Original patterns, comments and works in progress, all from Chris' knitted world.

The last few weeks were seriously busy. I had a lot of sewing, a lot of golf, and a lot of family business to deal with. At the same time I have been using my knitting for the precious down time I crave. Here's some photos.
This is a new visitor to the Japanese Maple outside my kitchen window. He was making a cool tap tap tap sound as he checked out the various branches.
I have never seen one so close to my house.
Here is a new pattern, a DK weight cotton Union Jack sweater, in black and white! I used black, grey and off white in a classic flag intarsia pattern. This pattern will be posted along with the flag chart for those who like following charts!
This one is half done, a cotton knit cardigan with lace on the back and sleeve, as well as up the front edge. It has a hood. The pattern in from Vogue Knitting, with some minor changes by me. I will post changes and photos when done.
And this is the yarn I just received via Canada Post. The denim is a cotton, and the brown is a wool blend. Not sure what they want to become, but a swatch may help the yarn speak to me!
