What I've been knitting, part 1


So you may be wondering what's been on my needles these last few months. I've been lucky enough to knit some samples for some of my favourite knitterly peeps.



First up, two pieces for Brooklyn Tweed's latest collection: BT Men.

Quay is a beautiful cabled scarf designed by Jared Flood.







The other sample I made was Fort, a great everyday pullover also designed by Jared.





You can read more about this classic sweater and what inspired the design here.

The rest of the Men's collection is just as gorgeous. My husband is eyeing Redford, and I would love to sink my teeth into a version of Timberline for me, making it a bit longer for a perfect forest-rambling sweater.

(As always, thank you to Brooklyn Tweed for giving me this wonderful opportunity, as well as letting me use their gorgeous photos.)
