knit & tell

Eons ago I worked with Alan, one of the most wonderful guys in the world. Imagine my surprise, then, when I got an e-mail from his partner, John, who is a KNITTER. And he KNITS AMAZING THINGS for ALAN!!! With John’s permission, I am sharing his latest creations:

There’s Alan! He’s wearing the Oregon Vest, knit with Lopi Icelandic Wool.
And some socks:

No, John’s not color blind. He very cleverly made two different socks so that he would be more motivated to knit two pairs rather than one!

    They aren’t the John and Alan who got married recently up north (Seattle — oh, that would make sense….)? They sent me a LOVELY note and a pic of their marriage certificate set on a piece of knitting — I wonder if it was this piece? John? Alan? That you?

    I like the idea of knitting two completely differently socks as motivation to complete a pair.
