It’s the largest, grandest, most popular, and most renowned thing ever, though it’s not always considered a success. But it’s big. It’s the Magnum Opus.
Adrienne Martini blogs at MartiniMade, where you can see her recently completed Mary Tudor sweater. Her first book, Hillbilly Gothic: A Memoir of Madness and Motherhood was published by Free Press last August. Adrienne has written about the process of knitting the Mary Tudor sweater, and its controversial designer, in her new book, Sweater Quest, scheduled for publication in March 2010.
Alice Starmore’s wonderful patterns and equally wonderful writing can be found on her website, Virtual Yarns. Unsurprisingly, the Oregon Cardigan, calls to me, and is one of my favorite of Alice Starmore’s designs.
The rest of the Starmore Saga can be pieced together with a little help from Google. Or, you can save yourself a heck of a lot of time, and wait for Adrienne’s book.
The Koigu wrap I talked about in the podcast has been identified, thanks to Honda! It’s the Colourflow Wrap, designed by Christa Giles. If her name sounds familiar it’s because Crista is also the host of the podcast ChristaKnits, and it was she designed who the little pink “iKnit to Cast On” buttons. Props to Crista for a really simple, yet thoroughly inventive design.
