Today Brooklyn Tweed debuted their first collaborative designer series that they are calling Wool People. I’m delighted to count myself among the designers featured! I’d like to introduce you to Vega, a colorwork beret knitted in Brooklyn Tweed SHELTER yarn. Check out these beautiful photographs from their website:
The design includes two sizes and features a 2-color pattern worked from a chart on circular needles. The woven motif has integrated crown shaping that narrows to a charming little star shape at the top. This hat was a delight to knit not only because of the beautiful Brooklyn Tweed SHELTER yarn, but also because the chart repeats are easily memorized.
I’m just dying to hear what you all think! Please let me know by leaving your comments below.
It’s been a busy week around here! I announced the lucky winner of my first twitter contest over on my other website, alexiswinslow.com. Congrats to @Saschaguinn who will be receiving a free print of my painting, Thunderhead. For everyone else who entered, I have a special offer for you too!
I also had the pleasure of being interviewed by Deborah over at Interrobang Knits for her series, “Knitters You Should Know”. It was a fun interview and she asked some really great questions. You should all go check out her site because Deborah is a great writer and she’s got some neat stuff going on over there.

I’ve also been busy working on the big re-design of Knitdarling.com! I’m so very excited to share the new design with you all and it pains me so very much that it’s taking so very long to get it launched! It’s been only a year and a half since the initial launch of Knitdarling, but it seems I’ve totally outgrown this old site. Most notably, the new site will feature a new home for the video series I have started. Also, in the next year I’ll be doubling my patterns for sale, so I’ll be adding a list of categories to make my patterns easier to sort through.
