Here's a peek at my next piece, Johanna, named for my grandmother's grandmother.
I just love the delicate texture of this diamond brocade that feels like lace to me without the holes. Juliet and I collaborated on the sweater design, but she wanted stripes – random stripes! and although her wish is my command I feared random stripes might intimidate prospective knitters especially in light of shaping and buttoned cuffs. (I'll admit to being a bit intimidated myself!) So I've made her version first, serving the groundwork for dimensions and sizing. It looks fabulous on her and we'll certainly get a picture during our next photo shoot. Meanwhile my work continues, happily, on this – aiming for a December pattern launch. Stay tuned!
