I got excited during the MN House debate for marriage equality and had to knit something appropriate to the occasion. Mandy was kind enough to model.
Stephen West is a lot of fun. His designs seem to be more art than wearables lately, but Michelle seemed to really like her Color Craving. I enjoyed the knitting of it, but just could not figure a way to wear it well.
I made these for Mary because I loves her. Vancouver Fog is only meant to be a short mitt, but Mary is much more interesting than that.
Driftwood is a simple pullover with great fit. It’s amazing how something so straightforward can have such flattering results. (Bright pink buttons don’t hurt, either.)
It is a true measure of how much I love Mandy, and how many great things I expect of her baby daughter Miri that I was able to part with Penelope. I am rarely a fan of knitting toys; they are so fussy, with so much finishing. But this monster is more worth it than I’d dreamed. I put lots of hugs into her so she could share them with the baby. (They can share the sweater, too.)
Michael’s epic pullover was the crowning glory of the year. So much refiguring, such a great result. (Lots of notes on my project page, if you’re curious.)
