…photograph from 1877 (!), the impeccable Walt Whitman in a modern looking cardigan mit butterfly (cardboard)!

From the ribbing to the zigzag cabled front to the striped bands, this sweater would look right at home in most closets a mere 137 YEARS later in 2014.

I am not only blown away by the styling, I’m inspired by the knitting. :)

Chic Knits Knitting Blog

While the wintery skies are still cloudy over Portland, I’ve been keeping busy with some new friends!

This month kicked off a Knitalong with the lovely stitchers at the Net Loft up in Cordova Alaska.

We all got together a few evenings ago via a live chat and all started making a Chic Knits HE SAID SHE SAID cap! I just finished mine yesterday – you can see it in the middle shot above. BLUE has been my favorite lately and this is a nice way to ease into the new season (it’s still chill here!) with a lovely burst of color.

It was great fun and really made me start thinking about how its getting closer all the time to something I’m really looking forward to this summer.

I’ll be joining the KALsters in person in Cordova and would like to invite YOU to join us as well!

Along with a great roster of workshops, there’s all sorts of things to enjoy in and around one of the PacificNW’s most lovely areas…


When: June 22-29, 2014
Where: Cordova, Alaska
What: 5 days of fiber art workshops led by a variety of instructors!

I will be teaching several classes including:

Sweater Evolution &
The Sweater Organic

Join me for some great new techniques and fun!
