Computer programmer by day and knitwear designer extraordinaire by night, Amy Swenson created this beauty for knitty.com's fall surprise.
There were a few fits and starts with this design. Someone (ahem) might not have sent enough yarn in the beginning. You would think that that someone (ahem) would be able to do the math well enough to figure out that when a designer asks for 1200 yards of yarn that 8 skeins at 145 yards each is not enough.
You might also think that someone (ahem) would have tossed a couple of extra skeins in the box, just in case. Especially the second time.
To her credit, Amy was gracious and never even once suggested that someone (ahem) was full of stupid.
Brunello is one of two designs for knitty.com's fall surprise. It was designed by Amy and knit from Lorna’s Laces Green Line DK in 2ns Manzanita. Brunello will make a great transitional garment. The short sleeves will be just perfect for a sunny fall day. With the addition of long sleeved t-shirt underneath it would take you right through the winter. Even one in Toronto or Chicago.
