Yesterday was the day that we received our first ever delivery of patterns from Brooklyn Tweed. The intrepid Jared Flood who has risen to star status in hand knitting circles helms the Brooklyn Tweed enterprise with steady and very busy hands. His designs revisit good old fashion basics to reveal new classics.
To date we have received the pretty Autumn Stole, and Pavement – a scarf with reversible cables, a cap called Fortnight and the much admired Rock Island Shawl, as well as Brownstone – a pullover with panache! More patterns are on their way. Arrival may be expected even before weeks end.
Only days ago Mr. Flood released even more patterns. His Fall 2011 look book can be looked upon here. This is hot on the heals of his last collection called the Wool People. What a prolific gentleman! Levenwick and Holl from the Wool People collection are already on their way to the Knit Cafe and I will work on securing patterns from his lovely Autumn line up as soon as possible. Please let me know which patterns you favor and I will add them to my wish list.
All the new patterns and the new yarns that have arrived over the last few weeks make a mathematician’s dream of possibility and probability equations. A new season of knitting is definitely upon us. This is truly in evidence with no math required.
