Long time readers of the blog will know that I’m not a KAL kind of knitter for the most part. Everynow and then I participate, as I did with this poncho pattern with the Sheeper Than Yarn gals in the Fresno area – it was a retreat project one year. Apparently I don’t have the group photo of our ponchos together:
So it is fun and not common to see another knitter with the same/similar finished item. Last month, Pam, who is in the Knitted Knockers of Silicon Valley group, wore her Leftie shawl, and so did I! The pattern is Leftie by Martina Behm.
This past Saturday as I was leaving the house, I was trying to figure out which cowl/scarf/shawl to wear, and changed it out at the last minute. And lo and behold, Pam was wearing a very similar one to mine. We twinned again with our knits!
They are not the same pattern – mine has a different way of making the holes than Pam’s, but it was quite the coincidence to be wearing the same kind of item again, and this time, we picked similar gradient yarns to use. The pattern I used was the Spindrift scarf by Lucy Neatby. I’m not sure what Pam’s pattern was.
When have you been “twinned” with a knitted thing in the wild?
