This weekend I set aside my knitting to look for bears with a North Cascades Institute class taught by Chris Morgan. Although we saw many bear signs we didn’t actually see one. If you’re ever interested in learning more about bears, Chris gives a very informative and highly entertaining class.
Being such an avid knitter I always keep an eye out for any interesting sweaters that catch my eye wherever I go. This afternoon on my way to the bus, I spied a woman wearing a very interesting multi-colored hand knit sweater. At least I think it was hand knit.
As I stood behind her waiting for the street light to change, I noticed that my eyes started seeing very subtle large diamond shapes in the fabric, with some of the diamonds being more prominent then others. Perhaps the diamonds blended together so well because each appeared to be knitted with two strands of yarn. It sort of reminded me of color blended quilts that I’ve seen but with a much more subtle affect. It would be simply gorgeous done in hand spun yarns.
I did a google search for color blended sweater patterns but didn’t come up with anything. If anyone has heard of a pattern like this I’d be interested in learning more about it. In the mean time, I’ll keep searching the web.
