I recently heard someone say of her house, “This is not a house of yarn.” She and I were looking to repair a knitted hat and she was fearing she did not have yarn or supplies we could use. With that criteria one would say that this home is a house of yarn. And, I am always looking for new, functional, and creative ways in which to store it. And, the projects. And, the works-in-progress. And, the knitting tools. … Little Red Wagon
One of my goals as I entered into retirement was to knit from my stash. The stash I am talking about includes patterns I have loved and collected over time and/or the bundles of yarn that were purchased at a time when I thought I could knit a particular project. I suppose enthusiasm outweighs time, at least that is my case, so in my new state of retirement, I am addressing this. This project is an example of that. I don’t even know where I first saw this pattern as I do not subscribe to Interweave Knits but I have been following Teva Durham, the creative designer since being aware of her work through Vogue Knitting. The pattern is called Renaissance Tunic, as you will see, for obvious reasons. And, I am thrilled to finally be adding this to my wardrobe.
