The Return of Loopy and Luscious

Back in the Winter of 2002, www.knitty.com published Loopy and Luscious, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTloopy.html a scarf pattern designed by Natalie Wilson.   Seventy-six yards of “thick-n-thin” yarn and 220 yards of laceweight mohair along with US size 17 needles presents a multitude of possibilities and challenges.  The term Scribble Lace describes the juxtaposition of opposites.  The uniformity of knit and purl stitches and the organic appearance of combining different gauges of yarn.

Knitting Loopy and Luscious and experimenting with ideas out of Debbie New’s Unexpected Knitting have been on my “to do list” Loopy and Lusciousfor many years.  Well, no longer do I put “my design wants and desires” on hold out of fear. I aLoopy and Luscious #2m no longer afraid to try something new and risk making a creative mistake.  After all, isn’t that when the best things happen?

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.
