Don’t forget that all this week we have a small giveaway in operation – leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance.
Today is Day 3 of Knit/Crochet Blog week and today’s prompt is:
One Great Knitter
Write about a knitter whose work (whether because of project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash, etc) you enjoy. If they have an enjoyable blog, you might find it a good opportunity to send a smile their way.
Great heavens, is it Wednesday already?
There is a fairly good chance that the content of this post will come as a surprise to nobody.Â I imagine that there is a substantial probability that more than a few bloggers today will choose the same knitter as I am about to.Â There would be several good reasons for this: my knitter is also a spinner and a knitwear designer, a true fibre lover and connoisseur, and a superb photographer.
You have surely guessed by now that my choice for this entry is Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed.Â Given the choices above (project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash) it had to be Jared — because he hits all the buttons.Â I cannot help it.Â I love every single thing that he knits.Â I covet his stash — especially his handspun yarns, and I envy his vision — especially where he marries tweedy handspun yarns with large gauge projects such as the Hemlock Ring blanket.
Of his own designs, who would not love the Cobblestone Pullover, the Koolhaas hat, or the divine Girasole?Â Particularly as his patterns are so clearly and exceptionally well presented; he is a true professional.
Jared is clearly sympatico with fibre and he has a true talent, a real knack, for bringing out the simple beauty of knitting and fibre by marrying the two together in perfect harmony in every project that he picks up.
Not for one moment, do I believe that anybody reading this has yet to discover Brooklyn Tweed Â but just in case, here is the URL
Go feast your eyes…
Now, on the assumption that you already visited 47 blogs all advising you to take a look at Brooklyn Tweed… here’s a bonus knitter for you: Natalie Fergie at The Yarn Yard – dyer par excellence and keeper of a lively and interesting blog. Natalie is also the brains behind p/hop.
