My love of zig zags has reasserted itself in herringbone.  I just can't seem to shake my obsession with the wonderful rhythm of the pattern. I have a pattern lurking around in my head that I want to get down on paper and start knitting. I even have the yarn in my stash, thank goodness! One of the great advantages of a large stash.

This beautifully hand-dyed yarn is older than my marriage by one week - I got it at the Taos Sheep & Wool Festival in October 2005.

Looking through some of my 2010 travel photos I found this one from Bruges that I love so much.

I also happen to see the pattern every morning in my bathroom - I had my shower tiled in herringbone pattern when we renovated the second floor of our house. It makes me unreasonably happy considering it is just tile work!


  1. Oh, me too with the herringbone. I want to rip back my Guernsey Wrap and use the yarn to knit Purl Soho's Big Herringbone Cowl. So far I have resisted.

  2. @K. That *might* be what I am knitting right now! And let me tell you, it is a wee bit addictive!
