|Hanging out at the knit table in the back of Knitty City. I am wearing Hitchhiker, and|
Martina is wearing Matchmaker, her new pattern.
|Original Hitchhiker. A lot of Martina's patterns are designed to avoid purling, |
especially her larger stoles and shawls.
|Talking about Lefty.|
|All of the original samples. New York Spark is the pink and navy hat at the top of the pile.|
After her talk and trunk show, Martina had a little bit of a surprise: she brought several skeins of Wollmeise Pure (100% Merino fingering weight) from Germany! One of the colors was actually the color used in the original Hitchhiker. We threw our names in a hat and I thought I would not win.
In fact, I was the first winner! I had a hard time picking since I had a choice of the 5 colors, but I ended up with Die Auster which is a lovely teal and pale green with a bit of cream:
|I never took German so I asked Martina what "Die Auster" meant - "The Oyster." Love.|
Special thanks to Pearl at Knitty City for hosting, and Martina for taking the time to chat!
Thanks for listening!
