Jared (aka Brooklyn Tweed) has a nifty tweed (what else?) sweater pattern in the latest issue of Interweave Knits. Can't wait to make it for my son.

Forget the design....they should hire him to do the photography! And, he just got a Kromski Minstrel, too. We spinners are in trouble!

I have been a longtime but silent worshipper of Jared's work and am thrilled to see him published. I so admire his aesthetic sense, attention to detail, and meticulous craftsmanship (and that applies to the photography as much as the knitting). Plus I'm a sucker for anything tweedy. Here's hoping we see many more of his designs in the future.

KarenB: I agree, I absoluely love his sensibility and craftmanship. It always adds to the day when he posts something on Brooklyntweed.

As a side question: his sweater in IK has a lovely simple garter stich yoke, does anyone have any thoughts as to whether such a design would suit a barrel chested man?

Another fan here -- of his knitting, his photography, and his creative sensibilities. Heck, I've even knit things i didn't like until i saw a finished picture on his blog.

Congratulations to Jared -- I'm glad to see his work recognized and hope we'll be seeing lots more of his down-to-earth original designs.

Happy Knitting!

I thought I won't be buying IK today, but it looks like I am going to, after all...wondering if I should subscribe to IK instead.

Gorgeous design. And inspired from architecture. What fun!

I really love the yarns Jared uses in his garments but I'm not sure I like the neckline in the IK sweater. To me it seems a little unfinished. What I do like, though, is the jacket in the latest posting on his blog. Very nice. I do hope that he decides to publish that design!
