweater online and asked her mom, “Can you knit this for me?”
Knitting: Beret, Tam
I was intrigued by a lovely framed celtic knot hanging in our vacation cottage. The twists and turns were mesmerizing and I decided to recreate it with knitted cables. It was challenging to say the least but the result was worth it; a lovely beret emblazoned with a pentagonal knot.
Two delicate antique lace patterns are combined to create this graceful and stylish capelet. The body of the capelet is knitted sideways and then grafted together before the yoke is picked up and knit in the round. Simple decreases in the yoke flow into the flattering ribbed turtleneck collar.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is a simple and quick knit; perfect for a last minute baby gift. I like to think it’s classic but quirky. I also firmly believe that babies in silly hats make people smile. And what could be better than a child growing up in a world with people smiling at him?
