Dakota Dreams Stranded Slipover

I just finished this garment this week and thought I'd share it. It is called 'Dakota Dreams' from the book "Fearless Fair Isle Knitting". As you can see from the design, it really isn't a Fair Isle pattern but rather it is a modern design done in stranded knitting. There are two offerings of the garment: this colourway for men and a softer one in blues for women.

Bowl me over.

Hey, so I'm a potter,(and a knitter, of course) and I thought I'd pick your all's brains. I do lots of yarn bowls, and recently thought of increasing my line. Is there anything you've been looking for, knit accessory wise that I could make, that you've been unable to find?

What I've been up to

It's been a long time away. Currently a potter who knits on the side. Yes, yarn bowls and things to store needles and notions. The things on my needles: Finishing a sweater for my mom. Finishing a Scarf made of tiny crocheted skulls (It just needs to be sewn together), and one of my favorite sweaters that needs retailoring and repair.

Happy New Year....and a question.

Hi everyone -

I hope you have all had a lovely Holiday Season [whichever tradition you celebrate] and have a Blessed New Year. I've received many lovely gifts - many of them fiber related - and hope you have as well.

Now - the question...

What (or Who) inspired you to learn the great art/craft of knitting?
