knitorious patiently awaits the arrival of Vogue Knitting Winter 2011/2012. Nestled between the pages of the latest and greatest knitting patterns emerges a skirt with a Missoni-esque look. The chevron pattern speaks to the signature design of a Missoni knit. What a perfect opportunity to knit, replicate and wear a design reminiscent of a classical standard of quality.
knitorious and Knit Interest Clique trekked up to the East Bay to catch a glimpse of an Estonian Lace exhibit at Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles in Berkeley, CA. Pieces of the lace were displayed on a black background hanging from the ceiling of the museum.
Driving down the infamous Telegraph Avenue toward Oakland, Article Pract appeared in all its glory. In the window display, a knitted shawl using Prism yarn sparkles with beads, as it gracefully drapes over the shoulder of the store mannequin. Color and texture decorate the walls from floor to ceiling with soft lighting enhanced by sunlight entering the street window. Yarn, buttons, silk ribbon, books and notions embrace the savvy knitter. The knitters-in-residence are welcoming and helpful.
