I am in total awe of this piece of knitting. It was made my German/Swiss grandmother's sister in the 1930's. What is amazing is the size of the thread.....it is probably finer than size 40 crochet cotton.
I don't think that my hands or eyes would ever be capable of attempting this !
This is a fair isle pullover that I designed and knit from Jamieson & Smith's Shetland on US#4 needles. I used about 30 different colors throughout, but only two at a time per round. Neck and armholes were secured and cut in the traditional method. All the color changes really kept my interest, so I finished it in week!
This is Marianne Kinzel's "Sun Ray" pattern from her "First Book of Modern Lace Knitting". I made it in 100% linen on US #4 needles.
The first half goes quickly, the last bit, not so much!
Giving this another shot!
I designed and knit this pullover last month. Wool is Knit Picks "Palette", used US # 4 needles. Knit from bottom up...body and sleeves connected and finished with yoke. I love it when all the math works out right and the visualized design becomes reality!
Here is a picture of sweater. Did not attatch first time!
I designed and knit this sweater 30 years ago. I was exploring the Nordic tradition, so this was knit in the round with cut steeks for the sleeves. I added the red hem facings to add a secret dash of fun and pazazz! This was a "cropped" style which a big departure from the long and loose sweaters that I was making at that time. I wore this yesterday and received raves and compliments.
Here is my version of "wingspan" using 60 st instead of 90. Yarn is Crazy Zauberball, color 1702 ombre.
I have posted lots of pictures of my knitting on Facebook ,if you care to view.
As you can see, this is my passion!
