Knitting from Dreams
"I dream; therefore shall I knit!"



Comfort Zone
This soft, cozy vest is basically a rectangle.  If you're a knitter, you'll know the short rows in the back give a little added flare.  The handmade porcelain button is decorative.  Closure is simply large hook and eye.  Pockets are very serviceable.  Hand wash cold water, dry flat.
Fits medium to large.

Autumn Dance
 
Fall foliage gives birth to the idea for this color combination of a rusty brown wool worked together with a very fancy Italian novelty yarn (Magico by Filatura de Crosa).  The sweater is knit from sleeve to sleeve and then the front panel is added.  The button is one-of-a-kind ceramic by artist, Alice Hunt.  The overlapping front is held in place by strong, tiny magnets!  
A Micki Smith original, of course.

   There are certain people in this world who are especially kind and generous.  Sohayla is one of those.  This shawl was knit in tribute to her, choosing her favorite colors. 
Here's hoping there is at least one Sohayla in your life!

Artist Vest
bsartistvestside.jpg
Knit in every conceivable direction!

This artistic vest is knitted in all directions from one color palette in my stash.  Each piece is knit, then a complementary border is put around all the pieces and laid out on a pattern of my design.  The pieces are then worked with the complementary color until the vest emerges.  Hours of work go into this kind of free form knitting.  Obviously, there will never be another piece exactly like this one.
 
Size: sm/med (36-38" bust)

Moonlit Meadow Sweater
 
Prototype for this sweater was made with handspun Icelandic wool from a ram lamb's first shearing.  The sweater itself was donated to the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival to be raffled off.
 
The sweater is knit beginning at the left sleeve cuff and continuing across, finishing with the right sleeve cuff.  It's so easy an advance beginner can finish it in a couple of weeks.
Pattern available.

Designs spring from what you know and see and want to remember.  A friend remarks on something special and you capture it in fiber.  A violet wants to be seen in winter and you create that wish.

Yates Autumn Jacket
 
  Tucked between the mountains in Brownsville, VT, sits the Yates Farm.  They raise market sheep and every year before sending the sheep off to market, they shear.  The fleece is then sent to a mini-mill in Maine where it is processed.  Once a year in November, for five days, the Yates offer this yarn for sale in their ancient farm house.  It's an event not to be missed if you're a fiber fanatic and a history buff.  It doesn't hurt if you're a skier either. 
 
  This sweater is made from some of that special yarn.  While the sweater is no longer available (adorning someone's back), you can purchase the pattern.  Any worsted weight yarn will fulfill the pattern requirements but if you can swing a November trip to Vermont, all the better.
