knitting on the beach spring break 09

  managed to knit and needlepoint on the beach in florida this year- note flamingo on bag. black yarn is a mink ( brushed from animals not pelts) and cashmere blend which is amazing. it turned into this hat.

 Also did cute child’s sweater using the german self-striping yarn( schoeller &stahl). the pattern looks vaguely missoni-ish with a slight chevron. very easy and inexpensive to make. Also, saw sharks in the water (right after I’d gotten out..), ate too much and shopped too much, love Florida….

KNITTING AND GOLF

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-

A Cashmere Holiday

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!
