Summer 2013

Publishing a single magazine issue is no quick process.


Within that six to nine monthsfrom the first submission call to designers, through the knitting, pattern-writing, technical editing, and photo shoots, to final file production and page designmuch can change in the lives of the people working behind the scenes. In the time it took to create this summer issue, weve had a fairly significant change on staffEunny Jang, the former editor, stepped down and I took her place. When theres a change of editors, given the way our schedules work, its impossible for one editor to sign off on an issue and leave the next issue(s) solely to her successor. So this issue of Interweave Knits and the next few to come represent an amalgamation of our efforts. I am thrilled to move into this new roleits a culmination of my years of work in the knitting industry and in publishing. I came to Interweave eight years ago out of love for this very magazine. I worked with Eunny for six of those years, and its an honor to follow in her footsteps. I have fond, vivid memories of working on shoots with her: of me, the obsessively organized assistant, shot lists and sweater notes in hand, calling out We need to move faster! and of Eunny, the thoughtful visionary, finger on chin, analyzing the way light crossed the textured stitches of a gansey. We had a great working relationship, and now, friendship. Summer has always been a time of reflection for me. The longer days, evenings on the patio, travel, drowsy weekends by the water, and long hikes to high peaks all offer the chance to look back and forward simultaneously. So it makes sense that the summer issue is my first as editor. Having been part of Interweave Knits for years, I can reflect on where weve been and what weve done. And now Im ready to take us forward. With a feature by Deborah Newton (see page 84), one of knittings grand dames, and a profile of Amy Miller (see page 42), one of knittings rising talents, this issue itself encompasses the established and the budding. It is a stitching together that feels right. I invite you to stay tuned as we continue making connections and handing down thisour love of knitting.

Everyday GEMS
Silk reemerges in comfortable new blends and constructions.
AMANDA WILLIAMS

Silk is the original luxury fiber, with the first mention of silk stretching back thousands of years to ancient China. Long before jewel-toned skeins showed up in local yarn stores, silk was highly coveted by traders in Japan, Italy, England, and France. The cultivation of bombyx mori silkwormsdomesticated for so long that they cannot survive in the wildis an arduous, exotic process. Though bombyx silk is most common, silks from other silkworms are availablelook for tussah and Ahimsa silk, or for peace silk, so called because fibers are collected from cocoons discarded by wild live moths. Long, fine, and supple, with a natural iridescent shine, silk fibers of all types take dye beautifully. Though silk has impressive tensile strength, it is generally sensitive to abrasion, sunlight, and chemicals like those in detergent.

This seasons silk yarns have a versatility that makes a luxury fiber comfortable for everyday wear. While they still require careful care, silk yarns containing tougher fibers stand up better to casual wear and larger projects. Blending with wool or plant fibers also tones down silks shine, leaving a softer radiance thats sophisticated without making the yarn feel too heavy. These yarns are the youthful, lighthearted cousins of heavier silks. Modern silk blends are full of personality, running the gamut from soft and haloed to rich with rustic texture.

1 CLASSIC ELITE YARNS SILKY ALPACA LACE

Content: 70% alpaca, 30% silk Put-Up: 460 yd [420 m]/1 oz [50 g] Construction: 2-ply Care: Handwash cold, dry flat Recommended Gauge: 34 sts = 4" (10 cm) on size 2 (2.75 mm) The classic combination of alpaca and silk shines in a tidy 2-ply laceweight. Another season-spanning blend, this yarn is insulating, but soft and light enough for airy wraps and shrugs. Its weightless warmth makes this yarn perfect for projects that will go everywhere, from spring parties to chilly strolls. Muted solid colors help the silk content shine through alpacas halo, and give the yarn a vintage quality for instant heirloom appeal. Variegated shades are also available for wilder effects. While this yarn is perfectly suited to complex lace projects, the soft halo and drape radiate elegance and comfort in the simplest stitches. The gauge is variable, so try it with a variety of needles.

