Musings of a Red Hat Knitter about her knitting passion and her life.

The sock is the Knitters Brewing Company Knit Along on Ravelry. Pattern is free at this time and is called, With a Twist from the Knitters Brewing Company. Because I wanted to start immediately, the yarn is from my stash and is from www.yarn4socks.com and is hand-dyed yarn from A Piece of Vermont; fiber is 60% merino, 30% bamboo and 10% nylon. Knitters Brewing Company is a fun web site-www.knittersbrewing.com. The emphasis is on sock knitting and patterns and yarns are named for beverages. Their service is terrific. I ordered 2 skeins of yarn, it was shipped that same day and arrived 2 days later. Each skein was individually gift wrapped and I received a hand written thank you note in the package!
This is Braided Top by Marianne Isager, made from her yarn, cotton and linen. I am teaching this class and started doing it without having knit the pattern myself because the store already had a sample. All the time I could save! But, preparing for the class, the construction of the top was so intriquing, I started this at the first class. It was a fun knit.
