Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Book Number Two

Just recently picked up this book from Knit Happens.

These are just a few of my favorites. I just happen to have a little Kochoran in my stash that I will use to make Gesta. And I really want a shawl, however I am not quite ready for lace work yet. But this Sursa is paired up so well with denim and I think I will be able to get a lot of wear out of it.

Tovesta and Klaralund

I may be casting on for Klaralund soon. What a beautiful sweater! Definitely my favorite in this book. And that Tovesta bag is a must-knit.

I've been eyeing the Klaralund, too. I didn't realize you were in the Knit Happens area. Moxie and I are moving out that way this fall, so perhaps we will meet up out there. It's always good to have some knitting friends.

What pretty patterns! I'm so jealous that you can go to Knit Happens! It definitely seems to be the new "cool girls'" knitterly hangout. :)

I ordered this book after seeing Wendy's post on it. I love Klaralund. That's a definate this winter. Gesta looks very cute also. I live in Maryland and a few of us want to make a trip to Knit Happens very soon. I can't wait!

I love Klaralund. I saw this on Wendy's blog too. Maybe seeing it twice in one day means I should get this book so I can make Klaralund.

Can't wait to see your photos of it!

I've got relatives in NoVA so one of these days I'm going to make it into Knit Happens. Looks like it's a really nice store.

Now that I've seen that I have to get the book. That shawl pattern is just gorgeous, what yarn does it use? Thanks for showing us the pictures, you've got me hooked!

Klaralund is SO gorgeous. I expect there will be a knit-along for it, looks like a lot of knitbloggers are crazy about it. I LOVE the sleeves!
Looking forward to seeing yours!

My, my. Klaralund is indeed a beautiful sweater. I'd love to add that to my list also. I also wish I lived near the VA area. I'd love to hang out and knit with the cool gals.

Hi ! I love the Sursa and Klaralund too. I only have a few Silk Garden and Kureyon in my stash. I think I need to acquire more yarn to make them.

Beautiful patterns! That Tovesta bag and Gesta are must-haves :-)

Looks like a great pattern book - I haven't seen that one yet in my lys. I like the structure of the Klaralund, isn't it a bit like a big version of your mohair Grace?

I love the Klaralund pattern, too. I think I MUST buy this book ;-)

Froggy, I think we need a Klaralund-along! Whaddya think? I've got the book, I've got the yarn. Maybe in September??

Posted by: Wendy at July 27, 2004 07:56 AM

Besides, Klaralund-along is just so much fun to say out loud. ;-)

Lovely Noro patterns! What yarn is the Sursa? If it's Kureyon, Shinano or Silk Garden and no more than 10 skeins I'll have to get the book and make it. Does Knit Happens take online orders?
