This is my latest pattern, Restraint.
This is my most excellent husband, Tamas.
Itâ€™s so hard to be married to a knitter. (Yes, that was sarcasm). You get things custom-knitted for you, youâ€™re even given input on what you would like to have in the final product, and all the knitter asks is for a model when itâ€™s done.
Why â€œRestraintâ€? Because absolutely everything I suggested for the hat (cables got voted down here â€“ alas!) was vetoed. And so this is a model of considerable restraint, all things considered. Itâ€™s a simple, fast, fun knit and itâ€™s reversible, so if you want to knit one for yourself, you can wear the slightly-more-decorative other side facing outward.
Now: another very important thing to tell you about! My friend Gina from Alchemy Yarns is selling limited-edition hand painted scarves to fund the very important textiles-related work she’s been doing in Cambodia. Read more about it here.
100% of profit from these scarves goes IMMEDIATELY for relief to The Lotus Center, Kamping Puy and Battambang, Cambodia.
I will be donating all proceeds from sales made during the next week of the digital edition of my book to Gina’s project. Even if you’re not a designer, there are fascinating interviews with a number of designers you know and love, and Gina’s doing something amazing here. Thank you in advance…
