Barbara Walker Rocks

Where have I been? I knew about these books. I have heard about them. La dee da, la dee da, I just thought they had nothing to do with me or my interests. Wrong! Next to EZ, this woman has had THE major influence on my knitting!

I love that I can take a pattern in my head, plug in a Barbara Walker pattern and TADA! FO!

Here is a little something I whipped up.

A glasses case. I had to replace my lost reading glasses and while I was at it replaced my lost sunglasses. Because they dilated my eyes at the eye doctor and I could not see outside because of the brightness.
But you see, they are not just ANY glasses case...
Voila! Two pairs of glasses in one case!

The pattern I used said it yielded a nice, firm fabric, which it does. The yarn? Kool Wool by Lion Brand. The stitch? Barbara Walker. The design? Knitalife Laura. Yahoo!

I will certainly share the pattern! I'll try to write it down in real "patternese" and post it.

I'm another one who has yet to delve into the wonder of Barbara Walker - I know I need to go there, but I keep putting it off - almost like saving a treat! You're inspiring me to run out to the library though!
