My friend Ellen knit these wonderful club covers from my pattern- she wants to add pompoms to denote wood number- very cute. Ellen also knit this cashmere hat for me-
I feel like a returning student writing the obligatory what I did on my summer vacation-but this was the ultimate knitting holiday- nothing but cashmere. La Bottega del filato cashmere will be launched next month- it provides the ultimate cashmere knitting experience and I did it everywhere- on the beach, on the train etc etc. This yarn will make its debut at IKNIT show in London on 6th Sept!
Last week was a great KIP one! This sock saw Eric Clapton last weekend ( well it really only saw John Mayer and Sheryl Crow as I was too busy acting age inappropriately during Eric’s performance!) A hat watched the German semi-finals in Berlin ( albeit in front a big screen at a restaurant). Did hand-warmers on the plane trip to and fro Berlin ( and amazingly with the same guy in the window seat both times… no one ever sits in the middle if they can help it when you knit!) warning- do not attempt grafting during park concerts!
