Yoo Hoo Department
September 16, 2003
First of all, I’m sure you’ll join me in sending a big yoo-hoo out to our friend Yvonne in London, for letting us be the first on our respective blocks to have the first issue of the UK’s new, and apparently only, knitting magazine, called ‘Knitting’. (The collector in me is hyperventilating, to have the first issue of anything–quel thrill! ) For their first issue they really made an effort and included some lovely things including the first Kaffe pattern that I think might strike your fancy as something you, yes you, might actually wear. It’s an understated-for-Kaffe jacket called ‘Provence’. (To those just tuning in, at MDK we are on a first-name basis with both Country Music Hall of Famers and Major Deities of Knitting; they don’t know who the heck we are, but we are on a first name basis with them).
Thank you Yvonne!
And what would a yoo-hoo be without a gratuitous pic of my latest project?
This little still life is going to be a scarf/shawl/drapey-shoulder-thing called ‘Anntorp’ from Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton’s book of Noro designs. I’m using a different color of of Noro Iro (left over from the bag I made for last spring’s Rowan International exchange), and substituting 4 colors of Cash Iroha for the Silk Garden, since this project is all about virtuous stash-busting. I figure, on #15 needles, and in such gorgeous colors, what could be bad? It’s time to get the teacher-present-machine cranked up again!
Yoo-hoo! Love, Kay