2 KNIT ONE, CROCHET TOO COZETTE

Content: 62% silk, 30% cotton, 8% polyamide Put-Up: 273 yd [250 m]/1 oz [50 g] Construction: 3-ply Care: Handwash cold, dry flat Recommended Gauge: 24-28 sts = 4" (10 cm) on size 26 (2.754mm) Cozette may become your new warm-weather staple. This cotton blend is easy on the hands, tempering both cottons stubbornness and silks slipperiness with a dry, powdery handle thats buttery soft. Cotton lovers will enjoy the beautiful drape that silk gives, and silk fans will be impressed by such a lightweight blend of ease and luxury. Cozette has a softly homespun texture with a casual, broken-in feeling that pairs well with a palette of pastels and brights. This versatile fingering weight drapes well at a variety of gauges, making it an elegant choice for everything from feminine shawls to swingy cardigans.

3 BERROCO FUJI

Content: 38% silk, 25% cotton, 22% rayon, 15%nylon Put-Up: 125 yd [115 g]/1 oz [50 g] Construction: Novelty Care: Machine wash in sweater bag, cold water, delicate cycle; lay flat to dry Recommended Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 7 (4.5 mm) A blend of natural and synthetic fibers, Fuji is a perfect example of a modern silk blend that can stand up to hard wearing. Its even machine washable! Fuji takes its raw, rustic texture from a clever construction; a deeply toned net of silk and rayon surrounds a lighter cotton core. Its quite firm for a novelty yarn, with a rounded, cordlike appearance that resists splitting while knitting. Each fiber takes dye differently, resulting in warm, tweedy colors that are softly muted. Dry and raglike in the skein, Fuji knits into a fabric with body and movement and a matte finish.

5 SCHULANA SILCO,

Content: 75% cotton, 25% silk Put-Up: 65 yd [60m]/1 oz [50 g] Construction: Novelty Care: Handwash cold, dry flat Recommended Gauge: 1214 sts = 4" (10 cm) on size 1115 (810 mm) An airy tape construction gives a floaty lightness to cotton and silk. Though technically a bulky weight, Silcos loose construction keeps stitches loose and breathable. The different fibers are visible in the skein and knit up with a variegated appearance that makes the most of Silcos ample texture. This yarn is soft and matte, perfect for sophisticated beach coverups or oversized sweaters. The drape is breezy and casual, especially at larger gauges. Needles with blunter tips will make easy work of handling the yarns open texture.

4 MANOS DEL URUGUAY FINO,

Content: 70% extrafine merino, 30% silk Put-Up: 490 yd [448 m]/3 oz [100 g] Construction: Singles Care: Handwash cold, dry flat Recommended Gauge: 2428 sts = 4" (10 cm) on size 35 (3.253.75 mm) A fingering-weight version of the popular Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, Fino is a lovely take on wool-silk blends that works for all seasons. Hand-dyed in large kettles on cooperatives in Uruguay, Finos exquisite striated colors show off silks affinity for dye exceptionally well. Silk gives the marbleized shades a beautiful sheen that looks equally good in openwork or swaths of stockinette. For larger pieces, alternating skeins is recommended to help blend differences in color. Spun in a soft singles construction, Fino is more delicate than the other yarns we tried. Cozy but elegant, this yarn is made for heirloom-quality pieces.

6 DEBBIE BLISS LINSILK,

Content: 50% linen, 30% viscose, 20% silk Put-Up: 219 yd [200 m]/3 oz [100 g] Construction: 2-ply Care: Handwash cold, dry flat Recommended Gauge: 1820 sts = 4" (10 cm) on size 67 (44.5 mm) Linsilk is a summer-friendly version of familiar fibers. This worsted-weight blend of linen, silk, and viscose is velvety and plush, with an almost felted appearance in the skein. Soft and slippery on the needles, Linsilk knits up into a slinky, flowing fabric with dramatic drape. Silks sheen is pronounced in this yarn, playing well with glossy, long-stapled linen for a fabric that truly shines. While less rustic than some of the other yarns we tried, Linsilk does have a slightly slubby texture and a feather-light halo that are perfect for everyday elegance. Rich and regal, this yarn is a great choice for pampering wraps and sweaters.

