ravelry link time!

there is a phenomenon with us humans. in art it’s called a movement. i call it a universal consciousness . it’s really quite fantastic when you think about it & no matter how different or isolated or geographically displaced from each other we are, sometimes it happens and there is a global click.

i had seen a lot of little girl’s dresses with these longer backs and i said to my dear friend mare, “i want to knit a sweater sort of like that. you know, not as big and stuff ‘cause it would be a sweater.” and she said “that’s a great idea! i’ve seen those, too. you should totally do it.” (i’m not sure what we actually said, but this is pretty close.)

so, i did & i even wrote the pattern and took some goofy pictures and sent it off into the inter-web-space & BAM! everyone loved it because maybe everyone was thinking, “i wish i had a sweater that was sort of long in the back like all those little girl dresses i keep seeing, but not as much because it’s a sweater.”

then, i get on ravelry every day because i make it a habit for my friday links and i don’t want anything super fantastic to slip through the cracks and i start seeing MORE sweaters that are longer in the back (or on the side in one case) and i giggle and chuckle and laugh at the heavens because we really were all thinking that. how silly.

… and i’m sure there are more on the drawing boards & soon to come.

this is a weekly list of recently added items to ravelry.

i link them because i love them.

i look for articles with superb fit or drape & clever shaping, textures, and patterns. my hope is that i connect a knitter with a fantastic pattern they may not have noticed on their own as well as offer support, encouragement, and yes, even some free promotion for the hard working designers.

enjoy monday
