Hard-Rock Knitting!

More often than not, a piece I am designing will speak to me as I knit.  Guided by a particular stitch pattern--the way the stitches twist or turn will call to mind a person or a place and this will become the patterns "name".

In the case of Neptune Rising, it was the yarn that was doing all the talking—singing in fact, accompanied by sizzling guitar riffs!  

I couldn’t help but think of Jimi Hendrix and I’ve come to believe that if he were alive today and took up knitting, Victory Fingering would be the yarn he would choose. Electric lime, scorched lemon, purple (Haze) and (Fire) red run riot throughout these skeins and bring your stitches to life!


warning signs: callsign
Knitted Wit’s yarns should come with a warning label:
This yarn Rocks—HARD! 

Are you…Experienced?

Looks like we have a Partial Print!

When you're looking for clues, a "Partial Print" is a good thing.  It can shed some light on the mystery at hand and give new insights on a case.



So maybe I've been watching a bit too much NCIS lately--or perhaps not, as the show has inspired this lovely cap.

Mostly Smooth (like Tony), with a bit of rugged texture (Gibbs), this cap looks great inside and out--literally!  I can picture the whole crew McGee, Abbs, even the Autopsy Gremlin rockin' this hat, can't you?

Under the Influence

As a self-proclaimed yarnaholic, I often fall prey to beautiful yarns.  Most of my friends know about my addiction and chalk it up as one of my “quirks”.  My really good friends join me in my full-on fiber frenzies and introduce me to new yarn shops where new and exciting skeins leap into my bag while my will-power (and my money) desert me completely!


These patterns were born after my dear friend Sharon introduced me to a new stash-builder.  I of course,  went along with the notion that I really “didn’t need any more yarn”, but quickly fell under the influence of this luscious Cashmara yarn, beautifully dyed by Pat, from Fly Designs—and when Sharon suggested that we both should get some —well, it just seemed rude not to!
