Today in Portland: for those of you who asked about where the BRYNNA photoshoot was – we went about a mile away from our new PDX neighborhood to a place called Laurelhurst Park.

It is a smallish park right in the middle of the SE side and has a little waterway right in the middle – Firwood Lake!

“In 1919, the Pacific Coast Parks Association named Laurelhurst Park the “most beautiful park” on the West Coast, and in February 2001 it was the first city park ever to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.”

And it is really awesome – couldn’t help but climb some of the Jurassic-sized trees – both of us were several feet off the ground for this shot — yikes!

Chic Knits Brynna

Here’s a little something to layer over your warm weather looks: BRYNNA.

I needed something light & easy to travel with for all those evenings (and indoor air conditioning) and voila! A no-sew, lacy little cardi was born…

The sample used HEMPATHY but I now have another one going using a cotton alpaca blend (SERENA) that is turning out really gorgeous.

BRYNNA features a no-sew construction in an easy-to-work lace pattern finished with a pretty but simple open-work neckband in DK weight yarn. This is a design that works well with wool or cotton (or all the blends – silk – bamboo, etc).

(It also is easy to modify to make it longer whether you want a more traditional length sweater or longer sleeves.)
