This past summer, as I mentioned before, I started doing some sample knitting for Brooklyn Tweed.The projects I knit were fun and challenging to do. They turned up in the BT Fall 11 collection and I would (finally) like to share them with you. First up is the Muir Hat, a garter stitch hat that is knit sideways and shaped at the crown with short rows.

Unfortunately, all I have is this iPhone work-in-progress photo. I forgot to take pictures of the finished deal before I sent it off.

I also knit the Lockhart Mitts, both the long and short versions.

It was a privilege to work on these great designs on the Brooklyn Tweed sample knitting team. And getting skeins of Shelter in the mail to knit these up was an added bonus. I am currently working on another sample this very moment in the new yarn Loft. You will have to wait and see what these gorgeous skeins are knitting up to be!
