Main Street


For all of you who may not have noticed, all my post titles are inspired by song titles or lyrics. Many of them are just straight up quotes, some of them I have modified in such a way that only I can hear they original song in them still. As I write this, I wonder if credit should be given to the folks who came up the songs that inspire me?  I think I would like some opinions on this thought.  Either way, the songs drive the posts. Some times, I sit down with a topic and a song buzzing around.  Some times, a topic but no song, the song will come as I write.  A few times I have quit the post because there was no music.  There is a sound track to my life friends, and it is, at times, a frenetic way to live.

For those who don’t know, there is a song called Telluride, originally recorded by Tim McGraw.  Several years later Josh Gracin decided to resurrect it and made an almost identical recording.  It is possibly based on a true story, but I am not sure if there has ever been any confirmation.  What ever the case, this little town inspires a lot of people.  Including knitters.

Which brings me to the Telluride Aran, by Amy Herzog featured in the Winter 2014 issue of Interweave.  This sweater is gorgeous!  I am so sad that I did not discover it sooner.  Anyway, it will be going in my queue.  It just might turn into a KAL at my cozy little LYS, Needle Rock.  So do stay tuned on that one.

Before I go, just a little teaser.  I am working up the perfect first pattern for you all to enjoy.  I hope everyone needs another cowl…

      I think many Rockers would like to make the Telluride Aran – am thinking in Berroco Ultra Alpaca, a 50/50 wool/alpaca blend that is a dream to knit up & comes in many colorways!

      Thanks, like I said the songs just come to me and there is so much good music in the world!
