SketchAlmost eight months ago, one of my most stylish friends, Kyle Turner, approached me about collaborating on a sweater design. This was the resulting sketch from that conversation. We wanted to keep the Brooker Hollow asymmetrical aesthetic intact, while honoring Kyle’s clean, sometimes-mod, sometimes-preppy, sometimes-old-school style. We initially decided to do a vertical, red color block in the back, but after realizing that would look too much like Prada’s infamous signature, went for a horizontal red block at the neck edge instead. After considering grey stripes on both sleeves near the cuff, we settled on one set of stripes at the cuff and one at the bicep (top left sketch).

It took me a while to get the stitches perfectly even (I now know why my grandmother often avoided working in solid, dark colors — it’s very easy to see any little imperfection), but I’m really happy with the result. I can’t wait to see Kyle sport it in the coming weeks. At least there’s one good outcome to the groundhog’s prediction this year!

Nine months ago, my lovely friend Kaz Phillips Safer of Cat Bird Pictures commissioned a Brooker Hollow sweater, and today I finally delivered on my promise. We shopped for wool together last summer, and settled on a gorgeous gunmetal grey baby alpaca / cashmere / camel / silk blend.

Though I could only knit at a snail’s pace while finishing up my dissertation since then, it was well worth it: the finished product feels like butter and looks fantastic on Kaz!

We also made a tiny wee video. She was that happy.

I haven’t made one of these in a while. I call it a frocket — you know, a pocket for you fridge. Crocheted in 100% cotton, and can be attached to any metal surface with two magnetic clips.
