This collection is what happens when I fall in love with a stitch pattern. This unusual cable just would not leave my brain alone….and I never got tired of knitting it. Once I’d explored all the possibilities for the full size version, I adapted it to use for smaller garments. I can face it–-I went a little nuts!
I love Shakespeare comedies. Even though they are predictable, and (in the current liberated climate) dreadfully un-PC, there is just something universally appealing about the Bard’s sense of humor. Throw in a few cross-dressing women, add some gender-bending repartee and sneak in a practical joke or two and you just can’t go wrong.
I am a big fan of garter stitch. It’s an easy fabric to make–in fact The Ubiquitous First Garter Stitch Scarf is usually the first thing a new knitter attempts. But the best thing about garter stitch is how it plays with color. Whether your yarn has long, gently changing swaths of color, is hand-painted, or if you’re simply creating stripes from your stash of remnants, garter stitch will make the colors pop!
