Knit Red

I'm excited to have been asked to be a part of Knit Red – a new book collaboration between Jimmy Beans Wool and Vogue Knitting. For my contribution to the book, I thought a red reprise of the Druid Mittens (Remember these? They were featured on the cover of Vogue Knitting magazine in the Fall of 2008) would be beautiful.

The second time I walked out the front door I savored the chill and ended up spending much more time out in the city than I have in quite some time. The arrival of Fall this week (not on the calendar, but in feel) seemed like the perfect timing too, since...