DISTRIBUTED BY KNITTING FEVER

7 SHIBUI KNITS HEICHI

Content: 100% silk Put-Up: 105 yd [96 m]/1 oz [50 g] Construction: Multi-ply Care: Handwash only in luke warm water, dry flat Recommended Gauge: 1620 sts = 4" (10 cm) on size 68 (4-5 mm) For a thoroughly modern take on pure silk, try the beautifully heathered Shibui Knits Heichi. Taking its name from the Japanese word for juxtaposition, Heichi is a luxury yarn that feels casual and contemporary. This raw silk tweed has a natural, beachy texture that can be dressed up or downthe soft, organic finish downplays silks signature shine, but retains a smooth, flowing drape and understated elegance. A wide palette of colors keeps the tweedy effect fresh and new, in shades from neutral to electric. The fairly loose multi-ply knits up with surprising lightness for worstedweight silk, making this yarn a versatile pick that can be worn in all seasons.

When you work two color stripes, carry the yarns up the side of the work and always bring the new color out from under the old one at a new stripe. This neatens the edge and creates a smoother transition between colors.

Tech Tip
Try substituting shank buttons for the flat buttons used in this project. You can add them while you knit by knitting to the button placement point and using a small crochet hook to pull the next stitch through the shank of the button before you knit the stitch.

PRT--TRICOTER:
Amy Miller Is Ready to Knit
SPIKE GILLESPIE
JUSTIN MILLER

In the decade since the knitting renaissance began, a new guard of amazing young designers has galloped onto the scene. They have not replaced or displaced the big names of yoreinstead, these newcomers pay homage to their knitting heroes in specific and in broader ways. Like those who charted the seas of patterns before themElizabeth Zimmermann, Barbara Walker, Mary Thomas, and many othersthe new breed creates innovative designs whose distinctive freshness is tempered by classic style.
Among these innovators, Amy Miller is a designer to watch. Though she is very much the new kid on the block (shes only been knitting for five years), its an understatement to call her a quick study. In the time it takes many knitters to work through a short list of projects, Miller has quietly built a mini-empire of stunning knitwear designs. Simple elegance is the common denominator across her impressive collection, whichdespite a limited Web presence

when her first child was born. By April 2008, her son was six months old and, as she tells it, she was going stir crazy. One day, to break the monotony, her mom took her to a local yarn store. What was to be a short tour of a fiber shop in the name of distraction turned into a much longer stay. I picked up a baby cardigan pattern and my mom said, Honey, why dont you try a scarf? This advice likely (she doesnt have a website or a blog)has came in part because her mother rememgarnered tremendous buzz on Ravelry, in magazines, and among yarn companies. And bered Amys only prior attempt to knit: rightfully so. She calls her newest collection Mom tried to teach me to knit when I was eleven. I made my dad a garter-stitch scarf. Ready to Knit/Prt--Tricoter, and her patterns are a siren song to knitting fashionis- Its about 1 feet long with really, really tas seeking both the joy of handcrafting and long fringe.

But Amy was determined to give the Before she took up the needles, Amy, who lives just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, little cardigan a shot, and a clerk encouraged her. She recalls when it clicked: It all with her husband and two small children, worked out. It made sense. My mind thinks was an accountant. She opted to stay home

spatially and mathematically. When she ran into a few bumps shaping the arms, she turned to her moms How to Knit pamphlet from the 1970s. From that point on, she taught herself more about knitting, using the stretches of time between her toddlers early bedtime and her husbands nightshift hours. From 7:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m., she practiced knitting. You know Malcolm Gladwells 10,000-hour theory in Outliers? she asks, referring to the bestselling authors claim that one only begins to achieve greatness after that much practice. I think I got those hours in then. Being a fast knitter had its plusesshe could try out all sorts of designs. But money was tight, so she struck a deal with a yarn shop. If the shop would provide the yarn, shed knit the samples. The shop could keep the samples for three months, then they were Amys. Thats how I learned the yarns, she says, And knitting so many patterns helped me learn more. As she began creating her own patterns, Amy Miller relied on her personal taste to come up with ideas. Ive always liked fashion.I usually knit what I want to wear. Thats how I judge a designif I dont want to wear it and if my mother couldnt wear it, I dont pursue it. Shes also influenced by the trends. She and her now five-year-old son, Rob,

