big hat, big shag haircut

OK, I’ll admit it.

When I read that it was going to be 7

Thursday, January 17, 2008


this day in History:
1938: First jazz concert at Carnegie Hall
1949: The first TV sitcom debuts
1820: Anne Bronte is born
1899: New land speed record is set in a automobile…

2008: BB’s Beryl hits the catwalk…

Well! No speed records were set in the knitting of this garment, but VOILA! The Selkirk Beryl is finished! And it was FAST! Beryl #3 took a little over 4 weeks to knit; 4 skeins of yarn in Forest Brown and 4 brass buttons, more from my last rendezvous with Tender Buttons.

This sweater is incredibly light; it weighs about 14 oz. which is another plus in my book for the yarn used. Yarns in this gauge group (18/24) can be very heavy and dense. If you compare what we have in hand-knitting with what is out there in the commercial world, you see a big difference in hand and weight. IMHO, the Retail Rack has access to lighter, loftier, softer yarns
