Inspiration Month

This January the company asked us to incorporate the company icon into a project that reflects something that inspires us. It should come as no surprise that I decided on a design that would incorporate a knitted piece.

Our logo, which can be seen at, is a pair of circular portals that open to various art pieces and so I chose to use both a knitted piece and the ball of yarn itself to represent the portal.

I found this wonderful wool that is a close match to the orange used frequently in our display work for $7 at the local yarn shop.


I decided to have some fun with this yarn. I picked up 2 skeins for $2 each, so made a pair of longer socks for my daughter. I used what Welden's calls a German Heel with a more rounded toe.
