The Palma Sweater: A unique knit

It's the Palma Sweater (shown at left) by Lene Holme Samsøe. What initially drew me to this sweater was its simplicity: a cross-front sweater with three-quarter-length sleeves and a wide-rib collar. Then I saw the back, and it's made up of a stunning cable panel that incorporates a leafy vine set off with rope cables.

Knit and tonic: Yogini Bolero. I never really put the words, "yogi" and "bolero" together in my mind before, but when this pattern was complete, it just seemed right.

knit and tonic: Yogini Bolero

Well, at least until I said the two words together out loud. When I said "Yogi Bolero," out came visions of a know-it-all, hat-wearin', on-two-feet walkin' bear who happens to have a best friend named "Boo Boo. " It was then that I knew, just knew, that I couldn't name the thing "Yogi Bolero," after all. In walked the "Yogini Bolero.

" Whips up in no time flat--at least the short sleeve version does--you can throw this one on in a pinch on your way to a class or use as a cover up for a little tank or wildly printed dress. Yogini Bolero is knit in one piece, from the top down.

I Heart Aran

This is my first sweater pattern and I am very happy to finally be able to share my completed vision with you all. You may remember me blogging about it still being a WIP back in February. Katie did - katie did journal - getting colder. The weather has officially shifted. we can no longer walk the streets of brooklyn unbundled without seriously regretting the decision. so, the coats and hats and gloves have come out of storage and onto the big and little bodies around here. a few days into the cold, eve began requesting a scarf. ruth soon joined in. after two weeks of being reminded (scolded?)

By my daughters i got to work making the scarves, in the laziest ways possible. instructions below: scarf #1: find abandoned, half-finished scarf wadded up in the bottom corner of yarn/knitting bag. stick needles in one last time to cast off properly. sew on largest button you have and fasten around daughter's neck. feel really good about yourself. you might have been lazy, but you've just made scarves two scarves in less than an hour. and that's something.

Chain until your little fingers grow tired/you run out of yarn. Wrap, twist and manipulate around your neck until you look cozy and hip like so. Diamonds and Bobbles Afghan from Knitting. Big Herringbone Cowl. This winter New York City streets are filled with people who have learned the secret of keeping warm. They are all wrapped up in the big soft folds of the oversized cowl. A long loop that you twist and double around your neck, it's definitely a glamorous touch in a what can otherwise be pretty frumpy season.

Don't you love when fashion and function meet in such happy harmony? This cowl was inspired by Joelle's classic Herringbone Poncho from her very first book, Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I have always been so taken with the drape and texture of Joelle's poncho that I was really excited to borrow her idea for this project!
