Dalesmen by Martin Storey

The light in the morning has begun to glow a little orange while coming in the windows at a lower angle. Though the air has not yet turned crisp, that lighting is a sure sign of the coming fall and the knitting bug begins again.
This book of men's designs that I happened upon by Martin Storey for Rowan yarns is just about torture. Which one to make and which yarn to choose. I also love the photography and settings. Time for a little travel to go with that knitting.

The Samurai Knitter

If you are interested in some paintings check here.
Honestly where was this woman when I was knitting mohair sweaters as a teen. I had no idea back then that the sweaters I began wouldn't look on me the way they looked in the books or magazines.
The Samurai knitter reviews Vogue Knitting every issue and it is really remarkable the way she sees things that we all might miss.

The Betsey Girl

Love the Vintage Betsey Johnson look as she ventured into making patterns for Butterick called Alley Cat. Here is just a sampling of her work then and a pattern. A wrap dress with a hood, keep a lookout for this.
