Something for the weekend


This is just a short one as I run around preparing for Unravel (hope to see you there!):

Military styling and inspiration are fashion staples.  The khaki green and sharply structured garments have an enduring appeal that is rarely far from the catwalk.

The Marshal Cardigan by Norah Gaughan is a beautiful example of the look.

I admit I am a little obsessed with this one.  I really love the unusual brioche-stitch detailing. I know that there are many knitters who won’t knit a pattern that involves seaming, but I would argue there are advantages to the seams. The set-in sleeves create a clean line & structure that can’t be replicated with seamless methods.

Happy knitting!
