if you’ve been reading this blog for a really, really long time, you may remember this knitted artifact i inherited back when we lived in vancouver.
well, designer larissa brown either remembered it or stumbled upon it when searching for designs and designers for her newest book, My Grandmother’s Knitting. she asked me to do an updated version of the cape – which can now be seen here on ravelry. the original? the bottom was knit as a separate piece and sewn on. mine, not so much ;) seamless.
my copy of the book hasn’t shown up yet, but i do have a few words to say. first of all, i love larissa. she’s just my kind of knitting geek… interested in the interactions between people, history, knit objects. in other words, she’s interested in knitting, but also the deeper meanings and relationships that go along with it. her first book, Knitalong, was a lovely example of this and i expect this one to be equally as fabulous.
