Alex's triumph.....

I am thrilled to report that the splendid Alex Peabody, age 12, has finished his first garment -- a wondrous sweater vest made out of Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair in a great, heathery shade of teal.  He began with a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern, but soon began adding things -- like pockets, a wider neckband, and then some buttons made of handblown glass in the shape of fish.  So it's truly an original.  So is he.  And don't miss his equally splendid friend Dierdre, shown at the table in the studio (second image), working diligently on HER first sweater, a pullover of my design made of Trendsetter's Tonalita.  Alex now has in mind making a Henley pullover...........stay tuned.      svb
