Ramblings of a color addict, jewelry and pattern designer, and constant knitter.

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