recently enjoyed watching the Chanel fashion show. Theyve got crazy makeup and hairand he lets me know when things are too far out there, she says. Meanwhile, Amy looks closely at the styles. I like to take bits and pieces from the shows and create everyday wear. Really bright color blocking is hot; I might render it in more muted colors. But muted shouldnt be mistaken for dull or mundane. For example, Amys work has lots of stripes. Her cool Epirts hat got its name from spelling stripe backward. And her monochromatic work is embellished with sweet, knitterly details, like the buttons and delicate cables on her Bibbed Shirtwaist (Interweave Knits, Winter 2012). Though shes never short on ideas, Amy admits that she is a literalist. Ive always been mystified by mood boards, she says, referring to the ideas magazines send out to designers to indicate the types of patterns they want for an issue. When images include a beetle or a tree, Amys first response is to wonder whether they want a beetle on the sweater. I envy the

other designers who say, I was inspired by the oak tree. Although trees might not speak to her, weather certainly influences her work. Wisconsin winters typically feature many days when the high temperature barely hits double digits. So warmth is an issue and snowflakes are an inspiration, which is how her Flake cowl, knitted in Blue Sky Alpacas sportweight yarn, came about. The snowflake pattern immediately elicits a sense of old school knitting while the alternating color schemes suggest something new and exciting. Nothing makes me wish I were better at colorwork more than Flake, says Katie Mayer, Design Coordinator for Blue Sky Alpacas. The company, which also is home to Spud & Chlo, began offering yarn support when Amy approached them after publishing her Dockside Cardigan inthe Interweave Knits Summer 2011 issue and her Diana Cardiganin the Interweave KnitsWeekend 2011 issue. I love Amys design aesthetic, says Mayer. Right around the time I started at Blue Sky

THE DESIGNING LIFE

How do you get publishedand keep getting published?


Living in the Midwest gives Amy Miller plenty of opportunities to test-drive her warm creations when the thermometer dips. But geographically shes far removed from such designer-heavy locales as New York City. She knows that to stay on the design-world radar, she has to keep putting herself out there. I hustle, she says, referring to her ongoing efforts to reach out to yarn companies, publishers, and magazines, with submission packages and new ideas. Although she has yet to attend a knitting market where LYS owners mix and mingle with yarn companies and designers, she has started dipping her toes into big gatherings of the like-minded. She recently attended a Knit-In in Madison, Wisconsin, hosted by the Madison Knitters Guild. This summer shell be heading to Stitches, growing her connections and finding new fans.

Alpacas,Interweave Knitspublished Amys La Fleur Clutch (Interweave Knits, Spring 2012). My friends were buzzing about the pattern. After that,came Amys Bethany Wrap (Interweave Knits, Summer 2012). The look feminine but casualis totally what I feel most comfortable in and love to buy and make. When I saw her Dichotomy shawl, I knew for sure that Amy was one to watch, that her designs would consistently catch my eye and beg me to cast on. Amys relationship with Blue Sky Alpacas has deepened, Mayer says, as her portfolio has grown and her voice as a designer become more distinct. Women want to be comfy, but stylish, practical, but beautiful. Amy always manages to walk that line. Malabrigo Yarns also provides yarn support for Amy. She submitted Pendulum, a striped shawlette, for the Malabrigo Quickies calland ended up creating a pattern collection for the yarn company. Alex Tinsley, Project Coordinator at the company, says, Amys designs are extremely fashionable and classic at the same time, and she has a fantastic eye for detail. Weve got her

