Summer of Customer Love

Knit Man for a Knitting Man

The weather might be warm for a San Francisco summer, but the knitting love is still in the air. To start off we have Kate, who made this amazing man, all kitted out in handknit goods as part of a birthday gift for a friend. It is based on this pattern. She blogged about the details here. That little ball of yarn just kills me!

Carlos in a Koolhaas

Carlos is modeling the wonderful hat that Mike knit out of Malabrigo worsted. The pattern is of course the Koolhass Hat by Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed, from the Interweave Knits Holiday 2007 issue. The issue has sadly sold out, but it is available for sale as a single pattern at Knitting Daily.

Knitting Art

This is our very own Chris with a stunning art neck piece made from a variety of yarns. This is an original design from one of the most intuitive knitters I have met. It is available for purchase at the Museum of Craft and Design.

Kathleen shows her USC Pride

Can you believe that Kathleen used a circular knitting loom to make this hat? Wow! She used Misti Alpaca Chunky in USC colors for the lucky recipient to get their collegiate pride on!

Knitting on the side

Kristina made this lovely side to side garter sweater using Terra from The Fibre Company. The colorway is called Henna, doesn’t it just glow?

Kathy's knitted frock

Kathy is modeling her incredible dress from issue 35 of Rebecca. She used Zara which really makes the cables and stitch pattern pop!

Beautiful Bianca

Carrie’s cardigan in Rowan Summer Tweed makes me want to knit up one for myself! The pattern is Bianca’s Jacket by Michele Rose Orne from the Fall 2006 issue of Interweave Knits.

Katie in her Hoodie

Katie sent us a photo of her completed sweater, based on the Santa Cruz Hoodie in the book Knit 2Together. She combined two lovely colors of Misti Alpaca Chunky. It looks like the perfect sweater to throw on when the fog does roll in!
