Winding down after a busy Solstice season of Holiday shows and Farm work, it was fun to sit down and work on some Holiday gifts for loved ones. It was particularly intriguing to invent this mathematically complex cable design in a cap for my eldest grandson Elliot. I used elements of classic buckle braids in mirror image, interlaced with horseshoe cables.
Messing with the chart as work is underway, I always design ‘on the fly’ it seems.
The finished hat on the husbeast (easier to get him to hold still than to get Elliot to cooperate 🙂
I also did up a quick pair of mittens for my middle grandson, he now wears them non-stop!
I re-visited my fenceline Mittens design for this project
He’s always such a happy little camper
I did a pair of Celestial themed mitts for my daughter which have been in the works for some time, I was so happy to finally get them done:

All Done, and fitting for a Soltsice Celebration!
cuffs feature phases of the moon, palms have little stars
My initial design sketch, sort of pleasing to have the original concept somewhat resemble the finished product 🙂
Anne was recently featured on knittingrobin’s website in an interview (click on the link below). Many thanks to the incredible and talented Robin Hunter and her wonderful and informative knitting blog, such an honour!
In other news: This design, the Tai Huri-Huri Hat & Mitts set, has recently been translated For knitters in Germany and was chosen as the cover image for the German language version of the Knitting Hats & Mittens from Around the World book from Voyageur Press (featuring 10 of Anne’s designs) Very thrilling to be reaching out to that part of the EU, there are so many excellent German knitters, and in this season of FIFA World Cup Fever -Great football (aka soccer) players too!
