Stitches West 2013

Next week, I plan on attending Stitches West 2013, wearing a new sweater knit using NORO Kuryeon Col. No. 185, Lot No. K.  The unique knitting pattern  is from NORO the World of nature, Vol. 15, Y-698.   In the process of organizing my knitting literature, I found buried treasure…Vol. 15.  I’ve kept this volume tucked away for atleast five years and was delighted to discover it all over again.   The act of casting off stitches creates pockets which render an interesting dimensionality to the surface of the sweater.  The sculptural qualities of the pattern are enhanced by the color gradations of the yarn.

I’m attracted to Japanese knitting patterns (translated) because of the visual straight forward instructions and attention to rows.   This year at Stitches West, I am looking forward to a class entitled, Understanding Japanese Knitting Patterns taught by Gayle Roehm, in order to expand my knowledge of Japanese pattern symbols.

I hope to attempt a pattern designed by Setsuko Torri, detailed in Setsuko Torii Hand Knit Works.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
