Hello Again & Knitting Links #1

I’ve been gone for so long, I feel like I need to reintroduce myself! I have been more than busy this season and I’m going to have to change that. I definitely need to rearrange some priorities. I am determined to include more knitting time. I have so many great knitting links and blogs to share that I’ll just start off with a couple and give you time to enjoy them. Then I’ll list a few more next time. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

First, check out Brooklyntweed. His name is Jared Flood and he’s on flickr, twitter, blogs and has a website. He teaches knitting but I simply enjoyed looking at his work. His technique is amazing and his color choices seem natural yet subdued and perfectly suited to the pieces he works. Love it! I wish he offered some free patterns but I couldn’t find any. I really enjoyed his circular needles version of the baby pants pictured above.

The original baby pants pattern can be found from Shibui Knits out of Portland. I couldn’t find any free patterns on there site, either, but there is enough eye candy to inspire you for sure!

Ponoko: Laser Cut Your Own Designs!

I’m posting extra today to make up for several missed postings in the past couple of weeks. Check out this site: Ponoko. You provide the concept and they make it a reality. Very interesting, unique and creative offerings. Check out the blog here. I love all things type so, of course, the helvetica necklace just suits me fine but look at the other stuff – puzzle cars, octopus desk art. Reaffirms to me just how creative people can be: brilliant!