on board for an upcoming project, and I cant wait to see what shell come up with. The Malabrigo project, an e-book, will include six sweaters. Considering that she also self-publishes some of her patterns (distributed through Deep South Fiber) and the fact that she does all of her own knitting, its hard to imagine Amy sleeps much at all. She definitely gets some help from her family. The kids are a big part of the knitting experience. Rob helps me rip out stuff, she laughs. And her three-year-old daughter, Grace, also tries to lend a hand, though once she cut off the sleeve of a sweater that was just about to be sent to Interweave. Her husband, Justin, shoots photos for her. When she has developed a new pattern, she sends it to friend and fellow designer Kristen TenDyke for tech editing. Amys patterns are incredibly thorough, says TenDyke. She has a great attention to detail and can foresee possible problem areas

and simply explain how the knitter should navigate through themthe sort of things that are really easy to overlook. Dotties Pullover (Interweave Knits, Spring 2013), a cute polka-dotted sweater, is a great example of detail and a pattern that keeps knitters interested without scaring anyone off. I went back and forth on whether to shape the neck, says Amy. I decided against it because I wanted the pattern to be more accessible, so people can knit what they see. I stick with intermediate, not advanced patterns. Like all designers, she employs some prognostication. You design the patterns six to nine months before they appear, so you have to intuit or guess what will work, she says. Heres a prediction: keep watching Amy Miller, and dont blink.

Transforming a Lace Motif


DEBOR AH NEW TON

EXPERIMENTS FOR SUMMER YARNS

Knitted lace has long fascinated me, to the point of obsession. More than any other family of patterns, those for lace have given me more respect for our knitting ancestors and their skill in devising patterns. Without formal graph paper, without computer software, with just the work in their hands and probably some primitive paper-scratching, our brilliant knitting forebears from all over the world came up with stunning openwork fabrics. Yarnover and knit two together, or yarnover and slip, slip, knitsuch beauty from simply pairing an increase and a decrease!
As a young knitter, as I became acquainted with each volume of Barbara Walkers now-famous A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, I was captivated by the range of allover lace patterns, not to mention the lace trims and borders. Many are amazingly complex, some with increase and decrease elements on both right-side and wrongside rows. Some laces are smooth, others deeply textured. I was astounded that many lace patterns in Walkers books had been contributed by real people, such as Mrs. Leona Hughes of Sarasota, Florida. Who was she and how could she be so clever?
84 SUMMER 2013 { Interweave Knits }

My interest in lace has not diminished over the years. Recently I purchased a lace book from the late 1800s full of patterns, many new to even a well-versed lace-lover like me. If I ever retire from designing, I hope to explore lace with increased devotion and contribute more of my own efforts to our tradition.
LEARNING ABOUT LACE

around to make lace patterns of my own. Although theres software for designing lace on a computer, I like to use a pencil and graph paper to work out charted lace patterns. Sometimes, Ill design a pattern on paper, arranging yarnovers and decreases or arranging basic units of lace, then knit a swatch. At other times, Ill work out a pattern while Im knitting, noting the elements on a chart. With the help of a photocopy machine and some tape, I can cut and paste a chart, rearranging the basic elements to make variations, which I knit into a swatch to see how the new lace composition looks.
SIMPLE EXPERIMENTS

Swatching, combined with dissecting the elements that make up lace patterns, is an efficient way to learn about them. And Ive found that the basic elements of lace can be taken apart, played with, and moved

Let me share a simple experiment that offers one way to design lace: take a basic lace unit, alter and expand upon it, and use it to devise a range of different lacepatterns. In this case, I chose a simple diagonal line of lace patterning for my initial unit. The diagonal line is five stitches wide by eight rows high. I decided to place the knit two together (k2tog) decrease element

beyond the basics

before its accompanying yarnover, creating a line of texture in the patterning. (Had I placed the decrease after the yarnover, the decrease would face into the opening, instead of away from it, creating less texture.) My process for working with this unit of lace can be seen in the swatches and charts shown here. The basic process of manipulation applies to any other small shape you might start with. For example, you could use a lace element that formed a vertical line,
SWATCH

a small diamond or leaf shape, or a shape excised from an already existing pattern. A lot can happen as you knit swatches to test your patterns, so have some paper at handto make changes or to record aninspiration.
GETTING STARTED WITH YARN

