NEW YEAR's Knitting and Sewing Plans

I have discovered a wonderful new knitware designer this year....Stephen West . He designs wild, asymmetric colorful pieces....many shawls but I like his sweaters best.  Here is my first one:

For you that understand "knit speak", this involved lot of short rows!

So my knitting plans involve as many Stephen West items as I can make, AND in the process using a lot of my yarn stash, since his patterns always use lots of colors.

My sewing plans include making things to go with my new knitted designs and more of those Tilton sisters paterns, which I think will soon be out.....can't wait to see what they have come up with next!

Happy New Year's sewing and/or knitting to you!


  1. Really love that sweater and the pattern. I must check into this designer--Mr West. My knitting comes in spurts and right now--not much mojo for it. However, I think I will return as our cold weather sets in here.

  2. Stephen's designs are just like he is - totally wild and fun! I love your version of his sweater, Peg.

  3. Thanks ladies! I am trying to knit up several more Stephen West design to wear to the Vogue Knitting Live classes next month. They are all SO different.

  4. You triggered me into getting this pattern (and a couple or others). I was wondering how you managed to get it to be more fitted under the arms?

  5. A beautiful sweater and an inspiring blog!
