LOVE this stuff!!!! It's so fun and creative: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=32631
I met Mathew Gnagi, a young designer in New York several weeks ago at Annie And Company in NYC. We were talking last weekend and he showed me a recent design of his.
I remember seeing a post about someone who made a project bag from a pair of old Carhartt pants. The zipper of the pants was used as the zipper for the bag. Does anyone remember it?
somehow I was able to finish this entire sweater in 9 days - I am a bit amazed that I got it completed so quickly!
Update: I added a pic of the original design from the vintage pattern book. Thanks for all of the positive comments!!!
Start: 14th July 2009
Finish: 14th August 2009
Needles: 4 mm / 80 cm Addi Turbos
Yarn: Wollmeise "Molly"; 100% superwash Merino; colourway "Kornblume"
Pattern: Joukahainen by Kristel Nyberg. Published in Finnish in the magazine Ulla 03/07. Pattern is available as an English translation as Ravelry download.
Name: "Joukahainen Ruiskukasta" should say something along the line of "Joukahainen out of Cornflower" (I'm just playing on the colourway name).
Modifications: Alternating the skeins after every second round to spread out the pooling.
I'm visiting NYC in september/october and I'm looking for places where the knitting guys go out and buy ther yarns and supplies. Who has any ideas?
Funny how fast you can knit when you need to produce results very fast.
