I learned to knit when I was eight years old, so that I could make little jackets for my troll dolls. When I lived in England, before I trained as an architect, I ran a textiles workshop, where we did all our own dying, weaving and knitting. I belong to two knitting groups and of course I’m a member of wwww.ravelry.com. I’ve been knitting for 52 years… which explains why my sleeves are so long!
I am always happy to share patterns, appreciate other knitters, and teach beginning knitters. Just call me on 805.4440.5573, or email DrKyreAdept@gmail.com.
Meanwhile, here are some pictures of recent projects: the top one is a pair of socks for a friend I saw at Christmas in (frigid) Illinois, and the second one is an entrelac afghan or coverlet I’m making for myself, now completed (February 5, 2018).
The socks below were still on the needles (November 2017) and have since been finished and sent out. This pair reminds me of my favorite pomegranate and sour cherry truffles! Darkest red is Galileo merino+bamboo, other red is Stroll Glimmer wool, and the offwhite is 50/50 cashmere+silk, all from Knitpicks.com.
And here are 2017 Midwinter gifts, ready to be sent out:
The summer project for 2017, a Seashell Shawl that I am keeping for myself:
And here is the pattern for a beautifully simple feather-and-fan afghan:
