This weekend I headed north to San Francisco and ended up having a very yarny weekend. I wasn’t feeling well on the plane, so no actual knitting got done, but nonetheless it was a weekend full of fiber and inspiration.
The kickoff was a Saturday morning trip to the Ferry Building downtown. The market is a pretty big one and the empty-on-a-weekend downtown that I remember was completely replaced by good sized crowds of people milling around checking out the market, wandering along Embarcadero, checking out the spectacular views of the bay and just generally enjoying the beautiful sunshine. My friend and I were minding our own business, chatting together and heading for the apple stand when we spotted the most beautiful sweater ever. I mean really, this was a total stunner. I’d been teasing her that she is next in line for a knitted gift and she pointed out the sweater in awe. “Can you make that?” she asked. “Sure,” I replied, “But I’ll need a photo.”
We tried to snap a sneaky picture but it was way too far away and fuzzy, so we swallowed our pride and just asked for a snapshot.
Here it is:
If this is you, thank you for sharing your sweater with us! Someday I hope to be able to re-create this pattern.
