Welcome to Project Knitway or should I say Project Renottaway? It's my cyberspace place to post my favorite things...thoughts about family and creativity and design. One of my favorite things is making stuff, specifically clothing and accessories from fiber and metal. So you'll see a lot about that here. I also love spending time with my family, so there will be a bit about that too. When I'm not with my family or in my studio, I am most likely at nextdoor, my store. I have always had a store ever since I was a young woman. I started with a weaving store called the niddy noddy in Waukesha eons ago. I ended with nextdoor in Brookfield. It's my dream store filled with great clothing, especially denim. Really nice women work and shop there, it's a fun place to be. You can find us there every day and online at www.shopatnextdoor.com So come for a visit here and there.

Renotta's Believe It or Not... or Fringe Benefits

Just thought I'd throw this in as a variation on the "Flip Vest". It's fun to experiment with yarns and patterns and come up with a whole new look. I took the flip vest pattern and knit it in a rib pattern, laid the piece out as before and flipped the front pieces. Then I sewed up the side seams but left the fronts open to create a nice little vest jacket. I added the fringe for a whole new look. Have fun and stick to your knitting!
