Fall 2007 Knitter's Mag

Whew! I had a VERY full summer of knitting--16 sweaters, including this one below. Now it's time to work up a boatload of swatches! AND catch up on the blog...

Here's my son in the Canyon Ridge Vest that's in the Fall 2007 Knitter's Mag(he's trying to do the American Gothic thing with his gee-tar). The yarn was very nice to work with, and anything made from this yarn will wear well and look great for years.
I got the color pattern from a stripe design on an old Hopi basket. The basket was more of a round platter shape, and would be heaped with grains and gifts by the groom for the guests(I think). The pattern would make a nice pillow cover too, or placemats or a table runner. The repeat is only 4 stitches, so it would be easy to work into different sized ideas.