With a range of yarns for summer, I set out to design some lace patterns that would suit the garments of the season.
Swatches 1 and 2 Swatch 3

SWATCH

I chose the simplest way to arrange my basic unit of lace for the first two swatches and repeated it horizontally. Doing so creates a fabric with visual interest, almost as easy to knit as plain stockinette. Swatch1, worked in a soft cotton and alpaca blend, forms a sweet fabric made even more suitable for the season with the addition of openwork. To show how a yarn can affect the pattern, I repeated the same pattern for Swatch 2, in a thick-and-thin tubular knitted cotton tape. Although I thought the texture of the yarn might obliterate the pattern, it actually contributes another layer of interest. I pressed my swatch lightly to fix the patterns in the fabric. The pressing gave Swatch 2 a crunchy-cool quality that would be perfect against the skin in warmweather.

I used a lightweight hemp yarn with a soft sheen to take the unit of lace to the next level. I re-drew my unit as a mirrorimage of the original, reversing k2togs into slip, slip, knits (ssk). Now, I had two units: the original k2tog unit slanted to the right, and my new version, using ssk as the decrease element, slanted to the left. I arranged the patterns horizontally again, but this time I alternated the different units in bands, divided by some garter stitch. For additional detail, I repeated Row 1 of the bands between the ridges of garter stitch. I used a fairly large needle for the yarn: the result was a cool fabric that would be perfect for a lightweight vest or flowing cardigan. The garter-stitch ridges flatten the typical curl of stockinette stitchbased lace, making it more suitable for reversible pieces, such as a summer scarf.

Continuing to manipulate the two units, I tried whats called a half-drop. By looking at the chart, you can see that one unit is placed half-way down the side of the other. I overlapped the units by one stitch, to bring the lace elements closer together. I swatched the

pattern as repeating nine-stitch panels, and recognized that the pattern was one Ive seen in pattern dictionaries! Its fun to see how many patterns have already been explored! I worked this graceful pattern in a soft blend with a small shiny slub that added interest. Drapey and cool to the touch, this fabric would work well for any summergarment. To experiment with using this panel in an isolated way, I placed 3 purl stitches to either side of the panel on my chart. I knitted Swatch 5 with a cotton-ball-soft textured yarn. The resulting fabric had a soft bumpy texture, in a weight that would be perfect for a cozy beach cover-up. The deep purl

ribs make the panel stand out: it would be an easy-to-knit lace focal point for a simple pullover.
Swatch 6

Then, to create a repeatable lace motif, a shape that could be arranged in isolation on a more solid fabric, I clumped the slanting units in groups of six, facing them toward each other. As I knitted the crisp and shiny cotton yarn, I decided to separate my units with bands of textured seed stitch. Such a crisp fabric would work well for a somewhat structured summer garment, one with more shape and detail.

For my next experiment, I used an escalator arrangement of the basic units, an approach not often seen in lace. When I try something totally new, I find it useful to chart the idea first. Unlike a simple arrangement where I can cast on and knit intuitively, this idea required a logistical layout. I decided to stack my mirror-image units, arranging them in a not-quite half-drop method. To emphasize the upward escalator movement, I drew in some staggered garterstitch ridges at both top and bottom. As I knitted, I corrected the little ridges on my chart to achieve a look I preferred. Knitted in a slightly heathered, crisp yarn, a simply shaped garment in plain stockinette would highlight this pattern. Swatch 7 cries out to be an allover pattern in a summer cardigan.

