Wee Hearts in St Helena

015

018

I finally got to schedule some time with my busy nieces, and we finally got to photograph the latest knitwear, and luck had it that at the moment we started, so did the rain. None the less,  we had a lovely time shooting  while cozied up in warm knitteds, beneath a single cramped corner of an overhang in the entryway to the rather gothic church on Oak Street. Good times had!

New patterns are Wee Hearts (mitts forthcoming!),  Lace Cowl & Lace Mitts, Ridges Cowl & Ridges Mitts, Twists Cowl & Twists Mitts.

Ridges

the Blue Ridge Mountains

What do the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Altitude Ridges have in common?

Well, here is my latest little ‘weekend knit’ and second in series of three which will be my “Altitude Cowls”, the original named “Twists”, which is all knit stitches with some occasional twists from cabling, a truly beautiful step-up for a beginner who is encouraged by a little challenge.  (Altitude Cowls created for up & coming Knitting @ Altitude Group.)

and now this one “Ridges”. . .

which is a beautiful affect of a very timeless chevron motif of knit & purl stitches. Two kinds of stitches make a deeply textured waving undulating plush thing, which begs to be knit then wrapped around one’s neck all winter long !

Soon to be ready is Altitude #3, and then a photoshoot of my nieces modelling!  It just doesn’t get any better than that 🙂

Altitude Twists: A cowl with very basic cabling using a single knit stitch throughout. That is all. Bulky yarn makes it a real instant gratification project.

 Altitude Ridges:  A timeless chevron texture from two stitches used, knit & purl. Just two, and in worsted-weight yarn.

And now forthcoming. . .

 Altitude in something traditional and most basic lace !
