Lynne was Knitter Zero. The lovely Lynne showed up at a Knitty Roundtable wearing her Lanesplitter skirt, and we all fell over at the wonder of it and how flattering it was on Lynne, and Jillian and I almost immediately cast on for our own.
At least five or six other knitters who were there that night have made their own, including Susie L, Jennifer and Lynn W.
We had a mini-reunion last December, my skirt with Lynne’s, and Susie L’s terrific version.
It's all Lynne's fault.
The contagion continues to spread… Kate inevitably infected Denny (although their styles are very different, they are spiritual knitting twins), Lynne passed it to Sue, and Jillian and I finally found a sheep-free yarn for Amy to knit one of her own,Â Lang Yarns’ Sol DÃ©gradÃ©.Â Last weekend, we once again gathered around Lynne for a new photo op.
L to R: Amy with Lanesplitter-to-be, Sue, Kate, Knitter Zero Lynne, Jillian and at the bottom, Denny.
Amy may have cut the tip off her finger a few weeks ago, but it is healing well, and she’s resumed kniting…slowly. She’sÂ making great progress so far, even with her injury.
not so bad for non-wool, eh?
