Coffee Cup Poncho – コーヒーカップポンチョ


Plate01In March I visited Nagoya for a yarn exhibition. On my way back I had the opportunity to meet with the yarn company Olympus. We had coffee during the meeting. While we were talking I couldn’t help to look at the plate of the coffee cup. It had a very interesting geometrical pattern. It gave me the inspiration for a poncho. Interesting enough Olympus gave me a set of their new yarn ‘Tree House Berries‘. One ball of each color. 


olumpus_poncho02aBack home I kept thinking about the plate and my idea for a poncho. I didn’t have time to knit it, but really like the idea. So I asked a lady at my knitting class in Oomori to knit the piece for me. In return of a picture of the poncho, she would get the yarn and of course the poncho. I explained her the idea and how it could be knitted. She first made a gauge and a first sample of one of the triangles. Each is knitted using short rows and one ball of yarn. We had to invent a special wrap and turn stitch, to make the geometry work out.


Yesterday, she came to the class with the finished poncho. I truly love the way she used the colors. The piece looks like a contemporary piece of art. It reminds me of a Bauhaus painting. 

Slip Stitch Snood – 引き上げ目のスヌード



snood03aOver the past 6 month I have been knitting a small mountain of pieces for my next book. It will be published on October 5th. As I had to knit each piece myself, I didn’t have much time to make other items and show on my blog. 

But now all pieces are finished and I can experiment again with some new yarns I got. Last night I finished a small snood I knitted to test a pattern I really like. Knitted over 160 stitches with 4 mm needles.