My last two swatches, worked in a softly mottled cotton, are related, and represent an exciting process that I like to employ. I start with a clear-cut arrangement of shapes, as in Swatch 8: two-unit clumps of the basic elements in a zigzag fashion. The resulting allover pattern had some additional visual interest where double yarnovers met. The texture of Swatch 8 would inspire a wonderful panel, dead center, in a long, dramatic pullover. Then, I copied my chart and cut it up! I taped it together in an altogether different way, even turning some elements upside down. I added some texture, using seed stitch and reverse stockinette. As I knitted, I adjusted my chart, and even pasted in a few extra rows here and there. The result was a highly unpredictable arrangement, shown in Swatch9.
In the End

I always encourage knitters in my workshops to set up a self-directed course of study to learn something new. Try using this sequential technique to explore a lace unit, letting one swatch lead to another. The possibilities are endless. And youll come to understand and maybe replicate and even improve onsome of the great patterns of the past.

I find linen very interesting. It starts out crisp, then with washing it becomes fluid, giving a wonderful drape to your garment. I thought it the perfect choice for this tank.

Would I have done anything differently?


I would have worried less, and knitted more . . .
MARY K AISER
ILLUSTRATION BY AMBER FELTS

After a six-day car trek from Alabama to New York, my daughter was settled as a freshman at the college of her dreams. I was back home, grateful to have made the trip without a hitch, but befuddled by loneliness. I missed her lilting chuckle, her mimicry, even her cranky silences. One evening in September, weeping into the onions on the chopping board, I realized I needed a distraction. I decided I would cheer myself up by knitting Anna a pair of mittens in time for the onset of cold weather. And keep on knitting until I felt better, even if it meant knitting a pair of mitts for every one of her 635 Facebook friends. Looking for a challenge that would demand my full attention, I found a pattern bristling with charts for cables and bobbles, a garter-stitch saddle and a gusset thumb. My yarn was a brick-red singles wool Id bought more than twenty years earlier when I was in graduate school. The skeins had traveled with me from my first teaching job to our first apartment to our first house and then to our second house. I was knitting with a thread of Annas history, one that began when she was just a twinkle in her dads eye. The red mittens turned out perfectly, rich in color and texture, just the right size for Annas long, narrow hands. Although I was intrigued with the clever thumb gusset, I still wept over the marinara sauce. On the other hand, a few weeks into her

fall semester, Anna was getting deeply involved in her courses in art history. Mitten project, stage two. Looking for a vicarious connection to my faraway daughter, I checked out a book of Pre-Raphaelite paintings from the library. I cast on with a fingering-weight wool dyed in bright, paint-box colors and felt the bright hues gradually warming my heart. By the time the colorwork mitts were finished, I was obsessed with mitten construction. Which would fit better, a flat thumb or a gusset thumb? What ideal width would hug the hand but not feel constricting? My third pair was my own design, using handspun yarns left over from a summers dyeing in horizontal stripes. After the third pair of mittens was washed and blocked, it was time for Family Weekend. I arrived at Annas dorm, laden with tote bags full of supplies from home. When I laid out the three pairs of mittens on her bed, Anna seemed a bit confused by my largesse. Sure, she liked them, but it was too early in the season to wear mittens, so she stored them in her dresser drawer. She had made a plan for our day, beginning with a meeting about the junior-year Study Abroad program. In a large classroom, we heard about programs in England, Italy, and France, Annas dream destination. On our way out, Anna bubbled over with excitement about taking classes

in an art studio on the Left Bank, living with a French family, renting a Vespa. Three years later, Anna is in her second semester of study abroad. Next year, she will graduate from college and seek her fortune like thousands of her intelligent, talented peers. She has gained skills and knowledge, loads of stories, and friends she will treasure for life. And I have gained confidence in my newly adult child, including a growing admiration as Ive watched her take on challenges I would not have accepted at her age. Would I have done anything differently if I had known when she first left what I know now? Yes. I would have worried less, and knitted more. Even though socks and mittens have fairly flown off my needles in the last few years, I know now that theres always a chilly student more than happy to get another pair. The stripes and wild curlicues have always had an appreciative audience. Ive also learned to back away in my helicopter and hover at a distance, while my fledgling gets a chance to try her own wings.
